Building Bridges in Third Class

 

 Third class have been busy learning about bridges. First we looked at pictures of famous bridges around the world, and read information about four different types of bridges. Each group was provided with materials such as straws, lollipop sticks, card, string and sticky tape. The groups worked together to create bridges with the materials provided. 

Finally, the children brought in recyclable materials from home. In groups, they built bridges and painted them when they were finished. They turned out very well!

Grandparents Day!

We had a great day on the 30th of January when we celebrated Grandparents Day. Some of the children's grandparents came to visit our classroom and told us how different school was when they were young.  We really enjoyed the day! Thank you to all the grandparents who came to visit.

Tíortha na hEorpa - European Countries

 Rinneamar go léir tionscnaimh ar tír Eorpach. Rinne gach duine cur i láthair. Le linn na cur i láthair, bhí an rang ag scríobh síos na firicí is tábhachtaí. Bhí tráth na gceist againn théis na cur i láthair go léir, agus fuair gach bord na ceisteanna uilig i gceart! Bhí gach duine ag éisteacht lena chéile agus ag foghlam faoi na tíortha difriúla. Bhí na tionscnaimh go léir an-daite!

Everyone in Third Class completed a project on a European Country. The projects were lovely and all of the children worked very hard on them. Everyone presented their project to the class, while the rest of the class wrote down the important facts. We had a table quiz about the European countries the children did their projects on after, and every group got all of the questions right! Everyone was listening and learning from each other.

Emily brought cookies from the Netherlands to share with the class!  

Seachtain na hEolaíochta - Science Week

I rith Seachtain na hEolaíochta, rinneamar taispeántas Eolaíochta le haghaidh na Ranganna Naíonáin. Bhí Rang a Trí go hiontach ag miniú agus ag taispeáint a gcuid turgnaimh do na páistí sna Naíonáin. 

As part of science week, we also demonstrated some science experiments for the Infant Classes! Third Class showed and explained their science experiments very well to Junior and Senior Infants. 

 

Bricks 4 Kidz - Science Week / Seachtain na hEolaíochta i Rang a Trí

Tháinig Bricks 4 Kidz ar cuairt chuig Rang a Trí inniu le haghaidh Seachtain na hEolaíochta. Bhain muid sult as a bheith ag foghlaim faoi héileacaptair, agus bhí deis againn iad a thógáil le LEGO chomh maith. Tar éis iad a thógáil, cheangail muid mótar leo agus bhog na rothlóir!

Bricks 4 Kidz visited Rang a Trí today for Science Week. We had so much fun learning how helicopters work, and we even had the chance to build our own with LEGO by following the instructions. Once we built the helicopter, we attached a motor and this made the rotors move!

Here are some pictures of us with our  helicopters!

Skip Hop!

Third Class had a lovely day when Skip Hop came to the school. We learned new skipping techniques and practiced ones we knew already. It was so much fun!
