Everyone in Room 1 just loved Active Week – some of us even wish it could be Active Week every week! We enjoyed practicing our skipping, learning new soccer skills and having fun at our races in Mountjoy Square…
And, of course, we really loved our yummy ice cream cones – what a special treat!
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!
