Helmet Safety Experiment with Karen

Karen our green school's officer came to several classes today to teach us about the importance of wearing a helmet. We performed an experiment using eggs and Styrofoam to see what would happen if we didn't wear a helmet. We also learnt the correct way to fit a helmet.

Terrific Tour for 3rd and 4th Class

3rd and 4th class went on a school tour on Friday 15th April. We walked to the luas and traveled to the city centre. It was very exciting on the luas. We then went to The Ark Theatre and enjoyed a fantastic performance by a string quartet called the Graffiti Classics. They played instruments that were a 100 years old. They played lots of great classical pieces like the can can. We learned lots of cool facts about music. We really enjoyed the concert.

3D shape hunt by Ms. O'Donovan's class

We had a 3D shape hunt today. We searched our school to see what 3D shapes we could find. We are surrounded by 3D shapes in our environment. We then had to draw and name our 3D shapes on our record sheets. We had great fun!

Perfect Projects!

3rd and 4th Class have been busy at work over the last three weeks, completing our projects. We learnt how to pick a topic for our project, make a plan, research, take notes and write paragraphs and facts in our own words. We really enjoyed doing our projects. Come and visit our classroom if you want to learn lots of facts about Snakes, Australia, Kittens, Cycling and many more cool subjects.

Awesome Artwork by 3rd and 4th Class

We worked on making some 3D forms in our Art Lesson this week as part of our Clay Strand. We concentrated on making solid structures. Most of our pieces were made from joining cylindrical and spherical shapes and then etching into them with lollipop sticks and cocktail sticks to add texture and detail.
