Happy Easter Everyone! It has been a productive, enjoyable few months in rang a ceathair!
4thclass has been a ‘hive’ of activity since Christmas. We studied the anatomy and lifecycle of a honeybee which led to our writing of a detailed, scientific explanation of the different stages of a honeybee’s development. Another cycle which we learned all about, was the Water Cycle. We are now very confident in writing explanatory texts after lots of research on the laptops!
In Gaeilge, we became weather reporters! It was exciting to present the’ réamhaisnéis na haimsire’ os comhair an ranga! Sár Mhaith a pháistí! The children learned a very funny poem called ‘Dumpysaurus agus an chearc’ which they love to recite! 4th class are also excellent singers. ‘The Green Grass Grew All Around’ was a catchy song we sang in class. It gets confusing but we mastered it!
Pancake Day and Grandparents Day were also fun days which we celebrated! The children enjoyed yummy, chocolate treats thanks to 6th class. Did you see that we had a Litter Pick Up day too? We used pickers, bags and gloves to cleanup our school grounds! The place is looking great!
World Book Day was lots of fun! We dressed up as our favourite book characters and took part in a ‘Book Quiz’ in class. We then did a book scavenger hunt where we were given the task of finding information such as ‘item of food/clothing’ or an ‘interesting sentence’ in the books from our library! We listened to an audio book by Roald Dahl which was super relaxing while we designed bookmarks. Take a look at our origami monster bookmarks which we designed also!
Have a look at our Zentangle Easter Bunnies and ciseáin cásca which we created this week! Thanks also to Marian who has helped us everyday in the classroom!
Happy Easter from 4th class!
