Ms Mckiernan taught us to draw our facial features and how to mix colours to make skin colour. Here are some of our finished self portraits. See can you guess who is who. ? 😊
3rd and 4th class, together with their teacher Ms McKiernan are delighted to be back at school and excited to see what the year holds. We will try and keep our blog updated about events, news and projects we are working on in class. Here are some portraits of the awesome students in 3rd and 4th class this year. Have a great year everyone!
We had a very busy December in Scoil Mhuire. I hope you all enjoyed our Christmas show. We also managed to get lots of art done in December. Here are some pictures of the displays in the hallway.
We made snowglobes by painting paper plates blue and decorating them with fake snow and glitter and then everyone stuck in their own picture. When they were finished we covered them with clingfilm and they were ready for display!
We also made our own Elfs. Everyone created their own elf body using coloured card and then stuck their own picture on the body.
As part of our study on procedural writing we wrote a procedure on how to build a snowman. Each child then created their own snowman with card and they were ready for display!
While learning about 3D shapes we used marshmallows and toothpicks to construct our own 3D shapes. The class worked together in pairs and everyone created a range of shapes including cubes, cuboids, triangular prisms and square based pyramids! It was lots of fun but the whole class found it very difficult not to eat the marshmallows!!! 🙈
Can you name any of the shapes we made?
This week Ollie has been up to more naughtiness around our classroom. We found him hanging from our projector, writing a naughty or nice list on the whiteboard! We also found him playing with playdough. On Wednesday he was feeling a bit homesick and we found him hanging out by our world map. We also caught him racing on the animals from our crib!!!
Unfortunately our fun with Ollie had to end. He left us a note and we bid him farewell when we left for our school holidays! We hope you come back again next year Ollie.
As part of our study of 2d shapes in maths, we went out into the yard to find examples of different shapes in the environment. We had loads of fun identifying and taking pictures of examples of each shape. We worked in pairs to find some very interesting examples of circles, squares, rectangles, hexagons and octagons around the school. Here are some pictures of us on our trail...
On Friday Seán brought in a lovely colourful dinosaur teddy for show and tell. Seán has had this teddy since Junior Infants and it turns out it was given to him by Mathew!!
The teddy is very precious to Seán and is a lovely keepsake to have.
Check it out below!
Ms. Heaney :)
Last Wednesday morning Third and Fourth Class got a pleasant surprise when Ms. Heaney closed the door and we discovered we had an elf on the shelf behind it!!! Well done to Brianna for spotting him first and alerting the rest of us. After much debate, we settled on the name Ollie for our elf. Each morning he is in a different place and we're having great fun trying to find him. Check back for weekly updates on Ollie's antics in 3rd and 4th class.
