Primary 3/4, Miss Naan

Hello from the pupils in Primary 3/4!


Making Roman Biscuits

Today the children worked in small groups to bake their own Roman biscuits. We have been exploring food and life in ancient Roman times and the children enjoyed baking and tasting their own biscuits. We then celebrated the last week of school with a tea party and tasted our creations.


Our Amazing Volcanoes

Our topic this term has been 'The Romans.' This week we have been exploring the lost city of Pompeii and the impact of Vesuvius. During Art and World Around Us lessons we created our own Papier-mâché volcanoes in pairs. We used vinegar and baking soda to 'erupt' our volcanoes. We loved watching the results!



Exploring Compass Directions

We have enjoyed exploring compass directions outdoors in Numeracy this week. Children have been exploring the eight points on a compass and how to make quarter, half and whole turns. We worked in pairs to draw our own compasses using chalk in the playground and practiced turning our bodies in clockwise and anti-clockwise movements. Fantastic work everyone!



St. Patrick's Day 2024

 We were grinning in green today to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in P3/4! Children wore green to school  and enjoyed making beautiful spiral rainbows during art.

The children dazzled us with their amazing gifts and talents during a whole school assembly. We listened to other pupils reading their Feis poems, playing instruments, reciting poems and singing St. Patrick's Day songs.

The boys and girls in P3/4 sang a special St. Patrick's Day version of our morning song 'Rise and Shine' with lovely actions they created themselves.




World Book Day 2024

 We celebrated World Book Day in P3/4 by wearing our fantastic book character costumes to school! We enjoyed a costume parade at assembly with the whole school and brought in our own book character toilet roll holders to show our friends.

We finished our celebrations with a scavenger hunt outdoors where we worked in small groups to find clues and solve riddles about 'mystery' books. You can spot us hunting for clues in the picture below!






Celebrating Odd Sock Day 2024



Posting our Santa Letters

 We had a very exciting day in P3/4 as we walked down to the postbox to post our letters to Santa!


Halloween 2023

We had some very scary visitors in the P3/4 classroom today as everyone arrived in their spooky Halloween costumes! We enjoyed a costume parade with the whole school in the hall this morning. We had lots of sweet treats at our Halloween party and ended the day with musical statutes. Happy Halloween from P3/4!!


Fun in Numeracy

 In Numeracy, we have been learning about how to use a tally to collect data and record it in a bar chart. Today, children counted the different colours of smarties they received and recorded their data. The best part was eating our smarties afterwards!!



Creating Medieval Catapults

Our topic this term is 'Dungeons and Dragons.' We have been learning about Medieval castles this week and for this activity, children worked in pairs to create their own Medieval catapults using lollipop sticks, elastic bands and milk lids. We then tested our catapults to see how far they could make a pompom fly across the playground. Everyone enjoyed this experiment!



Tasting Dragon Fruit

 In the novel we have been reading, 'The Boy who Grew Dragons,' a little boy discovers that dragons have hatched from his dragon fruits! In World Around Us we tasted dragon fruit and used our five senses to describe what it looked, smelled, sounded, tasted and felt like. We had some fans and some harsh critics!
