In October we tried to make the best of the weather with plenty of outdoor PE and garden time. We also created some Autumn and Hallowe’en inspired art and wrote sentences about Autumn as Gaeilge. In science we looked at the story of milk so we made our own butter and ice-cream! We looked at Procedural Writing in English and also learned about the history of Hallowe’en. We had Student Council and Green School Elections. We tried out some activities for Maths week including a Kahoot quiz, learning how to do Sudokus, a problem solving relay race and a maths trail. We also visited St Saviour’s Church for a church trail. We did an outdoor art workshop and tried the tower STEM challenge too. To finish off a fun filled month we had a fun dress up day!
September in 3rd and 4th class was busy. We focused on lots of wellbeing activities in the first couple of weeks as well as using the outdoor classroom and grass areas for drama, PE and RE. We looked at the genre of report writing and wrote reports in English and in Irish. We enjoyed a trip to Avondale for a bike workshop during Bike Week – thank you to Hugh and his assistant for giving up their time! The children created wonderful pictures of bikes in art as well. Noelie returned for rugby on Mondays and the children created wonderful bridges as part of their work on bridges in Science. We are looking foward to a fun filled October!
Here are some highlights from the 20129/2020 school year from 3rd and 4th classes.
We exhibited at Science Blast in the RDS. Our project was “How Best to Fly a Kite?”. We had a super day and received great feedback from the judges.
What a great day of learning and fun we also had at the Green School’s Action Day. We made sock puppets, learned about recycling and heard about reducing plastic in our homes.
We welcomed the Glendalough Park Rangers to our classroom and learned lots about nature all around us.
4th class took part in Peace Proms in the RDS. What an amazing experience.
Our Christmas Play this year was “Stable Manners”. We loved being part of the play.
The School Christmas Party was a wonderful evening of magic and festivities. It is one of the highlights of the year.
We took part in the Cross Country Races in Avondale. It is so nice to be out in the fresh air and representing our school.
The student council hosted a coffee morning which we will got involved in. It was a lovely morning and we raised some money for a local charity.
We are delighted to be back at tennis, rugby & GAA training. It is also lovely to see Mr Dunne and orchestra starts back for orchestra members.
