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.

October in Katie’s Third Class
September in Katie’s Third Class
September was a busy month for Katie’s new third class boys and girls! To begin the school year everyone decorated a balloon with their name, ready to start our new adventure in third class. The children then created wonderful portraits of each other. They also learned about Pablo Picasso and created self-portraits in Picasso’s cubist style.
The Royal County was the highlight of our geography lessons. We learned all about the rivers, famous landmarks and hills in Co. Meath. Everyone made a fact file to show what they had learned.
Science was a lot of fun this month. We completed experiments to investigate the conditions necessary for plant growth.
We also learned about the heart and took part in an experiment to see just how hard the heart works in a minute! We discovered that no one in our class could work quite as hard as the heart!
