Keep an eye on this page to find out about the exciting activities we are getting up to in our class this year.
PLEASE NOTE: PE days for January will be Wednesday & Friday . Tracksuits should only be worn these days.
Poetry on the Corona Virus
We learnt about acrostic poems last week from Ms. O’ Meara but also on RTE School Hub too. Ms. O’ Meara gave us a challenge to create our very own poems on the Corona Virus. We had to describe how we were feeling about during this lock down and tell the reader of some of the restrictions that were in place for it. Some of our fantastic work can be viewed here.
Getting surrealistic at home
While learning from home we have been looking at surrealism this month. Dali used this technique really well where he uses some realistic things and some very unrealistic characteristics in his work. We re-created our own versions of Dali’s work ‘Elephants’ here.
Zumba with Audrey
We were delighted to have our first dance class with Audrey last Friday. We revised some of the dances we previously covered last year an then we got to learn dance moves for a new Spanish song. Have a look at our video from the first week here.
Assembly Song for the month of January
Our whole school is practicing ‘Music Makers ‘ to sing at assembly at the end of the month. Here is the music video that pupils can practice with their brothers and sisters at home.
Skip Counting in multiples of 2,4, 8 3 , 6 & 9 have been our main focus for our mental maths parts of each lesson. It is so important we practice multiple counting tasks as much as we can to speed us up getting the answers to our tasks and word problems in class . Here are some of the activities we use in class on our whiteboard to help us.
In Maths we are revising and practicing our addition and subtraction number bonds. A website that we have found fun and exciting over the past week is https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
We introduced BOGGLE to our classroom early finisher activities last week. We found it tricky at the start but it was really fun when we got the hang of it. Some of the pupils wanted to know how to play at home with their families. Here is an online version https://learnenglishkids.britishcouncil.org/games/wordshake
Our Amazing Christmas Concert Performance
Thanks to Ms. Duffy here is a video of our performance on the stage for any parents who may not have got the chance to see us. Well Done to all the boys and girls on learning their words really well over the past month. They look fantastic on stage
Having great fun in the School Garden
We really enjoyed our time in the garden with our new school gardener. We mixed cow manure with the soil to prepare it or planting. We got to plant onions and shallots and were given a chance to use the cutters to tidy up the raspberry plants.
Outdoor & Adventure Activities
We are covering our Outdoor & Adventure strand in PE this term. Here we will be taking part in trails across the school environment to find objects having being given clues, photographs or map symbols. Everyone was really excited about the work but to begin we had to complete some co-operative challenges this week to make sure each of us works well as a team member so we can complete the activities over the next few weeks. Here is a few photos of us passing the challenges set by Ms. O’ Meara.
