Our final two weeks in 3rd Class! 

We have had some great fun over the last two weeks, we've been to the library, used old cardboard to construct impressive carnivals, completed messy science experiments, had Teddy's ice cream, visited the park, watched Toy Story 4 and enjoyed a fun sports day!

Finding time in our busy day to play! 


Ballroom Dancing. 

We have spent the last six weeks exploring ballroom dancing. It has been so much fun. Congratulations to all the children for giving it a go! 

Reader in Residence

We have been so lucky to have worked with Ruth, our reader in residence, over the last few weeks. We met Ruth in the Ilac Library on Wednesday. she introduced us to a new author, Patricia Forde and showed us how to find the books we are interested in, in the library. We are looking forward to going back to the library next week. 

Parent Afternoon

Thank you to all the parents who came to hear about all the work we have been doing in third class. We really enjoyed showing you our classroom and performing our songs and poems for you all! We can't wait to do it all again for you soon.

We have enjoyed learning all about shape and space through these fun maths stations.

School Tour, 11 June 

Causey Farm


We are taking part in an initiative from the National College of Ireland, Mayor St., for schools in the local area. Parents and volunteers come in on Thursdays to play Monopoly with us. We learn so much when we are playing, like counting money, finding change and problem solving. Thanks to all the volunteers and parents!

GAA Skills

Mark from St Brendan's GAA Club, Grangegorman has been visiting our class to teach us some GAA skills and we have enjoyed it so much.

Ballroom Dancing

We have been loving our ballroom dancing classes with Angie, our wonderful instructor. We have danced the cha cha, the waltz and the tango!

Our Student Teacher

We were lucky enough to have Ms Fitzpatrick, a student teacher, work with us for four weeks over March and April. We learnt so much and particularly enjoyed learning all about space. Thank you Ms Fitzpatrick!

Science for Fun

Thanks to Ms Connolly our HSCL for organising Science for Fun and for the wonderful parents and 6th Class pupils who came to help us. We had great fun and learnt lots about floating and sinking, light and colours, and mixing materials.

Seachtain na Gaeilge

What a seachtain we had! We celebrated all things Irish this week and made an extra effort to bí ag caint as Gaeilge! Bhí muid ag canadh, ag damhsa agus bhí spraoi againn freisin.

Here are some pictiúir from the week.

Digital Learning

We are so lucky to have a full set of tablets available to us in 3rd Class. Here are some of the activities we've been taking part in using our tablets to help us.
