November in Katie’s Third Class

November was a very busy month for Katie’s third class. Not only did we have our usual science lessons, we also took part in science week. We completed many experiments (e.g. the balloon experiment which demonstrated that anything that moves uses energy), tried to use as little energy as we possibly could in our school and created posters for new inventions that would only use renewable energy. We also made telephones from cups and strings to investigate how sound travels.

  

  

Diwali was a theme we explored in Learn Together this month. The children learned about the Hindu ‘Festival of Light’ and created beautiful clay pots and carved Rangoli symbols on them.

  

Fractions was an area explored in maths this month. Everyone created fraction paper plates to show halves, quarters and eighths. The children showed equivalent fractions using their paper plates and their fraction wall.

  

We learned about the Celts and the Iron Age in history. The boys and girls created fantastic still images and improvisation scenes to depict Celtic life in Ireland long ago.

November in Róisín’s Third Class

Róisín’s 3rd class have been very busy this November! This month we have been practising narrative writing and are in the process of publishing our very own book!

We started Léim sa Litríocht this month which is really helping improve our reading as Gaeilge.

 

This month we learned a lot about the life of the artist Vincent van Gogh. We created still life drawings of natural and manufactured objects which we really enjoyed. We also painted Vincent van Gogh’s Wheat Field with Crows.

 

We had lots of fun during Science Week this month. Some of us brought in our own experiments from home which were really interesting. We made lava lamps using plastic bottles, food colouring, sunflower oil and an alka-seltzer tablet!

 

We became the famous inventor Alexander Graham Bell this month and investigated if sound can travel through string. IT DOES!
