In maths we have been learning about 2D shape in many different ways. We drew the shapes during art and created shape monster made from 2D shapes. During our maths lessons, we made the shapes on geo-boards and peg boards. In PE we made the shapes in groups. Take a look at our work!
On Friday we had our first GAA training session with our coach Peter. We practised Gaelic football and learned how to bounce the ball and how to solo. We can't wait until next Friday!
In Geography, we have been learning about people and their jobs. Each of us were given a job to learn about over the mid-term break and today we turned out classroom into a working town. Children from Laura's 1st class came to visit our town. We had great fun working together.
We had a very exciting first day back to school! Olwen Carey, who plays for the Dublin ladies football team, came to visit our school. She brought in the Brendan Martin cup which her team won in the all-Ireland football final this year. We were so excited to meet her and see the cup. Enjoy our photos and the video of us all singing Molly Malone to show that we are proud Dubliners!
During our history lessons, we learned about the festival of Halloween. During art, we used our knowledge to create some decorations for the classroom.
We have had a very busy October! In maths, we have been doing lots of team work to help us learn our numbers 10-20. We have all been improving our reading and have been practicing with our "buddy readers" in the classroom. Also, we have been learning all about Autumn and made some fantastic art using Autumn leaves. We researched facts about the hedgehog and wrote some poems to describe them. In history, we learned about homes in the past and built models of traditional Irish cottages. We really enjoyed the One Day Together Food Fair and enjoyed tasting lots of different types of delicious food. Finally, we have been playing very nicely with our friends and classmates both on the yard and during Friday Golden Time! What a great month! Have a look at our photo gallery to see some of our great learning.
We have had a very exciting first few weeks in 1st class! We have been getting to know each other and our new classroom as well as doing some fantastic learning. Check out some of our pictures and videos below.
