Welcome back 4th Class! We had a lovely week running up to Halloween break. We used our procedure writing skills to make magic potion recipes and learned about the history of Vlad the Impaler. We then made spooky paintings of Dracula’s castle!
We also had a fantastic time playing Halloween games and dancing at our school disco in aid of Crumlin Hospital in the memory of our good friend. I’m glad that everyone had a wonderful and safe midterm and are already working super hard in 4th class.
Keep it up everyone!
Our 4th class maths group have been working extremely hard in the past couple of weeks. They work in pairs every week for Word Problem Wednesday and have improved hugely on figuring out these problems.
In Data, they tasted various biscuits and created bar charts to represent the votes of the class for their favourites.
Keep up the amazing work children!

We had great fun in Maths today making our own bar charts. We surveyed our group to see what everyone’s favourite chocolate bar, crisps and drinks were. Follow the link below and you can create your own bar chart.
We are having a Maths Eyes competition in St. Anne’s over the next few weeks. We want to find out who can use their Maths Eyes and take some really cool Maths themed photos around our school building or yard. Maths is everywhere around us!!! Take a look and you will find some examples. Children will be working in teams to take Maths Eyes photos and the winners will each receive a ten euro Smyths Voucher!!!!
Good Luck everyone
Welcome back 4th class! We have had a very productive September. There was huge excitement when Dublin played Kerry in the All Ireland final at Croke Park and our class learned all about the history of the GAA and the Gaelic League. We also watched the match and created reviews using our recount skills.
UP THE DUBS!!!!
St. Anne’s will have a navy and blue day on Friday 18th to support the Dublin team. All children will dress in blue and navy.
