Welcome to Paul's 4th Class 2019 - 2020!
Viking projects: Jigsaw learning
In January 2020, we started learning about the Vikings. We used the iPads to research facts on World Book Online (an encyclopaedia). We left our base tables and were split into new groups to learn about four topics: 1) Viking life, 2) wars and attacks, 3) exploration and trade and 4) shipbuilding and sailing. Next, we will return to our base groups as the experts in our area and share our new knowledge with our base group. This is called jigsaw learning.

Visit to the post office with the Junior Infant classes
On Friday, 13th December the pupils of Fourth Class walked to our local post office with the pupils of Junior Infants. We had been practising letter writing in English and we composed letters to our parents/guardians. We were excited when the letters arrived the following day!

Visiting engineers Stephen and Victor from Dublin City Council
As part of our class's involvement in the Young Engineers Award, we were lucky enough to have a talk in our class from two engineers! Stephen and Victor, who work for Dublin City Council, joined us to discuss the importance of the work of engineers in our everyday lives. They discussed the projects they have been involved in and answered the pupils' questions about engineering. We are extremely grateful to both Stephen and Victor, as well as Engineers Ireland which organised the visit for us.
