We had great fun during Science Week! We had a zoom session with Mark the Science Guy. He showed us how to make mini rockets.
Maths Week 2022
We had great fun celebrating Maths Week 2022. We played plenty of Maths games with the Infants and took them on a Maths Trail around the school.
We also teamed up with 5th and 6th class for a Maths Trail and a giant table quiz to end the week off.
We've been enjoying being reading buddies with the Infants. They come to our class twice a week for reading and oral language practice.
Music in the Classroom
We've been having fun practicing our rhythm on percussion instruments. We joined in the 'Click Song' using African drums, tamborines, shakers and lots of other interesting instruments. Follow the link below to join in too!
We had a super time meeting author Marita Conlon McKenna in Navan Library. She told us all about her life, her love for writing and where the inspiration for her very famous novel 'Under the Hawthorn Tree' came from.
The children enjoyed a visit from Gareth who introduced them to Lightning and Bolt, his hawk and peregrine falcon.
So far we have been focusing on the Paint and Colour strand of the curriculum. We have enjoyed linking our art to our History themes. We made stone age cave paintings and some salmon of knowledge paintings.
A big welcome back to school to all the boys and girls in 3rd and 4th Class. I am looking forward to a great year ahead!
The children have been enjoying weekly GAA training sessions with coach David.
As part of the 'Fabric and Fibre' strand the children have been practicing their needlework.
Famous Women from History
The children have been learning about interesting women in history who have made huge contributions to the world. One woman they learned about was Amelia Earhart. The children created a large mural and wrote reports about her.
Catholic School's Week
We enjoyed celebrating Catholic School's Week. We visited our local church where the children lit candles in appreciation for all the people in their lives who love them and help them to develop their faith.
