Science Week - Designer Minds!
3rd class really enjoyed a hands on workshop facilitated by scientists from Designer Minds on Friday. Pupils explored good and bad bacteria and examined them using microscopes. Each child even took home their own individual agar plate!
We had great fun preparing for Halloween in rang a trí. We explored the traditional Bairín Breac and completed procedural writing recipes... Some lucky boys and girls even found the ring! We created Pumpkin Pinch Pots using clay and we looked really scary during our Spooky Stroll to School. Happy Halloween everyone!
Rang a trí has got talent!
Thanks to Tom for performing his new song and showing us his guitar skills!
Pupils enjoyed exploring the stone age in recent History lessons. We then use the Stone Age as inspiration for our Art activity. Pupils used cave art and carvings as inspiration. Pupil lay on the ground while creating their masterpieces! We had so much fun!
World Mental Health Day
Pupils in rang a trí discussed the importance of minding our Mental Health, while celebrating World Mental Health Day. We relaxed during a mindfulness session, created mindful art and had mindful Obair Bhaile.
Maths Week Fun!
We are having great fun exploring maths during maths week! We played maths games, created our own graphs and carried out a maths trail in our local environment.
Who knew Science experiments could be so tasty! We carried out a STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) activity based on construction. We used marshmallows as our building blocks and used melted chocolate as our glue. We designed and created the structures while working in groups. The final products ranged from hotels, swimming pools and soccer stadiums.
Budding Artists in Rang a Trí!
Pupils have been showing off their artist skills in September. Pupils have created beautiful artwork based on habitats, pirate maps and exploring colour creating colour wheels.
We are really enjoying learning to play the tin whistle with our music tutor Conor Arkins. This week are learning "Hot Cross Buns".
We love developing our hurling skills with Timmy from Inniscarra G.A.A.
