Welcome to 3rd and 4th Class
Class Teacher Ms Griffin
September brings huge change:
The new school year has brought about plenty of changes to the 3rd and 4th class room. Between a new mixture of student and a new teacher, 3rd and 4th have been extremely busy. We started the year getting to know each other and making new friends. We learnt about our individual personalities and drew self-portraits.
On the 27th of September 3rd and 4th class participated in Lá Fhéile Bainne 2023. We watched a webinar about ‘the importance of grass to the production of milk’. We talked about milk and learnt about the importance of milk in our everyday lives. The children then enjoyed some chocolate milk from Graze Dairy. They all loved it and can’t wait to take a visit their with their parents some time.
We also started our Ukulele lessons with Music Generation which we do on Tuesdays. We hope to have learnt a few songs by Christmas. The children love their lessons and enjoy the surprise that comes with the mystery cords each week in the lessons.
At the end of September, we had a visit from a PDST Oide. She showed us how to enjoy PE on wet days indoors. This was an excellent opportunity for the school. It will enable us to enhance the teaching of PE in the winter months, here at Hewetson NS.
At the beginning of October, we started tag rugby with Mary Healy. The children were delighted to hear that Mary was coming to do tag rugby with them. The confidence and gross motor skills that rugby gives the children is fantastic. Each child will work on their gross motor skills, while working as part of a team.
Thank you for welcoming me this year. I really appreciate it. I look forward to working alongside such a great staff here in Hewetson NS.
