Ms Herron-Rice teaches 4th Class in Room 12.
Welcome back to all our amazing students in Fourth Class! Five new children joined our class- Sarah, Adam, Dían, Demarco and Natalia, we are delighted to have them in our class. We were super sad to say goodbye to Shiva and Julie who both moved house over the summer. Ms Herron-Rice is our teacher again this year and she has been keeping us very busy in September- here are some of the things we’ve been up to!
In Geography we have been learning all about Space; we really enjoyed learning about the planets and the sun. In art, we made stained glass Earths, designed a space scene using pastels and made papier mache planets- they took a lot of work but we are proud of how they turned out!
In SPHE, we were learning about ourselves and our identities. We used mirrors to help us draw pictures of what we look like now and then we imagined what our lives would be like in ten years time and illustrated our ideas. We think they look great!
In Gaeilge, we learned about Mé Féin and we had great fun doing role plays during Irish lessons.
We learned about the skeleton and the lungs in science. We made 3D lungs in pairs and learned a funny skeleton dance. Ms Herron Rice showed us an old tv add from when she was young about how milk helps your bones- we thought it was very funny and so old fashioned!!
Finally! We celebrated Friendship Week during the last week of September. We organised games during yard time for the other classes and made sure everybody played fairly. We had a secret friend for the week and tried to do nice things for them. We learned some songs about friendship and enjoyed singing them each day. Finally, we looked at the qualities that make a good friend and made this lovely display.
We can’t wait to see what we get up to during October!
