Fantastic February

The children of 3rd class have been hard at work this February on a number of various projects and activities.

MUSIC: The children kicked off this month in fantastic fashion. 3rd class performed at the first assembly this month. The children combined their musical performance of The Script’s Hall of Fame with a speech on Martin Luther King.

Our in-class SESE project for this month focused on The Islands of Irelands. The children explored the islands using google earth to get a full 3D experience of the various Islands of Ireland. We also explored in detail life on the Áran Islands. The children then broke into pairs and selected an island of their choice. They then researched the island using the school ipads and created wonderful colourful posters using the research gathered.

The results were fantastic. The islands chosen ranged from big islands like Achill Island to smaller no habitual islands like the Saltee Islands.

ART: As it was Valentines the children created some wonderful POP ART Valentines Cards. Having looked at the work of Romero Britto, the Brazlian Artist, the children took inspiration from his work and created the wonderful cards you see below.

Gaeilge: Tá na páistí ag foghlaim dán nua An Leprechaun Amaideach. Beidh siad ag déanamh dán le haghaidh  Seachtaine Na Gaeilge an seachtain seo chugainn os comhair na scoile go léir. Beidh siad thar barr ar an lá.

The chidlren are also currently working on two more projects, one in History and one for International Women’s Day. These projects will be showcased in our March Post.
