This week we looked at the skeleton and muscles as part of science. We actively put our muscles to the test with different exercises.
Ms. Lowe's class enjoyed being challenged by games. However the matchstick puzzle proved too much of a challenge for a Friday afternoon. Can you solve the puzzle? Turn the donkey by moving only 1 matchstick.
On Thursday 11th October, 3rd class were very lucky to be led through an hour of code by Dave and Éanna from SAP. Ms. Lowe's class worked in pairs and created a game of catch the ghost..... Just in time for Halloween!! We really enjoyed coding and can't wait to do it again. Thanks again to Dave and Éanna.
Ms. Lowe's class worked on identifying what we need for healthy living in science. As part of this we looked at the food pyramid and even made our own one. We also kept a food journal for a week and created healthy meals in art. It's hard not to feel hungry surrounded by all this delicious food!
n Thursday 4th October third class enjoyed a geology and mapping workshop as part of the Heritage in Schools Scheme. With the guidance of an expert, we had hands on experience identifying the different types of rocks we were told about. We also got to see fossils and even a Trilobite which is an extinct marine creature. Ms. Lowe's class thought it looked like a woodlouse! After our work in the classroom the classes worked outside developing their mapping skills. We focused on the garden. The classes helped to identify the types of trees and then went in search of other elements of nature. We really enjoyed our workshop especially learning outside in the garden.
