Ms. Byrnes's Class
Welcome to Ms. Byrnes' 4th class. We have had a great September settling into 4th class. We are delighted to have Victoria C join our class and make lots of new friends.
The class are all enjoying our Tuesday swimming lessons in Coolmine pool.
In Maths, we are concentrating on tables. So far we have covered multiplying by 2,3 and 4. We are lucky enough to be part of the mathswhizz programme. The children have all completed their online test and each child are working away at their own level. There is a Friday prize for the children who work particularly hard with this. So far, Aikaterini, Sam and Nael have recieved the award.
In English, we are continuing to read the novel 'Born to Run' written by Michael Morpurgo. We are enjoying reading how the Best Mate became Brighteyes and then Paddywack. The stories of the myths of 'Princess Hase-Hime of Japan' and 'The Children of Lír' have really captured our imaginations in History. We are now learning about Nelson Mandela and are begining to work on our project.
We learned all about houses and items in our home in gaeilge. We all learned a great rap with the names of the counties of Leinster.
This class really enjoy and are very talented in art. We have created autumn leaves, aquarium and alien name art.
A trip to An Draíocht to see the ballet 'When the Moon Spun Round' was organised for 3rds, 4ths and 5th classes. The children found it very enjoyable and were amazed by the talent of the dancers and musicians.
Hope everyone has a lovely Halloween break. It was great seeing all the children in their costumes on the last day of term.
Well done to the first few 'Students of the Week' who were: Sylwester, Zoilo, Victoria C, Harry, Yassin, Hanna, Arijus and Aikaterini.
