Food dudes is a healthy eating programme. Our school has been participating in the Food Dudes programme for last few weeks. Everyday your teacher gives you a portion of fruit and vegetables and at the end of the day your teacher will give you a prize if you eat some or all of it. We tasted lots of different types of fruit and vegetables such as cucumber, oranges, peppers, apples etc. We watched videos about two girls and two boys who stopped the junk punks from taking all the fruit and vegetables. Now we are in Phase 2 and we have to bring in our own fruit and vegetables in our Food Dudes lunchbox. Food Dudes is great fun!

We had a great day in 2nd Class presenting projects. Two weeks of research & structuring their work to the end products. Topics were varied including Animatronics, Knitting, Musical instruments, Volcanos, World Wars, Donald Trump, Geology, Animals & many more wonderful ideas. The pupils made their presentations in booklets, posters, timelines, PowerPoint and also usedsome models, samples and quizzes. Well done everyone, a great learning experience for us all & such enthusiasm for the task!
Hour of Code took place worldwide from December 5-11th. Our class took part and really enjoyed it. We really enjoyed Minecraft, Flappy Bird and Moana coding. If you would like to try out some coding go to www.hourofcode.org/learn. On the map below you can see all the schools in Ireland who participated in the hour of code, GETNS are on the map!
Third Class have been learning about lots of different artists over the last few weeks. During our latest art project we learnt about Jackson Pollock. Inspired by Jackson Pollock’s artwork pupils created art pieces on canvas. Pupils used lots of different tools to drip paint onto the canvas like Jackson Pollack did.
A special thank you to Sarah Rubin for all her work with our class.
