Room 12 really enjoyed all the activities on Wet Day, as well as the orienteering fun on Friday! Thanks Ms. McCarthy and Mr. Burns and to all the Learning Support teachers for organising the best Active Week ever!!
Third Class had so much fun on Athletics day this week! Look how high we can jump and how fast we can run!
We learned about rivers in Geography and teeth in Science…. What better way to integrate the two topics in Art than “Toothy Fish”. We added a little bit of magic by having a surprise in the picture- folding them in such a way, that there are two versions of fish! We really loved the finished products! Look at the size of the teeth!!!
Ms. Smyth’s Class learned about different famous inventors in History last month. They then worked together in pairs to come up with their own inventions- something that would help in their everyday lives. They talked about all the important things that an advertisement/ poster would need (title, picture, information, price, contact details, tag line…), and made a poster for their invention.
This month in Science, third class were learning about their teeth and mouth. In Room 12, they watched some videos and looked at some pictures, learning lots of new vocabulary associated with their teeth. They learned words like enamel, dentine, pulp, canine, incisor, molars…. Then they carried out an experiment on taste. They took turns to come up to Ms. Smyth and guess what they were tasting, and then had to describe the taste. It was so much fun!
