3rd Class

Third class presented assembly this week. The theme of our assembly was Teamwork. Each child drew a picture representing what teamwork means to them and read out sentences about the importance of teamwork to the rest of the school. 

I’m delighted to say that we have lots of poets in Third class! We wrote a poem together about being in school and working together as a team. The title of the poem is ‘Our School Poem’. Ms. Maloney is so impressed that she said it will be framed and hung at the school entrance.

Have a lovely weekend.


Third class enjoyed using the IPads this week.  We are doing lots of creative activities in Third class. We are working on ‘Crazy Hair’ art using lots of different line patterns and material.  It is a work in progress at the moment. We cannot wait to show you the finished results next week! 

Have a lovely weekend.Ms.O’Brien

Third class visited the CNS Sensory Garden in our school grounds. We used our sense of smell, sight and touch to identify various herbs such as Rosemary, Mint, Thyme and Lemon Balm.  

The pupils are working on a project which they will present at Assembly at the end of this month. They are keeping it as a surprise! Watch this space! 

Enjoy your weekend.

Third class have had a busy week. The pupils have formed a book club. When a pupil has finished reading a book, they will be encouraged to share their thoughts on the book. They will be asked to give a mark out of ten and whether they would recommend the book to others. The pupils have made their own booklet in which they will record the books that they have read over the course of the term. This will encourage pupils to have a positive attitude towards reading. Please ensure that your child has a book in their schoolbag for D.E.A.R (Drop Everything And Read). 

We were learning about facts regarding birds of Ireland this week and the pupils drew pictures and labelled them.  

We listened to the parable of The Good Samaritan and asked ourselves the question, ‘how can I be a Good Samaritan at home, in class and in the playground?’  

We finished our lovely flowers which have brightened up our classroom. We are painting autumnal scenes, capturing all the colours that we now see in parks and gardens. 

Have a lovely weekend.

I was delighted to meet all of the lovely boys and girls in Third class on Tuesday. We spent time discussing classroom rules and any changes in routine now that we are in the senior end of the building. This brought us onto using the stairs and we made a list of important steps to remember when doing so.

The pupils have spent time learning all about Louis Braille. They wrote their names using a coding system. They wrote a fact file about Louis Braille and discussed how Louis achieved his goals with great determination.

Third class made their own “Getting To Know Me” book. Each child completed a worksheet about themselves and we have compiled a book which is on display in the classroom.

The children have been enjoying singing along with the flute, revising maths and Irish.  We are working on our art display and have started making flowers using crepe paper.

P.E will take place on Thursday.

Have a lovely weekend.
