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!
The boys and girls in 3rd and 4th class recently took part in the FAI Futsal Day in Oriel Park. Futsal is 5 a side soccer, played indoors on a small, hard court. Everyone made a great effort and played well. It was great fun!
This week we did a Maths Trail. It was an Easter one because it is nearly Easter. We had to hunt for Easter eggs. Inside the eggs were multiplication sums. The eggs were hidden around the school yard for us to find. When you found an egg, there was two multiplication sums. You had to figure out the answer. Each answer had a letter. For example- 4x4 =16 16=H. H would be the first letter of the code breaker. Once you found all the eggs, it would reveal a secret message.In the end the message was- He has a Easter chicken. The prize was an Easter egg. We had great fun using our Maths knowledge to solve the code.

For Engineers Week 3rd and 4th class made boats.We were given our materials which were...
2 paper cups
Some boats floated but others sank.We stuck the two cups together and put the straws at the bottom. We used the duct tape to sticks the objects together. Different groups did different methods but most of them worked. We tested them out in a basin of water. We used coins as passengers. We had to see how many passengers our boat could hold.

We were doing all about magnets and forces this week in science. We had a great time playing with the magnets, trying to discover what was magnetic and what wasn't. As Valentine's Day was coming up, we decided to make some Magnetic Love Bugs. First we had to design our bugs. Next we stuck some magnet to them. We had great fun discovering what they could stick to in the classroom.
In February Eanna Ní Lamhna came to visit our school. She taught us about animals and hibernation.We had a lot of fun and learned loads of facts.
We went outside and she taught us about leaves and the different types of trees. We had great fun walking around the school yard.
We loved our visit from Eanna and hope she can come back and teach us more.
