Time Well Spent in Mr. Dunne’s Third Class!
Mr. Dunne’s third class kicked off the New Year with a bang! We’ve been doing loads of really interesting things in class so far this year. Here’s a few examples!
We’ve been learning about time and how to tell the time. We decided to make our own clocks using paper plates and a lot of hard work! They work really well, and we’re finding them really helpful in class. Not to mention, we got to add our own designs to them to personalise them. You can tell we spent a lot of time on them… but, after all, hard work takes time!
We’ve also been learning about the food pyramid and the five food groups – carbohydrates, fruit and vegetables, dairy, protein and fats. We’ve been looking at what’s in our lunches and what we’re eating at home. We created menus that contained all of the five food groups! We also looked at the amount of sugar in different kinds of drinks. You can see in the picture below the amount of sugar in flavoured water, Sprite, a smoothie (although this is the good, natural kind of sugar!), a Monster energy drink and a bottle of Coke. We were all really surprised at some of them!!
That’s all for now, we’ll check back in again soon!
