We have been following ‘The Way to Wellness Initiative’. We are really enjoying the relaxing meditations, recipes, self care tips and exercises in the program. This week we decided to make the healthy oat cookies. They were a massive hit in our class! Check out the photos of us enjoying our baking and devouring the delicious cookies.


3rd Class are beyond excited to be back to school this week. We had so much fun dressing up for Green Day to celebrate St Patrick’s Day. We really enjoyed watching the school parade in the yard, it brought so much excitement and fun. The sun shone down gloriously in the afternoon when we danced our socks off during our outdoor céilí.

We’ve been getting into the Christmas spirit this week. We went to explore our Christmas garden, it was amazing. Our class want to say a massive thank you to Ms Stones and team for their enormous efforts to bring Christmas cheer to our school. We also started to paint and decorate our Christmas selfie frames that Ms Stones kindly provided the idea and materials for. We were very lucky girls this week, we were treated to hot chocolate and cookies. Afterwards, full of chocolate and cookie energy, we danced our socks off to some Christmas tunes. Plenty of Christmas cheer floating about here in 3rd Class!! Bring on Christmas 2020! Our very talented artist Weronika Dolinska created a beautiful piece of Artwork which can be seen below. We wore our county colours with pride in support of our Deise boys. Deise Abú!!

We’ve been studying data in Maths this week and had lots of fun tallying our favourite hobbies and recording them on a pictogram.

We are so excited for The Late Late Toy show this year. We designed our own posters for the programme keeping the ‘Roald Dahl’ theme in mind. We are very excited for the Christmas activities in the weeks ahead.
Science Week…
We had so much fun programming our ‘Edison’ robots. We experimented with their reactions to sound, objects, colour and light. Lots of budding IT whizz kids here in 3rd Class.

Hard at Work…

We really enjoyed learning about Claude Monet, we created some beautiful pieces of art inspired by his famous painting ‘Water Lillies’.

We really enjoyed reading Greek myths, acting them out and designing our own Greek pots.

We also enjoyed using our imaginations and using it in practising our narrative writing skills.

We enjoy singing and having fun with our class every day.
