We've really enjoyed our Christmas music study in the run up to Christmas. We got to listen to lots of well-known Christmas music, old and new. We all sang along and now we're really in the festive spirit!
3rd & 4th Class really enjoyed their recent workshop in Ardee Library. The ‘Go Fly Your Kite’ workshop focused on the science and technology of flight. The children took part in experiments and learned about aerodynamics and gravity.
Everyone decorated their own kite and learned how to fly it. It's not as easy as it looks!
Lots of the boys and girls from 3rd & 4th recently took part in the F.A.I Futsal competition in D.K.I.T. They showed great skill and teamwork.
We really enjoyed getting out and looking for some autumnal items. Here's what we collected:
_ A deciduous leaf
_ An evergreen leaf
_ A red berry
_ A black berry
_ A wind blown seed
_ A nut
_ A feather
_ A pink flower
_ A yellow flower
Animals that hide
_ An animal under a stone
_ An animal on a leaf
From the trunk of a tree
Use your senses
_ Something with a scent you liked
We worked in small groups and everyone had lots of fun!
3rd & 4th class had lots of fun making model lungs and investigating how the lungs work.
We learned sometimes experiments don't always go to plan and it's ok to stop, think about it again and start over.
And guess what!? In the end, each group got their lungs to work :)
Fourth class had a brilliant day showcasing our science project at Science Blast in Belfast. Check out our STEM page for photos and more information.
We've been enjoying working together on our group projects. We're researching native Australian animals
