Everyone is welcome to Ms. Kelly's fourth class blog. We are really looking forward to lots of learning and fun as the year passes. We've even started our year off with some guitar lessons with Don. Stay tuned to our blog to see what we get up to this year!
Water, water everywhere and the children of 4th class did not care. From the minute we arrived to Clara Lara, children were engaged in water activities from water slides to boating. Our photos show the great day we had....
Some video clips from our day:
This week, nine sessions of guitar lessons, culminated in a most entertaining performance by the children of fourth class. They strummed, sang and danced to entertain their parents and other classes. They did their teachers, including Mr. Nea their guitar instructor, very proud. Special thanks to the PTA for funding the lessons.
As part of Science Week we investigated materials and how they change. We separated cream into a solid (butter) and liquid (buttermilk) by shaking it in a different containers. The single cream worked best for us in the glass jar. We enjoyed our butter on crackers.
We had great fun celebrating Science Week!
Fourth class were extremely busy today celebrating one of our favourite authors - Roald Dahl. To mark this special day, we completed a team quiz on the author. We also picked our favourite book written by Roald Dahl and in groups drew a picture to represent the book cover.
We really enjoyed being a part of this special day!
Today, the children of both fourth and fifth class had their school tour. They went to Rathbeggan Lakes, in Dunshaughlin, Co. Meath. From the moment we got on the bus, everyone's excitement took over and we knew we had an excellent day in store. The children were able to complete a wide range of activities. They completed a heritage walk which focused on the Stone Age. The children were able to visit Baileys & Moates as well as Crannógs which brought what we have learnt in History to real life. The children were also given the opportunity to go on the paddles boats on the lakes and try and keep their balance in the water rollers. After lunch we visited the playground, pet farm and an array of bouncy castles. Its safe to say we all really enjoyed our day!
The children of fourth class participated in guitar lessons for the past ten weeks. Below are the videos which the excellent performance they did for their families and classmates. They played guitar and percussion instruments, sang and dance. We know that everyone in the audience thoroughly enjoyed the performance.
