First Class went on a trip to Ardgillan Castle. We all enjoyed learning about the different rooms in the house. We were shown around by a princess and a jester. We had so much fun exploring the fairy trail and finding all the little fairy doors. On the way we even caught Big Foot roaming around the forest. We loved running and playing chase with him. It was a fantastic trip!!
Following our trip to the Natural History Museum we have been doing a lot of thinking and learning about animals. We analysed animals’ characteristic features and read Julia Donaldson’s ‘Monkey Puzzle’ which we thought was a funny story! We labelled diagrams of animals and sorted them based on the number of legs they have.
We made some stencil sponge printing of animals as well as hand print lions, monkeys and elephants!
After thinking about how dinosaurs are extinct, we learned about some endangered animals and reflected on how we can reduce our impact on the world by taking care of our environment. After some inquiry into threats faced by tigers and sea turtles, we wrote reports and made our own paper turtles!
In Aistear, we have been caring for sick animals in our vet surgery, creating habitats and making Play-Doh creatures.
Rinnemar píosa scríobhneoireacht faoin ainmhithe éagsúla freisin – is Gaelgeoirí iontach muid! Chomh maith, bhíomar ag léamh an scéal ‘An Lacha Gránna’, agus rinnemar pictiúr den sicín ildaite le foirc sa chlós!
