Miss Feighery

Hello everyone and welcome to our 3rd Class page!
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!
