Blog for 3rd Class

Marine Pollution

We completed our project with ‘Sea Syenergy’ recently. The class did a super job and learned a lot about the affects of marine pollution. The marine biologists visited us twice. On the second occasion, they showed us a powerpoint on whales and dolphins and will return in a few week with an aquarium for the classroom. Well done 3rd class!

Maths week

WE had great fun during Maths week recently.

Running

Well done to 3rd class on keeping up their marathon challenge. They are doing great and increasing their fitness levels day by day….!

Science experiments

We completed two science experiments recently and demonstrated them for fourth class. Fourth class also showed us their experiments. We have some budding scientists in our midst!!!

Athletics

We are progressing nicely through our fit4class athletics programme. The pupils are having great fun so far and are enjoying the games and activities involved.

Our Book Launch!

Our Book Launch!

We are so proud! It was wonderful that all our parents found the time this morning to celebrate our published books and to have a cup of tea, served by Ms Anne Moore and Ms Noreen. They even got to taste some of our teacher’s banana cake……a recipe which is a secret! This was the first day that we actually got to hold our printed books. It was soooo exciting.

Look at the art all around Third Class!

Science:More Bernoulli Stuff

Science:More Bernoulli Stuff

Lots of huffing and puffing. Why did the balloons lean inward and not outward? Fast moving curving air between the balloons caused the outer higher pressure to lean in on the balloons. Builders of skyscrapers need to remember this on windy days!!

Hopefully we can develop this tomorrow and explore the Bernoulli Theory: The ability of a liquid , gas to move around a curved object.
