Pancake Tuesday!

4th class (with some visitors from 1st) had a great Pancake Tuesday 😍 We learned the other name for Pancake/Shrove Tuesday and we also discovered the reasons why pancakes are eaten on the day before Lent begins. We discussed what promises we might make for Lent and of course had some tasty pancakes!!5F72E922-A28F-416F-AD30-AEF1B60D43AC 3ACEF3DF-75B8-4584-9A1F-25BFD4ED0463 977D5EA4-D8E0-4700-9301-04110DCA1107 6ABB2775-4B2E-4228-9890-6BD04477027A A1B65798-2943-4265-B8B8-B0193CE06F46 1432D3B9-6DB5-4931-8350-3C90F9598688

Big and Little Readers

The boys and girls in 4th class have been working extremely hard writing narrative stories. As a special treat, we read our stories to Ms. McKelvey’s Senior Infants. The boys and girls really enjoyed sharing their hard work. Some of the boys and girls in Senior Infants even showed some of their reading to their new friends in 4th class!
Well Done everyone! F7F94C89-8F2A-4E05-A588-12C9A5A72577 A291DBBF-2BF4-43C3-8A88-96F3A64E20B6 9DAEE013-AF92-4C81-8462-F2364DA6A39D 24871326-0EAC-4DDB-8CF9-810204628231 7A7FC53D-38AA-4461-BBD2-E38068EA1DB9 65AA4A1F-4440-47BE-8689-8964640936FE 1E5C173B-0F3A-4376-B819-B6076519BB36 4E45C0EA-FF4F-4B37-8096-F7A0BDB00332 DE7F3D10-D736-483D-8249-E1AEE3A48686

4th Class Projects

The boys and girls in 4th class have had a busy start to the year.  We learned about Dublin long ago, noting the similarities and differences to Dublin today. We worked in groups to create excellent projects all about Dublin. We also explored how the breathing system works and made our own set of lungs! Have a look at some of our hard work.

International Women’s Day

What an incredible event Miss Baileys Class held today for International Womens Day. All the children researched and wrote about different famous women in history. The children also created dinner plates and re created the famous ‘Dinner Party installation art work by feminist artist Judy Chicago. The parents were invited to attend and the children spoke and answered questions about their famous  women. What a celebration!

Making parachutes

IMAG0321 IMAG0322 IMAG0326 IMAG0328 IMAG0331 IMAG0333 IMAG2561

Ms Harte Hayes did some amazing science lessons with us. We learned all about forces and how they affect us. We saw how astronauts use parachutes to land safely on earth.

Then we worked in teams to create the best parachute for a toy teddy using various materials.
We tested our creations by standing on the table and letting them float to the ground. The best parachute floated the slowest to the ground so out teddies had a soft landing.

Fourth Class Girl Qualifies for CTYI

 

Congratulations Brooke

Congratulations to Brooke in 4th Class who has qualified for DCU’s CTYI (Centre for Talented Youth) programme! This is a huge achievement for a ten year old! Most people don’t go to university and take courses until they’re nearly 20! We are all so proud of Brooke! Competition is fierce but Brooke kept her focus through the grueling 2 hour exam!

At CTYI  the courses are in topics not usually covered in the primary curriculum e.g. Astronomy, App making, Chemistry, Codes and Ciphers, Experimental Physics, Chinese, Strategy and Games, Novel and Play Writing, Forensic Science, The World of Harry Potter, Art Design. We can’t wait for her to report back to us all here in fourth!!!

Brooke is the first person in 4th to be accepted onto the programme, just like Katherine Gobels was the first to send a man into space using maths!
