This month in 4th Class we are learning about the topic of ‘Transport’. In celebration of Science Week, we started off the week using a K’nex STEM challenge to create a hot air balloon model! We continued the week with another STEM activity and asked the question – ‘How do parachutes work?’ Parachutes need to be able to catch air inside them so we spent some time thinking of what materials we could use for our parachutes. Then we spent time designing our parachutes. Each group received the same amount of materials and time to complete the activity. We...

We started off the month with some Autumn Art. We used autumnal paints for our colourful dot painting. They turned out so well and really brightened up the classroom! We had great fun designing and carving a pumpkin this month for Halloween and learning about the stages in which a pumpkin grows. We had a brilliant last day before the mid-term, dressing up and painting pumpkins! Happy Halloween from all of 4th Class

In 4th Class for Maths this month we have been learning about Time. We made a life size clock to help our understanding of time on an analogue clock! In Art we drew self – portraits with a twist this year as we designed our own masks! This week we had our long-awaited Bike Day! We took part in activities out in the yard and talked about bike safety. Thanks to Paddy for organising!

Last week 3rd class once again took on the STEM challenge of the week: Pringle Ringle. This was an engineering project in which students had to create a ring using only Pringles – no tape or glue allowed! The challange required a lot of patience as well as careful Pringle placement! First they had to fill in a recording sheet where they had to guess how many Pringles were in the container and how many they thought they’d need to build the ring. Next, they sketched out their plan. When they completed the task they said how many they actually used to build the ring and reflected...

Last week 3rd class had the tricky STEM challenge of designing and building a model that represented a rule that they follow at home! This included any chores they may have. They had to plan it out first, design it, make it and test that it worked. Then, make any changes to the model before sending it to me. As usual, I was blown away by their imaginative and creative ideas. Check out the pictures below to see what some of 3rd class do at home for their parents 😁 Well done 3rd class, brilliant ideas! This model explains that homework must be completed everyday at the table...
