When we came back in January after our Christmas holidays we began learning all about the weather because of all of the flooding that occurred over the Christmas. We learnt all about the different types of weather that occur in different countries. We compared the climates of Norway and Egypt. We then made our very own windsocks to tell us which direction the wind was blowing. We made our own relief prints on our windsocks and they look beautiful hanging in our classroom
We have also been learning all about the Vikings and we have had lots of fun researching different topics about them such as; settlements, ships and where they came from.
We were also really busy getting ready for the Wicklow Schools GAA Championships which were held in Loughlinstown. Many thanks to Paddy for all of the training sessions beforehand and to Ms. Olson for coming with us on the day. We had a great time and played matches against lots of other schools.
We also had a fun art lesson with some people from 6th class. We used marbling inks to create cool out of the window art. We also finished off our clay pots too!
In maths we have been learning how to multiply, divide and all about decimals. We have also made huge improvements in our daily scores which is GREAT!
That’s all for now,
3rd class 😀
