We had great fun making - and eating - pancakes today in third class
Today, we worked on our Pancóga lesson in Irish and followed through with pancake procedure work in English. Take a look and the photos below and you will see that we can make excellent pancake batter.
We cooked our pancakes but couldn't wait for the most exciting part - trying out as many toppings as possible on our delicious desserts! Finally, we were ready to enjoy the Runaway Pancake and Mr Wolf's Pancake stories.
We made pancakes at school today. We laid out the ingredients and equipment needed and followed a recipe. Sugar, lemon juice and chocolate were our toppings of choice. The pancakes were delicious!!
We learned all about how to make pancakes like the ingredients and the equipment we needed. After we made the batter for the pancakes we sequenced the steps using pictures. The pancakes were delicious, yum yum.
We have been looking at and exploring 3d shapes in our classroom. We discussed how many faces, edges and vertices each 3d shape has. We created our own shapes (ranging from the simple cube to more complex shapes like pentagonal pyramids and octahedrons) using spaghetti and marshmallows. Take a look at our work...
Today we were learning all about Pancake/Shrove Tuesday at school. We are now thinking about what Lenten promises we will make tomorrow. We had a lot of fun learning how make pancake batter . Sinéad gave us her secret recipe and we took notes of the ingredients! Afterwards we wrote out our own recipe with a list of ingredients and the method. They were delicious - we wish it was Pancake Tuesday EVERYDAY!!!
Today we had a visit from Annette Mc Nelis to Ms Regan's class. Annette did a fabulous music workshop with us, where she explored an environmental message with the class, through music. We all had great fun.
This week in Digital Buddies, Room 10 joined up with Ms. McNicholas' 4th class!!

Today, in third class. we made and decorated Valentines Day Cookies. They look and smell delicious
We made love bugs for Valentines Day using our painting, colouring and cutting skills!
6th class & 2nd class joined forces here in Bushypark NS to have our first 'Digital Buddies' Workshop!
Each 2nd class pupil was assigned a buddy from 6th class who worked with them during the various different stations. The 6th class pupils shared their valuable knowledge and iPad skills with their buddies and were fantastic mentors for the 2nd class pupils. For this session we worked with:
'Lego WeDo 2.0'
'See - Saw'
All of the pupils really enjoyed the session. Have a look at the photos to see what we got up to!
We have learned how to play 'The Galway Shawl' on tin whistle. I'm sure you'll agree we're very talented!!
