Fresh Air Friday!

It was Fresh Air Friday in Balbriggan again last Friday 5th March. Once more, we had brilliant participation from our school with so many children and parents walking or cycling to school on the morning. We also decided to incorporate some litter picking in to our walk. The children put on their rubber gloves and grabbed a plastic bag and worked together to gather up as much rubbish as they could on their way to school! Well done to all of the boys and girls involved and a special word of thanks to the Parents Association and all of our parent and teacher helpers who ensured that the children made it to school safely! We will hopefully be having another Fresh Air Friday...
Viking artwork in 3rd Class

Viking artwork in 3rd Class

We are busy learning about the Vikings this month. Last week in Art, we created a piece of artwork of a viking. We followed a tutorial that taught us how to draw a viking. We used different lines, marks, shapes, patterns and tones in our drawing. Once our drawing was complete, we coloured in the hair, skin, clothes, accessories and tools. We had so much fun making our artwork. We even gave our vikings a cool viking name e.g. Yiv the Bald, Ulf the Brash, Harold Ironside to name a few! Well done...
What makes us unique – GMGY in 3rd Class

What makes us unique – GMGY in 3rd Class

During February in GMGY, we discussed what makes us all unique. In one lesson, we focused on the features on our faces. We each examined our partner’s face and told them about the features we noticed. Then we wrote a poem about our own face. There were a lot of different kinds of poems written e.g. acrostic poems, poems that rhyme and poems that don’t rhyme. Each one was amazing. Here is a display of our work and a poster created by one of the children in our class. The poem on the poster was one that we read at the start of the...
3D shapes in Ms Forde’s 3rd Class

3D shapes in Ms Forde’s 3rd Class

We learned about 3D shapes in Maths in February. A 3D shape have sides (faces), edges and vertices. An apex is the highest corner on a 3D shape. If you opened up a 3D shape, you would see the net. In 2nd class, we had learned about the cube, cuboid, cylinder, sphere and cone. In 3rd class, we have two new 3D shapes – the triangular prism and the square based pyramid. First, we studied and compared different types of 3D shapes. We looked out for flat faces, curved surfaces, straight and curved edges and how many vertices each shape had. Examining and comparing 3D shapes Examining and comparing 3D shapes We used this information to help us play matching card games in our small groups. Matching cards to the picture. We also cut out nets to assemble 3D shapes. This activity was really enjoyable, and we were very proud of our work!
