September in 1st Class 🍂

Welcome to First Class A 😃

Our class is made up of 8 girls and 6 boys. Our teachers name is Ms. Golden. 

September has been a busy month settling back into school. Take a look at some snapshots below. 

iPad Fun 📱 

We are really trying to incorporate ICT into our lessons. Literacy and numeracy games are a real hit for station work. 

We also enjoy using QR codes. As our writing genre for September is Report we each picked a QR to scan and it brought us to an animal we had to write a report on. It was SO MUCH FUN! 

Art 🖼 

We have done lots of lovely art work already this month – from self portraits to autumn trees to studying an artist called Kandinsky and recreating his work. 

Outdoor Classroom 

September has been quite mild so we have been making the most of our outdoor classroom where we can. 

Music Generation 🎵 

We are so lucky to have Aisling coming in for Music Generation each week. We are learning so much from her, and just love when she brings in instruments for us to play. 

Sports day 🥳

The rain didn’t stop the fun at our Sports Day on Wednesday. We had a GREAT time and the ice-cream van was such a lovely surprise at the end of the day. 🍦

Titanic 🚢

Aaron is really interested in the Titanic. He has been reading books, watching documentaries and researching information online. He has recently been building his own ship out of junk art materials at home. Unfortunately it was too big to bring into school, but he took a photo of it to bring in and show his class. It is just FANTASTIC! ⭐️

Narrative Writing 📝

We studied the genre of Narrative Writing a couple of months ago. We followed the writing process: plan, write, revise, edit, publish. All of our stories are now in one book in our library. It is a class favourite to read. 📚

STEM 🧬

We have been learning all about transport this month. For science we were given the task to design and build a bridge that could hold a toy car. Each group was successful. 👏🏻

Spring Picnic 🌸

We have been reading ‘Spring Picnic Planning’ in English over the last two weeks. It taught us lots of new and healthy recipes to make for a picnic. Today we all brought in healthy snacks and went outside to have our own picnic in school. The weather didn’t stop us and we managed to get out in between showers. It was SO much fun!
