Fourth Class

Miss Fitzgerald

Welcome to our Fourth Class page.

December… We showed our support to the Waterford Hurling team by wearing blue and white. Check out our photographs below.

November…Tá “Bia” againn mar téama sa Ghaeilge. Bhíomar ag foghlaim na torthaí & glasraí agus inniú, rinneamar Deoch na Torthaí. Scríobhamar an Oideas ar dtús, agus chuireamar torthaí difriúla le chéile isteach sa meascthóir. Bhí iógart reoite agus sú oráiste againn freisin. Thaitin an deoch go mór le gach grúpa. Féach ar na phictiurí agus an oideas.   

Our theme in Irish is Food, and we’ve been learning the names of fruits & vegetables. Today we made fruit drinks/smoothies in groups. First, we wrote the recipe together. Then we prepared fruits to put them into the blender. We had frozen yogurt and orange juice too. Each group really liked the drink they made. Have a look at our photos and the recipe. 

We’re really enjoyed Science Week and were very grateful to the University of Limerick for sending us six Edison robots to try out. We learned a little about how robots have been developing, and how useful they are in manufacturing. These Edison robots are programmed to read certain barcodes, and we were able to set them to search for and track lines or light (with a torch), to detect/avoid obstacles, and to sense/respond to claps. It was great fun figuring it all out!
October… We also really enjoyed our Halloween party before midterm, and it’s nice to remember all the different costumes and colours.

September… We’ve been working hard in 4th Class and our teacher is very pleased with us! We have gotten used to working in a pod, and keeping to our class bubble.

We interviewed parents and grandparents about games and pastimes that were popular when they were our age; it was fun to find both similarities and differences.
We read about the history of Irish dancing, and used wax-resist paint to design Irish dancing dresses.
Next we learned about the history of New Zealand and of the Maori culture.
Some of the masks we designed are probably more friendly looking than the real tribal masks, but luckily we won’t be going to battle any time soon!

Our latest SESE topic is Germany, so we’ve been learning a song, some German phrases, numbers & colours. It’s fun learning about life in Germany.
