Painted Lady Butterflies
3rd class are very excited to announced that the Painted Lady butterflies have hatched! We enjoyed watching them develop and we learned so much about the lifecycle of the butterfly. They are now living the rest of their lives in our school garden.
3rd class made Hapa Zome art- a Japanese style of art that involves pressing leaves and flowers on cloth and smashing them to make a symmetrical pattern. The result is a delicate image that is absolutely beautiful!
We are very excited to announce that our caterpillars have arrived! We now are watching, observing and waiting for each caterpillar to form a chrysalis.

Rainforest Layer Project
3rd class have been working hard on our Rainforest Projects. They are now experts on the layers of the rainforest and the animals that live in each layer.
The Emergent Layer is at the top of the rainforest. The Bird Eating Tarantula lives in this layer.
The Canopy Layer is next. The sloth lives in this layer.
The Understory is the next layer of the rainforest. The anaconda lives in this layer.
At the bottom of the rainforest is the Forest Floor layer. The jaguar lives here.
The Hugh Lane Gallery
Ms. Kildee's 3rd class were delighted to participate in the Zooom@HughLane programme. We looked at art, discussed art and made some art of our own.
We are lucky to have the Hugh Lane Gallery so near to our school!
3rd class are working on group projects and we're really excited about how they're going to turn out. Group projects are great for showing what we've learned about a topic, practicing cooperation and sharing responsibility, and this class are experts at all those skills. Stay tuned for the completed projects!
3rd class are learning all about the rainforest! We've learned about the plants and animals that live there, the 4 layers and the damage that has been done to the rainforest.
We're also collecting things we see everyday that grow in the rainforest. Check out our display!
