Welcome Back 3rd Class !

Welcome Back 3rd Class !

It has been a wonderful beginning to Third Class! We have had lots of fun while learning and are looking forward to lots more fun activities throughout the year.

We have a new member of our class Jun Qi (Jacob) who has settled in extremely well.

So far, we have had three birthdays Oisin, Tom, and Matthew K all turned 9 years of age throughout September.

We started our year off as we mean to go on with the “Daily Mile” run/walk. Every morning we joined the rest of the school and have been running and walking around the school campus starting at 8.45. It’s great to see all the students chatting with their friends and getting some early morning exercise before school. It's a fantastic way to start the day.

In the classroom, there is a reading area for the students to sit and relax with a good book. Quite a few members of the class have been enjoying taking their books here for a chill and a read.

In art and in SPHE, students reflected upon their inner selves with our “My Inner-self and outer-self-portrait art activity”. Each student selected a variety of markers, crayons, or coloured pencils for this activity to promote an appreciation of individuality. We started by drawing the physical face on one side of a blank face. Then on the other side of the face, we drew our hobbies, thoughts, and emotions. The results are amazing and are displayed on the wall outside our classroom. In Maths, we are using concrete materials to solve Maths problems and calculations.

This month have been reading Eoin Colfer's "The Legend of Spud Murphy" as a class reading book. It’s a funny book and one we would highly recommend.

While we have this lovely weather, we have been taking the opportunity to get outdoors and venture around the woods, collecting conkers and practicing skipping.

Till next time
