Culture Day - organised by the Student Council
We had such a fun day celebrating the different cultures that are important to us. We recorded some interesting facts and shared these with our families on Seesaw.
"All in the Middle of the Night"
We had great fun learning this song as part of our Dabbledoo music lessons.
October Traditions and Celebrations
We learnt about some interesting traditions and celebrations including Halloween and the Hindu festival of Diwali. We have three children from India in our class and were very lucky to have one mother come and speak to us about Diwali. We made beautiful paper lanterns to celebrate Diwali, the festival of light!
We love engineering!
Every group gets to do construction activities one day a week as part of our stations! We use magnet tiles, wedgits, building blocks and a fun problem solving game using a castle! We have different challenges each week and we are really enjoying learning the skills that architects, engineers and designers use!
We love drama!
Drama and role play are great ways for us to work on our oral language skills and the skills of story telling and sequencing that are needed for English and History. Each table group gets the opportunity to do role play once a week as part of our stations. Some of our themes so far have included birthday party, The Enormous Turnip story and The Three Little Pigs story.
WE HAVE STARTED 1ST CLASS!
A big well done to Senior Infants Red on their wonderful performance today. The class have been learning all about The Fire Station and Fire Safety. For their assembly, Senior Infants Red provided all the boys and girls in Esker with some great fire-safety advice.
