Welcome to our class blog! Keep an eye on here to find out what we've been getting up in Third Class!
World Book Day!
There were lots of interesting characters to be seen in Ardilaun 3 this Thursday as we celebrated World Book Day! Each class in the school participated in DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) Time at the same time in the morning, and the boys lost themselves in the worlds of their books for 15 minutes. They also watched some inspirational videos of some of their favourite authors giving story writing tips, and got to work on making some bookmarks! We had a range of characters turn up for school, including lots of boys in cosy pjs and some spooky looking skeletons to name but a few! Take a look at the great costumes! Well done to Alex, Ciarán, Cillian and Lucas who won prizes for their creative costumes, and to all the boys for taking part in World Book Day!
Planes, Trains, automobiles…and much more!
As part of our topic on Transport, the boys completed projects on an area of transport that interested them. They did a super job! We all really enjoyed listening to the boys’ presentations, and seeing their wonderful work which came in a variety of formats, from colourful posters to high-tech PowerPoint presentations to home-made models and drawings. We found out lots of interesting facts about transport, and even had some giggles with some very funny transport-related jokes! A huge amount of time and effort went into these projects, and the boys should all be very proud of their work! Take a look at the boys in action!
Jingle all the way!
It was starting to look a lot like Christmas in the days leading up to the hols! The boys were busy making Christmas cards and decorations, including these cute lollipop snowmen which we used to decorate our classroom Christmas tree! We also did a Secret Santa, and the boys and I were surprised at how many boys were able to keep it secret until the very end! Well done boys!
The boys showed that they are all bright sparks during Science Week! After successfully assembling electrical circuits and achieving the “lightbulb moment”, they explored different materials to see which ones were conductors of electricity. Great fun! They also enjoyed a visit from a real Scientist, where they had to put their heads together to come up with a cure for a bee sting!
Things were looking a little spooky in Ardilaun 3 this week, with all sorts of creatures turning up for school on Thursday! The boys made some disgusting-looking eyeballs; luckily made with yummy ingredients! We may have scared some of the locals as we walked to St. Anne’s park, where there were some strange-looking soccer players running about on the astro! Well done on all the brilliant costumes! It was extremely difficult to choose, but the prizes for best costumes went to Ruadhán, Alex D, Dara F, Craig and Archie! Super effort, well done guys! Have a great Halloween!
