We are settling into our new school and making lots of new friends . We have been learning all about the shoe shop and playing in the role play area, with the small world toys, at the creative station and with the construction toys.
We had a fantastic day out at Turoe Pet farm. We saw lots of lovely animals, played in an indoor and outdoor playground and we bounced on the biggest bouncy castle you've ever seen!! Here's some pictures from our happy time.
The girls and boys in Room 2 have had a fantastic start to their school year. They have been having lots of fun playing with their new friends and exploring all the toys and games in their classroom.
Look at how much we've grown! We've had a great first year in school and our fantastic Reading Buddies set up an outdoor challenge for us on Tuesday, June 20th. We had lots of fun looking and recording.
We had a great day out today, Wednesday the 14th of June. We got the bus to Turoe pet farm where we got to play indoors, feed the animals, play outdoors and go on the biggest bouncy slide you've ever seen! We met lots of fantastic animals along our nature walk. Have a look at all our happy faces!
It is the season of summer and watching the beautiful butterflies fluttering by inspired us to learn more about them. We read about their life cycle and we read'The Very Hungry Caterpillar,' by Eric Carle. We found a ladybird in the yard one day so we looked at their life cycle in our Small World book and read 'The Very Lazy Ladybird.' Look at our beautiful butterflies!
We were learning about capacity in maths. We discussed and measured which containers hold more and which hold less liquid. We also discussed the words full and empty. We had to arrange the containers in order of which we thought holds the most down to which holds the least. We had great fun pouring water and measuring during maths.
Today we held our annual show for Seachtain na Gaeilge. Here are some pictures and videos of the children from junior infants, senior infants, 1st class, 2nd class and our school band performing songs, dramas, poems and dances. Some parents also came along to watch the performances. We all really enjoyed the show and we had fun learning lots of Irish along the way.
Lá Fhéile Pádraig Shona Daoibh!
Room 2 went to visit Room 1 to watch Ms. Newell make a St. Brigit's cross from rushes. We have it hanging in our room now. February 1st is St. Brigit's Day.
Look at who came to school with us on January 19th! We had great fun showing our teddies our classroom and then we brought them to visit the doctor. We have very healthy teddies now!
We are learning about sentences . We are counting words in sentences and figuring out where the full stop goes! We had fun putting the words 'I' 'have' and 'a' in order and then filling in the last word ourselves! Nobody forgot to put a full stop in at the end!
We made paper bag puppets! We had so much fun! We love using them for Drama !
