In May our school won our 6th Green Flag – ‘Global Citizenship Litter and Waste’. A girl from 6th and a boy from 3rd who are on the Green School Committee got chosen to go to Claremorris to collect the flag. They had a great day out.
At the end of June our class had a presentation of reading certs which we won by doing library quizzes. We have enjoyed reading books in the library this year.
We worked on SALF folders during the year in 3rd class. SALF means – Self Assessment Learning Folder. During the year we put some of our best work into the folders to show to everyone. We had fun working in groups and looking at all the folders. We have pictures here of our class showing some lovely work which we are very proud of.
On Pancake Tuesday 3rd Class had a great time making pancakes.
First we had to write down the ingredients and the method. Then we had to measure and weigh our ingredients.
We cooked the mixture on the pan. We added our favourite toppings (chocolate spread and banana).
Yesterday, 3rd class visited the old St Edwards NS, otherwise known as ‘The Northside’.
We enjoyed seeing the model of the area in 1896 and the old classroom. We visited the old fort where Forthill gets it’s name from, and we had a look at the Men’s garden.
We would like to say thank you to Johnny Stanford and John Joe Rooney for all their lovely stories about the history of the area and the old fort.
3rd Class, along with 1st & 2nd classes, have started hurling training on Fridays for 10 weeks.
We are really enjoying it.
Roald Dahl Day takes place every year on 13 September, on the birthday of the World’s No. 1 Storyteller.
This year, 3rd Class in St Edward’s N.S. celebrated this special day by either dressing up as their favourite character from a book by Roald Dahl or by bringing in their favourite Roald Dahl story and discussing it with the class.
‘Matilda’ was a popular choice to dress up as for the girls and we also had the queen from ‘The BFG’ . The boys dressed up as George from ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’, ‘Matilda’s nasty father and Mr Twit from ‘The Twits’ .
We had great fun chatting about our favourite books also.
