The children have been learning all about Autumn and created lovely Autumn leaves.
The children did a brilliant job of painting themselves.
The children really enjoyed creating their sock puppets.
The children designed their own special bags and placed three of their own special items in the bags.
The children really enjoyed taking part in various stations for maths week. They loved forming numbers using uni-fix cubes and making 2D shapes using lollipop sticks.
In September, the children were learning about school long ago. Fia's Granny kindly came into the class to talk to them about her experience in school. The children made a scrapbook on what they learned and it was sent home each night to a different child.
We loved making spooky dancing skeletons for Halloween. The children's costumes were amazing.
We were very lucky to get StreetSmart in to teach the children all about road safety. The children really enjoyed taking part.
The children really enjoyed their trip to the Christmas markets. They bought loads of tasty treats. They also created lovely Winter and Christmas art. Take a look!!
Ho, Ho, Ho!! The children were so excited to get a visit from Santa. They sang a song for him and received lovely gifts.
This is the year of the rat. The children loved learning all about China and how they celebrate Chinese New Year. As part of the celebrations, we made lovely, colourful lanterns. Take a look at them below.
For St. Patricks's Day, the children dressed in all green. They performed to the Irish folk song 'An damhsa mór' and created lovely St. Patrick's Day art.
For Spring the children planted sunflower seeds. For this we used biodegradable pots, soil and water. We placed them in the sunlight. The children loved seeing them grow. They also made lovely Spring art.
Thank you to Sophie for sending in these pictures of her sunflower. Wow! Look how big it has grown. Sophie is taking really good care of her plant.
Last week the children took part in Active Home Week. Due to school closures, the girls did all their activities at home. I received so many brilliant pictures and videos of the girls taking part in various activities such as running, walking, gymnastics, hula hooping, trampolining , cycling, swinging, dancing, etc. Some of the girls also wrote what they were doing in their news, which was lovely to read. It was brilliant that we were able to connect as a class and show each other what we got up to.
Even though we are not in the classroom, we are still learning together. It has been so nice receiving updates on what the children are getting up to. It looks like they have been busy little bees. They have been doing lots of fun things such as baking, experiments, wildlife projects, art, learning Gaeilge using fun resources, cycling, exercising, playing, looking after their pets whilst also doing their school work. Take a look!!
The children made beautiful butterfly art at home. Take a look at our amazing creations.
At home, the children read 'Mr. Gumpy's Outing' by John Burningham. Mr. Gumpy had a lot of animals on his boat. The boat tipped and into the water they fell.The children made some incredible boats at home. They made them out of recycled materials. The boats all floated on the water, so they would all be suitable for Mr. Gumpy and his animals.
Take a look at all the minibeasts we spotted at home.
The children learned about different sea creatures at home. They wrote facts on their favourite sea creature and drew a picture of it. They also created some lovely seaside pictures. Take a look...
