December is always a busy month in school, with lots of excitment building for Christmas. We still managed to get a lot of work covered this month though, take a look below.
Hot Chocolate Art 🍫 – using paint and marshmallows.
Winter Scenes ❄️ created by our talented First Class students. ❄️
Snow Globe tree decorations – what a lovely keepsake. 🎄
For maths this month, our favourite topics were 3-D shapes and Length.
Elf Antics –
Meet our class Elf – Fudge. He arrived early December and has been making us laugh every day. He even brought the boys and girls a special certificate to let them know they are on the Nice List!
Christmas Displays 🎅🏼
We have been learning all about Advent this month. We each made an advent promise and also a whole class advent calandar with a fun activity to complete each day. We have really enjoyed this.
S.E.S.E. – Aurora Borealis
For geography this month we were learning about Lapland. Do you know the special person who lives there? We loved this topic, and particularly enjoyed learning about the Aurora Borealis. We incorporated this into our artwork and created our own using black paper and chalk.
Gaeilge – Litir chuig Daidí na Nollag 📝
We are getting so good at our Gaeilge in First Class. We practiced using our new words by writing a letter to Santa. We are so proud of how they turned out.
Class Rewards –
For decmeber we have been counting down the days until Christmas. We add a puff of white to Santa’s beard each day to help us.
We have also been collecting marshmallows to have a class hot chocolate party!
