In Maths we were learning all about 2D shapes. We did 2D shape collages in Art. We hope you like them as we had great fun doing this.

In S.E.S.E. we learned all about the Squirrel and we drew pictures of the squirrel. Didn’t we do a good job. We really enjoyed that activity.

We also learned about the Hedgehog in S.E.S.E. this term. We are very proud of our Hedgehog pictures – some of us even gave our Hedgehog a name!

In Gaeilge we learned lots of phrases and words about “Mé Féin”. We also did Self-portraits in Gaeilge and displayed them in the Classroom. Hope you like them!

In English Mrs Watson read The Twits by Roald Dahl to us. We really enjoyed listening to the hilarious tale. Each of us drew a picture of Mr and Mrs Twit. We loved doing that activity and hope you enjoy seeing our pictures.

We also painted lovely autumn trees this term. We traced around our hand to from the trunk and the branches and then we added the multi-coloured autumn leaves using a cotton bud. See photos of us enjoying doing that activity.

One of our topics in S.E.S.E. (Geography) this term was My Locality. We learned lots of interesting things about Our Locality. Each of us then drew a picture of “My Favourite Place in my Locality”. We discovered that many children’s favourite place in the locality is Aughrane Forest while others preferred the park. Everyone showed his/her picture to the class and explained the reason for picking that place.

First and Second Class did lots of things to celebrate Maths Week this year. Each of us filled in our Birth Month in our School Birthday Chart. We also did a Maths Trail in our groups. We had to work together inside the classroom and outside the school when completing the Trail. We always enjoy doing Maths this way.

As part of Maths Week Mrs Watson gave us a Maths Problem to solve each day. Congratulations to Ellen, Sabina, Finín, Johnny and Abbie for winning the daily prize for Problem of the Day.

On the final day of Maths Week we had great fun playing Maths Games. Maths Games make Maths such fun!

Congratulations to Weronika in 2nd class and Ruth in 1st class who were both awarded Maths Week Certificates for working so hard at their Maths. Well done girls!
