Miss Feighery

Hello everyone and welcome to our 3rd Class page!
February is just flying by in 3rd Class. Happy Pancake Tuesday from all of us! We loved learning about Lá na bPancóg as Gaeilge and particularly enjoyed making our own pancóga with a variety of toppings.
We were busy getting into the Valentine’s Day spirit by crafting some beautiful cards using the technique of marbling. We are also enjoying our final preparations for our Peace Proms concert. In PE we are focusing on dance and the girls are loving showing off their creative side. We began learning about the Vikings in History and loved working in teams to research different elements of their lives. In Art we learned all about still life drawing and we did sketches of objects related to our hobbies. Stay tuned for more!
January has been a wonderful month in 3rd Class. We started off 2023 by making some New Year’s resolutions and creating some beautiful pieces of scratch art. We’ve been busy exploring fractions in maths and caitheamh aimsire in Irish. We loved learning all about Poland for geography and had great information from our two polish girls Kamila and Nadia. We took part in a light science experiment and even had a visit from some local firefighters. Well-being week has been the highlight of January. We’ve been loving our daily positive affirmations, mindfulness and joining up with our buddies. Zumba was great fun too!
Term One
Although November was a short month, it has been full of fun and lots of new learning here in 3rd class. Science week has been a real highlight: we joined some interesting online webinars, learned how to programme robots to follow sound and light, and even made our own butter! We have also been learning about how animals can adapt to their environment and created some beautiful wild animal silhouettes- take a look! In maths we have been working hard on multiplication and we’re really impressing Ms. Feighery with how well we learn our tables. Christmas is just around the corner and we can’t wait to see what this special month brings.
Maths week was a great success in our classroom, we loved every minute! From maths hunts to problem solving to maths games – it was busy, active and most of all fun! See the pictures below of our budding mathematicians. Last week we also enjoyed a visit from author Wayne O’ Connor who was a wonderful storyteller and had us all laughing out loud. We had our well-deserved pyjama party and created some beautiful Halloween artwork too.
October has already been a busy month in 3rd class! We have been learning about healthy eating in science and loved creating our own food pyramids using cut outs from supermarket catalogs. In Maths, we are exploring 2D shapes and their properties and even constructed our own using lollipop sticks. We are so excited for Halloween and have started some spooky art to decorate the classroom with. Last Friday we celebrated ‘Orange Day’ and came to school dressed in orange to raise money for our local Solas Centre. We are looking forward to what the rest of the month brings.
We’ve all had a great first week back to school and packed in lots of fun activities. We started with getting to know our teacher Ms. Feighery and shared some stories about ourselves and the summer holidays. We’ve been busy chatting as Gaeilge too and have learned new vocabulary and phrases. In art lessons we enjoyed mixing colours to create our beautiful colour wheel eyes. Check out the pictures below to see how they turned out!
