First Class had great fun doing a Maths Trail for Maths Week. They were busy using their Maths skills - counting, measuring and finding shapes in their classroom, school building and out on yard.
A Visit to the County Library and Hall
First Class had a very exciting trip on Friday to the County Library where author and illustrator Derek Mulveen talked to them about how he became an author/illustrator and read them one of his books Oisín the Brave- Robot Island. He was very entertaining and more than happy to answer all their questions! After a spot of lunch they were then treated to a trip up to the seventeenth floor of the County Hall where they were able to marvel at the spectacular views from the large glass windows. They finished off their trip by visiting the new Council Chambers where they were given a guided tour and were delighted to sit on the councillors chairs and test their microphones to ask and answer questions. They returned to school on the Double Decker Bus very happy after their exciting day out.
First class have been learning about the topic of transport in our S.E.S.E. programme. As part of this we completed a transport survey. We had great fun watching and recording the various modes of transport as they passed our school!
First Class engaged in some very colourful artwork today to celebrate 'blasting off into First Class'. Here's to a great journey/year! They also constructed some picture timelines as part of their History Curriculum to show how much they've grown and changed since they were a baby. They had great fun wandering around looking at each others timelines and were especially amused to see pictures of their teachers when they were younger!
First Class kicked off the new school year with a visit to the School Garden. There they helped Mr. Keady harvest the many wonderful crops and he shared his vast knowledge of all the vegetables and fruits growing there.They were delighted to bring a sample of the produce home to enjoy which included onions, parsnip, beetroot, spinach, rhubarb and apples.
