November in Katie’s Third Class
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!
Winter performances are listed below. Please note siblings within the school cannot attend at these times as they are in their lessons. We aim to host an in school performance for all children to perform for other classes and allow their brothers, sisters and friends to see their shows.

September & October in Marcella’s First Class.
We have been working on our tricky words daily using games and play-dough.
In Maths, we revisited 2D shapes and made our very own shape monsters. We also spent time revising o’clock and half past.
First Class have also been busy learning lots of new poems and one of our favourites was, ‘I’m Very Happy To Be Me.’ This poem celebrated individuality and encouraged the children to appreciate their own unique qualities.
During Story Time, we loved listening to George’s Marvellous Medicine and we designed our own book covers.
Keep up the hard work First Class!
September and October
The Evergreen Class have had a very busy first few months back in school. We have been doing lots of work in our own class, as well as with Junior and Senior Infants. We are working with Junior and Senior Infants for power hour, Maths and English activities, Aistear, Art and P.E.
We had loads of fun dressing up at the end of October.
