Here are some photos of playing during our first week in school. We enjoyed making new friends and playing with all the fun toys in our new classroom!

 

      

  

 

 

 

 

We are working very hard to improve our fine motor skills while doing activities that we enjoy!

         

We all brought in 5 things from home that were special to us and we shared these with our new classmates during a show and tell.  It helped us to make new friends and get to know each other. We realised that some of us are very similar and like the same things!!

We all decorated our Me Bags and placed our special things inside. Have a look at our fabulous creations below!

This week we read the story 'Owl Babies' and sequenced the events from the story. We loved Sarah and Percy, but Bill was definitely our favourite!

We have had so much fun exploring the theme of 'Home and Family' over the past two weeks during our Aistear playtime.

 

 

   

 

     

 

 

 

   

Poor Humpty Dumpty fell off the wall, but don't worry, we got some plasters and put him back together!

It's one of our favourite nursery rhymes so we stuck him on our classroom door!

We created out homes using lollipop sticks and drew our family inside!

We have been exploring the themes of Halloween and Autumn during our Aistear time. We have had lots of fun dressing up, making nests for our hedgehogs and constructing Autumn gardens!

 

During maths week we engaged in some fun maths activities in the school hall. We really enjoyed working with the 6th class girls and playing all their fun maths games!

Look at the fabulous Autumn art work we created using lots of different Autumnal colours. We have displayed our artwork on the school corridor for all the other classes to enjoy. We are very artistic here in Room 18!

We dressed up for Halloween and went on a spooky walk around the school with all the classes. When we came back to the classroom we made a smelly witches potion! We almost turned into frogs!!

We ended the day with a trip to the fairy garden.

We have been exploring the theme of 'The Birthday Party' during our Aistear time. We had lots of fun making birthday cards and celebrating different people's birthday. We even made rice crispie buns!!
On the last day we had a real birthday party and we played lots of fun party games! This was definitely one of our favourite themes so far!

 

Our next theme was 'The Doctor's Surgery'. We learned all about the equipment that doctor's use and we had lots of fun helping sick patients!

We made Elf Houses!

Santa came to visit!

Say Cheese!

Christmas Art

We had a great time today at the school Christmas markets. The older classes created some fabulous stalls which we enjoyed. We bought lots of wonderful things!

Today, we visited the church in Clane with 6th class. We have been learning all about the birth of baby Jesus and it was so lovely to see the crib in the church. We sang our Christmas carol 'Baby Jesus We Love You' and Ms Carberry read us a lovely story.

We have been very busy preparing for the school's annual Christmas carol service. We choose two songs and a poem to learn and we practiced and practiced until our voices were sore!

After all our practicing, we performed for all the classes in the school hall. We were so confident and sang so beautifully. Ms Digan was so proud!

Have a look below for a short snippet of our pre-performance rehearsal in our classroom. We hope you enjoy.

We kicked off 2024 by learning all about the weather!

First we put on our weather binoculars and took a good look outside at the different weather we experience here in Clane each day!

Then, we made some fabulous weather clocks so we can record the different weather. Check them out below!!

Our next Aistear was 'The Restaurant'. We had so much fun in role as waitresses, chefs and customers. We all made menu's for our customers to enjoy. Our chefs were very busy in the kitchen creating fabulous meals.  Phew.... We only had a few grumpy customers!

At the art station we painted some  fruit bowls after being inspired by the famous artwork of Wayne Thiebaud. At the sand station we searched for buried treasure (food!) and made some delicious meals. Finally, in construction we build our dream restaurants!

Shhhh. Did someone say we have future county stars in Clane???

Every Thursday we have been learning camogie with our coach Brian. We put on our helmets and with our sliotars and hurleys in hand off we go!! Ms. Digan is so proud of us!
