This week in 3rd Class our theme is Lighthouses. The children wrote beautiful sound poems based on the noises they would imagine hearing in a Lighthouse.

They sang the song “Row, Row, Row your Boat” creating a four beat body percussion pattern and performed it in canon. They clicked and tapped as they sang and really enjoyed it.

Bhí said ag caint as Gaeilge faoin scéal “An Trá” agus thaitin sé go mór leo.

They learned about Electrical Safety and created circuits in science to determine how the light bulb works and carried out various experiments to generate static electricity. The children loved all of these experiments and were very actively engaged.

The children will begin constructing their lighthouses tomorrow and will continue to work on their projects over the next few weeks.
