Wishing everyone a peaceful and Merry Christmas. See you all in the new year 🙂
Today, some of third and fourth class were at a rehearsal for the Peace Proms. Meanwhile, the rest of third and fourth class, were in Ms Willoughby’s room. They all made door hangers using foam. We all had to think really hard about the design we wanted to choose.
We decorated the door hangers using; pom poms, googly eyes, colours, markers and foam shapes. We had a fun day here are the finished designs.
Yesterday we designed a front cover for our SALF folder, which means Self-Assessment Learning Folder.
Tonight, we are going to write about a piece of work that made us proud of ourselves. I can’t wait to see what we write about. We are then going to put that into our folders.
In June, we’ll be able to see how much we have improved and look back on our year in third class.
Looking forward to seeing your work.
Well done to Sam, last week’s ‘Dalta na Seachtaine’.
We had another great week. We learned a new song called ‘Bualadh Bos’, here’s the link so you can all practice at home.
We had an exciting Science lesson where we learned all about ‘insulating’ materials. We found that cotton wool was a good insulator because it kept the water warm. Plastic wasn’t the best insulator because it allowed some of the heat escape and didn’t insulate it as well as the tin foil and cotton wool.
In Maths, we are still learning all about fractions and are moving onto ‘tenths’ this week, how exciting!
Here’s a great website where you can practice answering the questions and building a fraction wall. http://www.topmarks.co.uk/Flash.aspx?f=Fractionsv7
In History, we learned all about Feasts and festivals in the past. Where does ‘San Fermin’ take place?
Looking forward to another busy and exciting week in rang a trí.
Here’s the song called ‘Hennessey’s Medley’ by Arcady. In this song, we noticed lots of different instruments. It’s a traditional Irish song with a strong beat. To show a strong beat, we clapped, to show a weak beat, we tapped it out on our legs. We compared this song to a relaxing song with a weak beat, the results were very interesting.
We also learned a song called ‘Hallelujah’ by Leonard Cohen, which featured in the movie, Shrek.
