3rd Class/4th Class
We did some lovely descriptive writing this term. We selected someone (or a pet) to write a descriptive piece on. We used lots of adjectives and similes to make our descriptions more interesting and detailed. We really enjoyed listening to each other's work and visualising the person (or pet) described.
Everybody can feel a little stressed and overwhelmed at times. We made these mind jars as part of our SPHE class to help us remember that sometimes we can feel strong emotions but eventually they pass. We learned that feelings are like visitors that come and go. We love to watch our mind jars settling down. We find them very relaxing and calming.
In Geography and Science classes we learned all about Irish mammals. We researched, made and presented our wonderful projects to the class. We learned a lot from each other!
We looked at the work of impressionist painters and were inspired to create lovely atmospheric autumn pictures. We also made autumn trees out of paper bags! We loved how they turned out.
We really enjoyed Space Week this year. We carried out an experiment to show that the moon is nine and a half times the circumference of the earth away. We also learned that the moon is a quarter the size of the earth. We learned and performed (with style!) the David Bowie song Starman and did a 'Dance of the Planets'. Then we made lovely pastel drawings of the solar system.
