Third Class-Term 2 2022/23

3rd class have enjoyed learning all about Great Britain and Egypt. They completed and presented excellent projects which were very interesting.  As well as that, we painted Egyptian headdresses called Nemes. We had great fun wearing them in class and home. In Science, we experimented with a balloon and pieces of paper which demonstrated how static electricity works. This was amazing to see. We had Charlie from Buccaneers who taught us all about tag rugby. We are also currently enjoying Gaelic football with Conor from Clan na Gael. In SPHE we are doing the Stay Safe Programme. It is teaching us to treat others with respect and to be aware of the signs of bullying. We had a very busy few weeks after Christmas and are looking forward to celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. 

Third Class-Term 1 2022

This term, as part of Heritage in Schools, we went on a history trail around the Cloonakilla area with Martin Curley. In History, we learned about life in the Stone Age and Bronze Age. We also looked at ways to save electricity at home and in school.  In order to improve our health and fitness, we have started The Daily Mile challenge. This involves running 3 laps of the school, 3 days a week. We had great fun during Maths Week and are really looking forward to the Halloween break.

Term 3

In 3rd class, we have been busy learning about the amazing Irish explorer, Tom Crean. We used pastel and pencils to shade in his features to create texture in the drawing. In Gaeilge, we were learning about the weather. We created thunder and lightning silhouettes using paint and sponges. 

We talked about the importance of staying safe on the roads and discussed the importance of the ‘Safe Cross Code’ 

During the month of May, we celebrate Our Lady. We set up a May altar in our classroom. We talked through a Powerpoint and coloured in a stained glass picture of Our Lady.

Term 2 Third Class

Third class have been learning about Egypt. We had great fun finding out some interesting facts and creating posters to display what we have learned. Have a look at the posters we made. We also learned about all the famous landmarks in the United Kingdom. There are some very interesting places that we would like to visit in the future.
