We discussed materials and their uses and why certain materials are chosen for certain objects.

The girls then designed their own boat using suitable materials. The next task was to make a boat that would float and hold a small weight ( a magnet!!).

The girls really enjoyed this and I’m sure you’ll agree they were very inventive and creative!

Our 3rd class girls are currently attending swimming lessons. For some avid swimmers it’s a chance to practise and improve their skill. For others it’s their first experience of the pool. After 4 weeks, our swimming instructors are delighted with the progress to date. With only 2 weeks left, we will miss our weekly trip to the pool but we hope that the girls continue to swim and become strong and able swimmers.

An important part of learning to swim is using the pool safely and general water safety. Here are some safety posters designed by room 4.

Just before Easter 3rd class girls from Room 5 made dioramas to show their favourite scenes from their favourite fairytales. Judging was very difficult, but in the end three winners were chosen. They were Agnieszka (Tinkerbell), Alyssa (Snow White) and Phoung My (Cinderella). Well done!
