During February we continued to explore the print strand in art. The boys created beautiful print bridges using paint and masking tape, inspired by the work of Claude Monet. In history, we looked at games and pastimes in the past and the boys brought in some board games which they had lots of fun playing! The tulips, which we planted in the last term, had come up so the boys took them home and they are updating me every day on their progress. It sounds like they are an array of colours! We also celebrated Valentine’s Day…. Have a look!!

This month the boys learned all about fractions in maths. We split our pizzas into halves and quarters to understand fractions a little better. Thinking about pizza made us hungry!

We had a messy month of art as we explored print.

We also learned about Ancient Egypt and through a combination of independent research and class exploration the boys created wonderful projects. Good work boys!

Have a look….

Our classroom was full to the brim with very creepy characters the day of our Halloween holidays! Well done to the boys for the excellent effort they put into their costumes. To celebrate the spooky season the boys made some gooey green slime with the help of Colette. It was messy work but lots of fun and the end product didn’t disappoint, thanks Colette! The boys also planted tulips and we are hopeful they will come to life next spring. The boys put their all into their athletics skills in P.E. and produced some fabulous drawings as part of their art classes which we be displayed in their scrap book for you to see. Next term we will be busy preparing for our Christmas concert. We are also going on an exciting adventure to UCC on November 22nd to attend a junior conferring. Watch this space to see how we get on!

September

October 8, 2018

We have had a very busy September in 3rd class! In our geography and science classes the boys learned about lots of different types of bridges, how they are built and why they are so important.  They examined lots of famous bridges around the world. Every boy researched a famous bridge at home and wrote about it. They picked their favourite type of bridge and based their artwork on it. This term the boys are focusing on drawing so they needed to draw their own bridge. First they painted the background using warm colours for the sky at sunset and cool colours for the water. Then they drew they bridges. They turned out beautifully, well done boys!
