First Class

Winter art begins

Take a look at our snowflakes from our art lesson this week. Aren’t they gorgeous? We cut out the snowflake and stuck it onto a piece of a4 paper. We then sponge painted over the snowflake and peeled it off to reveal a hidden snowflake beneath our painting. We have lots more winter & Christmas art to come!

Movement breaks

The weather has not been good this week so far and we weren’t able to get out on yard in the lashing rain. Instead we did a movement break from The Phonics Man on YouTube – the children love all of his exercise videos!

Have a look at your fabulous halloween costumes! Have a safe and happy Halloween.

Getting in the halloween spirit

We got into the Halloween Spirit this week and finished our Halloween Art. We did a spooky moon and cat scene, while listening to Spooky Scary Skeletons. Take a look at our art!

Maths week

This week is Maths week across the country. We became architects and builders and did some work on families of 7 and 9. We also learned about odd numbers and started a fabulous new circle time game working on odd numbers. The children were excellent at this!

2D Shape Monsters

We revised our 2D shapes this week by making 2D shape monsters this week. All our monsters were different and unique!

A bUsy weEk

This week in 1st Class we started English stations. We started our Halloween art and also started learning Wagon Wheel as Gaeilge – “Tóg Amach Mé”. We completed some Science experiments testing what items are translucent/ transparent/ opaque. The children really enjoyed this.

Optical illusion iniTial art

How impressive are these art pieces by First Class? The lines were drawn using a ruler – this took great patience and concentration, but we succeeded! Well done First!

Word wipeout

We tried out a new game this week called ”Word Wipeout” to help us learn our spellings. The children loved this game – a fun way to revise our spellings!

The Five Senses

This week in SESE we have been learning about our 5 Senses. We have been learning our poem ”The Five Senses” along with testing out some of our senses. We tested our sense of touch this week, and the difference it would make if we were without it!

A busy September in 1st class

Have a look at our art from the first few weeks of school.

We read The Dot by Peter J Reynolds and responded through the medium of Art printing with different shapes.
