Class 3 have been doing lots of practical work this month. We have been looking at extreme weathers, testing materials to see if they were waterproof and organising events into correct seasons. We have also enjoyed lots of art activities including a pottery workshop, St. Patrick’s art, Mother’s day and Easter cards and also thoroughly enjoyed the Junior School Easter Craft morning.
We are continuing work on the topic ‘water’. The children enjoyed our floating and sinking activity using everyday objects.
They also completed a shared writing activity by composing and then writing a letter to a life guard inviting him to come and talk to us about keeping safe at the pool and around water.
The pupils made chocolate hearts and lollies for valentine’s day.
They have begun work on ‘Spring’.
They are working very hard on time work.
Class 3 thoroughly enjoyed getting messy during the Junior School Christmas Craft Morning.
Class 3 thoroughly enjoyed listening to and participating in a music workshop when the Ulster Scots came to school.
Another busy month in class. The children have been continuing to work on money and have loved being the shopkeeper and customers. We continued with the ‘All About Me’ topic and have looked at body parts and how are bodies move. In cookery the children have made funny fruit mouths, harvest vegetable soup and a ‘Smartie’ cake. The highlight of the month was going on an Autumn walk around the school grounds and then on a trip to the park.
Class 3 enjoyed an Autumn walk at the park. The children collected lots of different leaves and saw squirrels, swans, geese and ducks. They also enjoyed playing in the park.
We have all settled well into our new classroom. Class 3 welcome two new pupils to Donard school – Sienna and Jay.
Class 3 watched their caterpillars turn into beautiful butterflies.
