Third Class (1)
Welcome to our class page. We are so happy to have the children back in HCNS.
Please take a look at what we have been up to in 3rd Class 1.
In science we have been learning about different materials and how they can be changed by heating, cooling & dissolving. In our pods, we came up with some testable questions. Once we carefully carried out our experiment, we observed the changes after different periods of time. Later, we decided if these changes were reversible or irreversible.
This month, we worked really hard on our Christmas play. Enjoy!
Good focus in lessons. Improved participation in Gaeilge and Maths, for her terrific effort and expression when reading our class novel and also a clear, articulate presentation of her ‘Sweden’ project and his superb effort rehearsing our school play and learning his lines.
Happy Halloween 🎃
Well done to this months award winners! For working so hard with his Irish and handwriting, for her enthusiastic, positive, problem solving attitude and for giving a 100% in all his lessons.
We created these Halloween Masks 🎃🎭
First, we planned our mask designs on a piece of paper. Then we carefully sketched our designs out using a pencil. After that, we began painting our designs with a thin paintbrush. Lastly, we added some finishing touches like feathers and sequins.
We have been developing our orienteering skills and learning about map symbols & keys.
We used the iPads and our safe search engine ‘Kiddle’ to research information about frogs. We used bullet points to recordbresearch notes in our plan. We later transferred our notes into full sentences and completed a frog report in our copies.
Úr an Gaeilge- Bí ag scríobh!
In history, we have been learning all about archaeology. We completed a mini-dig in our classroom and then used our excavation skills to take part in a ‘big dig’ outside. We gathered all our artefacts and discussed what they were used for in Viking times.
- We carried out a science experiment to investigate our own hand hygiene and the importance of washing our hands correctly with soap and water.
- We made predictions about what will happen to our different samples.
- We carried out some “Getting to know you” activities to find out about our similarities and differences.
- We also shared information about our Summer break and the places we visited.
