3rd and 4th class were very lucky to get the opportunity to attend a 3D print workshop held in Ardee Library as part of the 2018 Science Festival. We learned about 3D printing and the technology needed for it to work. It was really interesting. We printed a mini hand. We all got a turn to be scanned as a 3D image too.
We really enjoyed our book reading today. Author, Olive Mooney came to our school to read some extracts from her series The Chronicles of Cadaver College. Olive gave us some creative writing and story planning tips too.
We've been learning about Forces this month.
We made parachutes from different materials and tested them out.
We have been working on Limericks. A Limerick is a funny poem with five lines.
Here's some we came up with:
There once was a kangaroo
who ran away from the zoo.
He skipped and he hopped,
till he couldn't stop.
And suddenly off he flew! By Patrick, Rang 4
Mrs Duffy said make up a rhyme,
But I ran out of time!
The clock ticked away
And I could not stay,
Therefore I committed a homework crime! By Conaill. Rang 4
There once was a girl called Jane
She was a very big pain.
She loved cheese,
but it made her sneeze.
Poor old Jane the Pain. By Aisling. Rang 3
Third and Fourth class have been enjoying getting active throughout the school day. We have been taking part in 10 @ 10 and we have been enjoying movement breaks with Go Noodle too.
We recently completed a topic of procedural writing. Afterwards we wrote instructions on how to make milkshakes. We got to make 3 different flavours. Yum yum!
