Our Aistear theme in September was 'The Birthday Party'. We set up party food in our role play area. We played party games like pin the tail on the donkey, memory match and snap. We were learning the months of the year by singing a song. We wrote party invitations and borthday cards. We had so much fun!
We have been really lucky to have teachers from Music generation teaching us percussion every Wednesday. We use our bodies or instruments to perfrom percussion activities.
We were so proud to win the Golden Boot trophy this week. Our class had the highest number of people who travelled to school in an environmentally friendly way. Some of us walked, some cycled and some did park and stride. Our Green school representatives Mia and Sonny are holding our Golden Boot trophy.
We've really enjoyed our first few weeks in 1st class red. Here are some photos from our Aistear, literacy centres and maths centres. We are excited to continue learning new things this year.
We were so happy to be able to bring our sunflower seedlings home last week. We planted them in our classroom one month ago. We had to water them and take care of them until the grew enough to take home. We now need to make sure to water them regularly and let them get lots of sun until they are big enough to plant outside.
We have been learning about the history of our school garden. We found out that our PTA started to plan and build our school garden in 2016. We saw lots of photos of how the garden looked in 2016 and all of the hard work that has been done to get it to where it is today. We can see why our PTA have won so many awards for our fantastic school garden. Last week we began to draw maps of our school garden.
