Love is in the air!! Happy Valentines Day everyone from all in 4th class! 🙂

Our writing genre this month was poetry. We have been looking at various types of poetry such as list, sense, Haiku and Cinquain poems. We completed senses poems regarding our grandparents for Grandparents day. We also completed our own individual list poems regarding what we are good at and what some of our interests are. Have a look at some of our amazing work above! :):)

Since coming back to school in the new year we have been looking at various 2D and 3D shapes. We had lots of fun going on shape hunts around the classroom and getting to construct the various 2D and 3D shapes.

We have also started to look at area and how to find the surface area of different objects. We used our math’s copies and whiteboards to determine the surface area of our classroom tables.

Irish storytelling 🙂

On Wednesday the 27th of November we had the opportunity to listen to a storyteller from Co. Dublin. The stories were myths and legends that were told in both english and irish. They were really fun to listen to and we were all on the edge of our seats waiting to see what happened next!!

Science fun in the courthouse!!!

On Friday the 22nd of November we got the chance to go to the local courthouse to listen to Dr Ken talk all things Science. He completed lots of fun experiments to show how global warming can effect our planet. This talk was very informative and we left with lots of new information in our brains on how we can help the planet!!!

Science fun in the Library.

On Wednesday the 20th of November we were invited to the local Library in Clones to take part in various science experiments. During this presentation we got the chance to make our own mystical, magic potions. While doing this we learned about how red cabbage is an acid indicator that can be used to test various other chemicals. We mixed red cabbage juice in small beakers and we mixed this juice with three different substances-X,Y,Z. Upon mixing this die with the substances we were able to determine what they were by the colour that they changed. Acid substance (vinegar) turned pink. Base subatance (bread soda) turned blue and our neutral substance (water) turned purple!!! This was so amazing to watch and it was also an added benefit that we were part of the process too!! :):) Have a look below at all the fun we had!!
