Illuminated Letters

We’ve been learning about the Book of Kells. The boys studied some illuminated letters from the book and used oil pastels to create their own first initial. They did such a fantastic job!

Reading Buddies

Fourth class joined Ms Cahill’s senior infant boys in the library for some buddy reading this week. We had a lot of fun!

Lava Lamps

This week is Science Week and we are having great fun experimenting in 4th class. Today we made lava lamps and the results were so exciting! Mr. Moore came to visit and see our work!

Making Rainbows

The boys took turns making rainbows using a glass filled with water, some paper and some sunlight!

 

The Titanic

We have been learning about the tragic maiden voyage of The Titanic. The boys did plenty of research in their groups and then wrote some fantastic newspaper reports, painted some amazing abstract Titanic pictures, and made waterfall booklets bursting with interesting facts!

Sturdy Ships

After studying the Titanic, we used sheets of tinfoil to construct sturdy ships. We had some successes and some unfortunate sinking once we added weight to the boats!

Spooky Schoolwork!  

Here in Room 5 we’ve been doing lots of frighteningly fun work in the lead up to Halloween! 

We created Haunted House pictures and wrote “For Sale” ads for them. We mixed a witch’s bubbly green potion using teacher’s tears, crushed bones and bats blood 😉 and we build “Bone Bridge” so that our ghoulish guests of pumpkins, vampires and witches could stand on!

Homework On The Cloud

This week 4th class have been working hard at presenting PowerPoint presentations. The boys researched a topic of their choice at home and made a PowerPoint about it before presenting it to the class. It has been SO interesting and we’ve all learned a lot about many different topics, from hurricanes to cruises, Premier League to scooters, and more!
