3rd Class – Ms. Crosse
A Visit from America
Last week we had some visitors from Maine, USA. The boys were very excited to meet some American student teachers. They taught us a little bit about American culture, we also played some fun games and learned a little bit about summer camps in Maine. Afterwards Mr Conaghan’s class gave an excellent presentation on Irish history and culture. They discussed topics such as the 1916 Easter Rising, the famine and Irish emigration to the USA.
Venice in the Classroom!!
We were studying Italy for Culture Day. We learned about the different landmarks, traditions, food and customs in Italy. We also looked at the beautiful city of Venice and decided to make our very own Venetian masks. The boys really enjoyed painting their masks with different colours and wearing them afterwards.
Junior Infants and third class have been joining up together to do some Buddy Reading every Tuesday in the library.
The Bronze Age
We’ve been learning about the Bronze Age in room 6. We decided to get artistic and create our own Bronze Age artefacts.
Science Fun with Junior Einstein
We made a mess!!!
The boys in 3rd class spent six weeks doing yoga and mindfulness. Every Wednesday morning they took some time out to meditate and relax. The boys learned lots of different yoga poses, their favourite was the warrior pose.
Van Gogh and Monet!
The boys in third class have been learning about famous artists Van Gogh and Monet. We recreated their wonderful art pieces. What a talented bunch!!!
Peace Proms 2017
This year the choir participated in Peace Proms 2017. They sang with the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland under conductor Greg Beardsell in the RDS on Saturday night. It was a fun-filled evening with lots of different performances. The boys have been rehearsing for Peace Proms since October and they did the school proud on Saturday night!
