In 3rd class, the children have arrived in the senior end of primary school. This brings with it the introduction of lots of fun challenges and experiences. In 3rd class, the children develop their sense of independent learning and cooperation skills. Through project work and investigations they explore interesting topics such as ancient civilisations in History, countries in Geography and the fascinating way the world works in Science. 3rd class are also introduced to multiplication in Maths for the 1st time. They develop their language and writing skills in English and Irish and enjoy a range of activities in Music, Art, PE and drama.
In 4th class, the children continue with their learning and development from 3rd class. They continue to work on their independent learning skills and their ability to work in groups to complete a project or investigation. In Maths, they solidify and develop the topics that they were introduced to in 3rd class. They further develop their reading, writing and communication skills in English and Irish. Not only do they explore similar topics to those in 3rd class, but they also explore themes such as Irish history, local history, mapping skills, habitats, and much more! 4th class continue to develop their skills in PE, Art, Music and drama through different activities last year, to ensure new fun learning experiences.
