Art in Louise’s Junior Infants
Movie Makers in Room 9
We learned all about Tom Crean this month. Tom Crean is an Irish hero. He is one of Ireland’s greatest Antarctic explorers. We enjoyed learning all about his expeditions to the South Pole. In art,we constructed models of his three ships: The Discovery, The Terra Nova and The Endurance.
As well as that, we created a short movie based on the story of Tom’s life. We worked very hard on this and we hope you enjoy it.
January in Katie’s Third Class
We have been very busy in Katie’s third class this month. We have been learning all about Ancient Rome in history. The boys and girls have been working on group projects, making constructions of Ancient Roman buildings, designing Roman inspired mosaics and putting together a book about Ancient Rome.
We began learning about ‘chance’ in maths this week. We talked about the ‘chance’ of different scenarios occurring and made predictions about the weather. We completed dice activities to investigate the likelihood of different numbers appearing!
Science has been very exciting this month as we have been learning all about heat. We did lots of different experiments to investigate conduction, insulation and convection. Today we completed an experiment to investigate how heat causes molecules to move faster.
