Third class used iPads for research recently. We researched facts about animals that live in Ireland.
Third Class were excited to mix different paint to create lots of different colours.
Last Tuesday and this Monday Ms Kelly’s and Mrs Duffy’s Third Classes went to the Taney Lawn Tennis Club for their Summer outings. We had beautiful, sunny weather both days, which was just perfect for the trip. When we got to the tennis courts we had a lovely picnic. After that we practised our tennis skills and played a few games and even had a few matches. We had a great time and really enjoyed the day!
Third class had so much fun at our Sports Day…. we did orienteering, Zumba with Carla, fun races and relays and a huge game of rounders. In between all the activities (and when the yards weren’t available) we played board games in the classroom. Finally, we all finished with an obstacle course which went all the way to the ice-cream van! What a fun day!
Third class have joined a series of webinars all about the wildlife in Ireland, hosted by Nature Cubs Ireland. They were so interesting and we learned lots. One of the sessions gave us suggestions for using nature in art. We really enjoyed participating, especially doing art too!!
Last week Third class made super storage boxes using empty cereal boxes. We were all very impressed with our colourful monster boxes!
Third class became amazing poets today!!! We used all of our senses to write poems about an emotion. They are really impressive!
Third class have worked really hard researching and presenting amazing projects all about Ancient Egypt. We learned lots about different Gods and Goddesses, King Tutankhamun, Cleopatra, the pyramids, the Sphinx and buildings, food of the time and hieroglyphics. Lots of us also made something to help us present our projects. We even had a life-size mummy in our classroom!!!
