Term 3 Fourth Class

The two Fourth classes were very busy this term. We used the outdoor classroom for some lessons. We did plenty of projects in S.E.S.E. We learned interesting facts about Italy. We took part in An Taisce`s National Spring Clean on the week of the 26th of April. We are taking part in the Green Schools Outdoor Learning Programme. We are exploring nature in our school grounds. We were also very busy using the online platform Seesaw. This school year we uploaded projects, videos, and art to Seesaw in all subjects. We enjoyed Active School week and played plenty of sports. Here are some of our Arts and Crafts activities!

We painted colourful spring meadows using a variety of painting tools (but not a paintbrush).

Active Schools Week!

Our Local History Trip

On Wednesday 21st October the 2 fourth classes embarked on a local history trail to Meehambee. It was a 2.6km walk to our destination. Lots of fresh air and exercise! On the way we completed a Science trail noting all the signs of Autumn around us. When we reached the dolmen we acted like historians looking for clues from the past. Did you know Meehambee dolmen was built 5520 years ago? The Neolithic people used the dolmen as a burial chamber. Drum Heritage group have lovely information boards explaining more about the history and nature in the area. It is well worth a visit. We had a fantastic day out.
