English

We love reading novels in 3rd class.  The mobile library visits and we have a class library.  Sometimes we do oral book reviews and other times we write out a review.  We also keep a reading log.  Our favourite authors are Michael Morporgu, Roald Dahl and David Walliams.  We have periods of silent reading during the week.  We also learn to join our handwriting.

Maths

In third class we start to learn about multiplication and division. We really enjoy problem solving activities from the Nrich website.

Art 

We work with clay, fabric, wire and modroc, knitting, drawing ,marbling, tie dying and crafts.  Every week we experience a different material.  Sometimes a crafts person might visit us and we sit and watch them.  We love to visit exhibitions at the nearby Hunt Museum.  We’ve just been to see work by Louis Le Broquy.

P.E 

We get the opportunity to experience lots of different activities like creative dance, basketball, gaelic football, hurling and yard games.

Music

We are learning to read music in order to play the recorder.  We also love composing, singing and listening and responsing to music.

Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths

We love our STEM rotation days, Wonderful Wednesday. It makes learning really fun!

History

Everyone in our class just loves the stories from Ancient Egypt.  We love to get out of class on a local trail.  We study artefacts at the Hunt Museum and we dress up as Stone Age people.

Geography

We learn about the physical and himan environment and try our best to be environmentally aware.

An Ghaeilge

Sé mana na scoile  ná “Fás agus Foghlaim”.  Is brea linn an Ghaeilge.  Cloisfidh tú sinne ar an raideo, ag caint is ag canadh.

We have Assemblies once a month in the Halla and our parents and families are invited.

Every few weeks we make an out of school visit to the Hunt Museum, Limerick City Museum, St. Mary’s Cathedral, St. John’s Castle or Limerick College of Art and Design.

On wet days we play board games like chess and scrabble and construct with lego.
