We are learning about the counties of Ireland in Geography this month so it was great to test our knowledge using IPads this week. We also tested our skills in identifying countries of Europe and their capital cities.
Today Josephine told us the story of the First Christmas during Godly Play. We are very grateful to have Josephine visit us on regular basis and we really enjoy her stories.
We were tested today on our Hand Hygiene by Barbara from the HSE. Barbara taught us the proper hand washing technique and she told us how easily germs are spread by our hands. Thank you to Ben's mum Barbara for taking the time to visit us.
Lourdes Murphy joined us today to teach us a new hip hop dance. It is wonderful to experience different forms of exercise during our PE lessons.
This week, we participated in Science week by learning more about occupations that use Science every day. We learned about the different areas of Science. In groups, we tested the effects of sound waves on popcorn, we made gloop using cornflour and we made a lava lamp which showed how oil and water don't mix. Ben and Joe also showed us some electrical circuits.
This month Jospehine has told us the story of Jonah and the Whale and she has taught us about the Church Year. We look forward to hearing the story of the First Christmas in December.
What a lovely way to spend a Friday afternoon! Aisling taught us some yoga poses and we did a sun salutation. To finish, we engaged in a guided relaxation activity. We felt very relaxed after it - Thank you Aisling!
Well done to all of our 4th class boys and girls who played in GAA blitzes over the past two weeks. Mr. Gantley complimented all of those playing on their behaviour and great performance in every match!
