Our Year in 3rd Class

This year our teacher was Ms .Golden. She is the best teacher in the world. We have done so many fun things this year. Take a look at some of them below.

Our School Tour

For our 3rd class school tour we went to the I.T in Sligo to the Lets Go Camp. It was soooooo fun. We got to do lots of activities like go carting, wrecking ball, wobbly ladder, air jump, human football table and so much more. We had lots of fun. It was the best school tour ever. The whole class really enjoyed it.

Art Work

We loved art and did so much this year. I’ll try and remember as much as possible. We drew trees for the different seasons, for Halloween we made cotton bud skeletons. For Winter we made snow globes, snowflakes, sock snowmen and Christmas cards. Then for spring art we decorated Easter eggs and sunflowers. For summer we made flip flops in the sand and fathers day art.

Science

We did loads of science experiments on electricity, forces, sound, magnets and loads more things. They were so much fun.

Testing our boats to see which materials are better for floating.
Racing our cars using magnets.

Project Work

We did a lot of project work. The whole class made one on Egypt , we did one on a country of our choice, one on extreme weather, space and the Aztecs.

Summer Bucket Lists

Our Summer Bucket List is about the things we want to get done this summer. We had to pick 16 things. People wrote things like I want to learn guitar, have a sleepover, go swimming, ride a roller coaster, have a water fight, go to the beach, go on holidays and go camping. We’re going to tick them off as we do them over the summer holidays.

Kensuke’s Kingdom – Our Class Novel

Our class started a class novel called Kensuke’s Kingdom by Micheal Morpurgo.
It was about a boy whose parents were made redundant and decided to sail around the world. The boy, Micheal was thrown overboard the boat during a storm and washed up on an island but he was not alone……………………..
We also did lots of work on this novel, we did chapter summaries, character profiles, missing persons posters, messages in a bottle and even our own ending to the story!
You should definitely read it, it is a great story.

Rugby Kits for our school!

Ms. Golden ordered a poster form Aldi then the whole school collected stickers to fill the poster up. We collected over 1200 stickers and completed 4 posters. As a result we we got 4 kit bags, 16 rugby balls, 24 bottles and 4 bottle holders. We are hoping to set up a tag rugby team in the school next year.

Lets end the year with a BANG!

Ms. Golden put up a display on Friday and it said “Lets End The Year With A Bang”. So it goes like this. Ms. Golden put balloons around it and each balloon had a number on it. Each day we pop a balloon and count down the last few days of school. Inside each balloon was a fun activity for that day.
Day 8 said: “student get to swap seats for a day”
Day 7 said “students become teachers for a day”
Day 6 said “School tour”
Day 5 said “Students awards”
Day 4 said “Bottle cap mural”
Day 3 said “Sports Day”
Day 2 said “Ice-Cream”
Day 1 said “Last Day – PARTY”

School Pet

We also got school pets this year. They are turtles, 1 boy and 1 girl. The boys name is Jeff and the girls name is Rosie. They go from room to room each month. They are so cute. They were in our classroom and everybody got a change to feed them. Me and my friend got to feed them together.

So that’s some of what we got up to this year, check out our other blog posts for more updates. It has been the best year ever!
