We’ve had a great October in Pre-Fab 3. We went on two trips, to see the De La Salle show and to an art workshop in Garter Lane. We helped First Class with reading and PE games; hopefully we can meet up with them again soon.
There was big excitement when a crew from WLR FM came to give Emily P. her prize from winning “Are You Smarter Than a Forty Year Old?” The Lego Spike Essentials set she won for the school are really impressive and we’ve made a start figuring out how to use all the parts.
We also made chocolate apples for Halloween and had great fun dressing up as well.
We have been really busy in 4th Class; September has been going by so fast! We welcomed two new girls, Yasmim and Cera. They have been settling in really well.
We’ve been enjoying going to Walsh Park to play rounders for PE. We read and watched video clips about how plants & animals adapt to their environment, and we mixed & blended paint to show chameleons “changing” from one colour to another. We also interviewed parents & grandparents about “Games & Pastimes” from their childhood, and how they think things have changed, for better or worse. We walked down to Paddy Brown’s Road Library to take part in an art workshop, drawing a scene from our favourite books. We’re lucky to have such a nice little library so close to us!
We were really proud of Zoey and Lucy who represented the school in the Schools Cross Country event. They did so well and had a great time. Zoey even brought back a medal!
Emily Power had a very busy morning on Friday 23rd. She was on WLR FM radio before school, taking part in “Are You Smarter Than a Forty Year Old?” It turns out that she is! Emily won a Lego set for the school worth €300… Thanks Emily!!
