Ms. Logue’s 3rd Class
The festive period is always busy, and this December was no different. The children had great fun finishing their novel, James and the Giant Peach, ag dul ag siopadóireacht in Gaeilge, lparticipating in a drumming workshop, and of course, preparing their Christmas concert! We’re so glad to have a wonderful student council, too, who organised events such as the bake sale, raffle, the dancers’ dash to the North Pole, and Christmas movie afternoon.
Merry Christmas from all in third class 2!
November was jam-packed with recount writing, connections while reading, multiplication, fractions, and music-making. One of the highlights of this month was Zumba dancing with our coach, Audrey. Our Friday afternoons were so fun! We also continued to learn about Vikings, including the weapons they used and how to use them.
We had so much fun in October. We celebrated Friendship Week, continued our Viking course, and created some collages using frottage and other printing techniques. We also experimented with the effects of sugar on enamel, completed lots of challenges for Maths Week, and, of course, enjoyed some spooky Hallowe’en stories and art.
The children had a very busy September! Amongst other things, we learned about making predictions when reading and how to write a recount in English; place value and addition in Maths; and all about Mé Féin in Gaeilge! The children also created some beautiful self portraits in Art and created some very inventive compositions in Music.
A real highlight of our September was our sessions with GAA coach, Jay. Here’s a sneak peak!
The children have also been enjoying their course with archaeologist, Mark. Everyone had a great time in our Viking house examining artefacts and fossils and learning all about the Vikings. The children then worked in teams in The Big Dig, using their archaeology skills and uncovering all sorts!
