Fourth Class 1

Hi and welcome to 4th Class 1!

During the year you can keep up-to-date with what we are doing through our website. We hope to have lots of pictures and great work to share with you all this year!

We have all been working really hard in 4th Class since September.  We’re so lucky to have great help from Emma, Laura C and Úna N,  especially with our Maths and English. We have Guided Reading every Monday, Wednesday and Friday which helps us to practice and improve our reading.  Remember to keep reading at home and get our Reading Logs signed!

Every Tuesday we have P.E.  We play games, learn new skills and try to get really fit. Our theme for September was basketball and in October we will be doing gymnastics. We also participated in the Run across Europe event in September which was great fun!

We have loved learning about Recount and Narrative writing in English and have composed some very creative pieces of work so far!

In Gaeilge this term, we have learned about Mé Féin and Bia.  We have all been making a big effort to use Gaeilge during the day, especially on ‘Lá Gaeilge’ which takes place every Wednesday.

We have studied the Colour Wheel in Art and are making some very creative clay pieces at the moment!  We have loved learning about the Water Cycle in Science and Geography and have carried out some very exciting (and messy!) experiments.

We had lots of fun last week during Maths Week.  We went on a Maths Trail around Balbriggan, had a Maths Quiz and had our Maths Eyes activity.  A big thank you to all the parents who came in to help out, it was great to see so many parents there!

It’s been a busy couple of weeks in Bracken as Human Rights Fortnight is also in full swing.  As part of Human Rights Fortnight we had a speaker in from Bóthar and we will be taking a trip to the Irish Aid Center on Wednesday which we are all really looking forward to!

Just to remind Parents, if you would like to talk to me, I am available during Golden Time each Friday from 13.40-14.10.  Please let me know in advance and we can arrange a meeting.

Looking forward to a great year,
