River Walk in 3rd Class

3rd Class have recently been learning all about rivers so  last Wednesday we went on a walk to observe streams and rivers in our community.

We looked at the stream that flows through the IT and which often floods the field at the bottom of Forthill.

Here are a few pictures of our nature walk.

The Bumblence or “Children’s Ambulance” visited the school and the 6th class pupils were allowed to view inside the ambulance and learn about the service that is provided by the Bumblence for sick children travelling to and from hospitals in Ireland…for more information check out the Bumblence website.

Magnets in 3rd Class

3rd Class are having great fun learning about magnets.

We discovered that there are lots of items in our classroom which are attracted to magnets and that there are magnets in some toys.

We also learned how to make a compass.

It was great fun.
