Homework 23rd -27th of November
This week for homework read over the next four rhymes in the book ‘Rhymes Away’ with your child pages 6- 9. The book will be in their school bags.
Your child can say the rhymes with you and do the actions.
Also read a book of choice at home to your child. Discuss the story and pictures. Ask them their likes and dislikes about the book.
House and Homes
We made our own houses using different coloured pieces of card. We talked about the parts of the house in both English and Irish.
Aistear – Houses Homes
We love playing during Aistear. We got to play in the house/kitchen area, we built homes in the construction area with large links, we used lollipop stick and pegs to make fences and walls and we got to use play dough to make things that we find in our homes.
We made our own lava lamp in school for science week. We really enjoyed seeing all the bubbles move.
We have been very busy keeping active in school each day. We loved getting to run and play games on the grass at the front of the school.
Outdoor Classroom Day 5th of November
Today we enjoyed doing our PE outside. We also worked on our rhyming words during our lesson by running to find the matching rhyming words.
In maths we have been working measurements so we made some tall and short towers using cubes.
Fine Motor Activities
We have been doing lots of fine motor activities in school to help our fingers get strong for writing.
We have been making marks of horizontal lines, vertical lines and zig zags using different materials. Some of us used the blackboards and chalk while others used whiteboards and whiteboard markers.
We are making our own ‘Humpty Dumpty’ and had to begin by ripping paper to make his broken egg shells.
Then we had to glue all the pieces down.
For active week we have really enjoyed being outside and getting exercise
We were very lucky and while on our peaceful nature walk we spotted a rainbow. We also picked up some leaves.
We have been having so much fun playing with toys with all our new friends.
