300 Years of education in the heart of Castleknock village (1720 – 2020)
Take a look at some of the different things Fourth Class have been doing over the past few weeks. They have made their own grass heads. You can check out their progress in the photos below. We also had a trip to see the deer statue in Castleknock. Fourth Class got medals for their amazing projects! They also had some fun working in the sun and playing games on the green.
Fourth class had great fun doing lots of different activities on the green. There were races, games, skipping and lots more fun activities!
Fourth Class enjoyed doing Drama, Maths and D.E.A.R time in the sunshine on Thursday. They also had lots of fun experimenting with magnets in Science. In English, Fourth Class wrote narrative pieces using the writing process. They are looking forward to sharing their finished stories with the class next week.
Fourth class have completed the Junior Achievement programme ‘It’s my Business’ over the past 6 weeks. We really enjoyed coming up with creative, innovative products and pitching them. In Art, we collaboratively recreated a piece of artwork by Vincent Van Gogh. We also enjoyed creating and learning about 3D shapes in Maths.
‘Check out these photos from Fourth Class this week. We reached our target number of ‘dojo points’ and earned a class party on Thursday. We had lots of fun being active this week for ‘Active Week’ too. We are focusing on sentence structure in Irish and making lots of ‘abairtí iontacha’. We completed our third session of the Junior Achievement Programme on Wednesday. Fourth Class came up with incredible innovative ideas for new products.’
Check out these photos of Fourth Class this week. We learnt about ‘idioms’ in English. We also started reading the novel ‘The Demon Headmaster’. In Science we did a ‘Colour Changing Carnations’ experiment. It was lots of fun! On Thursday we did our Maths work outside in the sun. We are working really hard.
This week in Fourth Class we enjoyed an online Safety workshop with Barnardos. We learnt how to create strong passwords and many other ways to keep safe online. We also started the Junior Achievement programme this week. During our first session we learnt all about entrepreneurs. We are really looking forward to coming up with our own business ideas as we continue the programme.
