3rd Class September & October

3rd Class have been very busy this term. At the moment we are very busy reading our books for the MS Readathon. We are trying to raise as much money as we can for people with MS.

We also had Maths week this term too. We got to do lots of fun, enjoyable maths activities. Mr O’ Leocháin and Mrs Mc Cullagh came in to our classrooms and did a Maths hour with us. We had to solve lots of challenging maths problems. We went on a maths trail around the school playground too. At home we created some Maths Eyes projects. We presented them to the class and everyone had to use their Maths eyes to solve the problems. We had lots of Times Tables champions too as we are working very hard on our tables this term.

We have been doing lots of beautiful art projects too. We have created our own Self-Portrait silhouettes and bubble name art. We created dancing skeletons using cotton buds as well as spooky haunted house silhouettes, to name but a few!

We are also doing football every week with our coach Marie. Here we get to practice our gaelic skills such as hand-passing and kicking. We have great fun every Thursday!

We have been busy learning about the human body particularly the skeleton and its bones. We now know all about the Stone and Bronze Age too in History as well as farming methods in the past.We are looking forward to next terms topics already. Happy Halloween 3rd Class!
