3rd and 4th class made the trip to St. Joseph’s today, to perform some songs for a very special audience. They have been working very hard, after choosing some amazing songs to perform. They were so brilliant, they even had some of the residents up dancing! ‘Sweet Caroline’ was a crowd favourite, which was accompanied by Joshua and Eoin on their guitars.
We had some special entertainment today during our lunch break. The boys are practicing very hard for our performance in St. Joseph’s and decided to have their own ‘busking’ session during lunch. They were very popular judging by the amount of Monopoly money they received !!
We are very excited to be singing for all the residents in St. Joseph’s Hospital. 4th class came up with some brilliant suggestions of songs to sing. We are practicing some of these songs, in the hope to put some smiles on the residents faces!
Here are the links to the songs we will be singing so they can be practiced at home. Although we don’t need to know these by heart, we do want to be confident when singing them!
What a day! We had so much fun down in St. Anne’s park for our day of forest school. We began the day with a game of manhunt, followed by a very competitive game of capture the flag – 4th class vs teachers! Unfortunately for the teachers, 4th class won. Maybe the teachers will have better luck next time!
We then worked hard (and got very mucky) at creating some dens for small animals. 4th class blew me away with their creativity. We had some dens which had football pitches, hot tubs and garages. We even had one den that was on the market for 1.5 million acorns!
Following this, we were hard hard at work at some nature maths and we created some art pieces inspired by Andy Goldsworthy. To finish off our day we did some ‘puddle jumping’ and spent some time in the playground.
For the past month, we have been learning all about habitats. 4th class worked really hard on some projects and different art activities. They blew me away with their creativity! Take a look at some of these below.
We have gotten stuck into our concert for 2022 and 3rd and 4th class will proudly be presenting our own production of Bah Humbug. We will be working very hard for the next few weeks and as part of our homework we will be working on our songs. Here are the songs and our lyrics are in our homework folders. Happy singing !
Over the past week, 4th class have been participating in a number of maths activities and challenges to mark Maths Week 2022. They completed many problem solving activities, number of the day challenges and a maths trail, but I think the biggest hit was the escape room challenge! The children were trapped inside a ‘haunted’ house and they had to work together completing different maths challenges to escape. Luckily, everyone escaped and nobody was trapped inside!
