This week third class were bird watching. One of our activities was to make your own bird feeder. We had great fun doing this and also discovered lots of birds that are visiting our gardens!
Last week third class were exploring the solar system. We discovered the names of all the planets and how far away they are from earth. We also wrote some very imaginative stories, pretending to be an alien and finally we produced some amazing displays of the planets for art!
Third to Sixth Class had a fashion show in the hall on World Book day.
Third Class had author Natasha Mc a’Bháird in to visit and read to us. We also had some fantastic costumes on the day and even a specially written WBD song performance! We also had a book swap in class.
Mr. Edge, a retired structural engineer, came to talk to 3rd and 4th classes about engineering. We learned about the different types of engineers and the work that they do.
Third class have been working really hard on their first big history project – “Ancient Egypt”. We have learned all about the Pharaohs, the Pyramids, the importance of the River Nile, King Tutankhamun, Gods and Goddesses and the sarcophagus. We each presented our project in class; some used posters, some had a booklet format, some did a PowerPoint presentation and someone even made an Ancient Egypt Times. We also made something to go with our projects! Everyone did amazing work and our classroom displays looked fantastic!
Some 6th class members taking on the teacher reins to teach 3rd class some PE games!
Mrs. Duffy’s third class were hoping for snow this January but we’ve had none yet! We used chalk to create these lovely snow scenes.
