April & May in 1st Class 😃

The final term is always a busy one in school. Take a look at what we have been up to below.

March 🐣☘️ 🧸

Visual Arts 
We created lots of beautiful artwork this month. 🤩

Mothers Day 
We wrote down things that we loved about our Mums for Mother’s Day and created this lovely keepsake for them. 💜

Gaeilge 
We have been working hard on our Irish, playing lots of games to help us learn new topics. Ceithre sa líne and POP were great to help us learn about An Cháisc. 🐣 

The Water Cycle
In science we have been learning about the water cycle. In groups we each made our own water cycle in a bag so we could watch it happen in our classroom. ☔️

Maths – Fractions
We have been doing lots of work in Maths this month on Fractions and Subtraction.

Teddy Bears Picnic 
We had a great time at the Teddy Bears Picnic. Even though it was raining we still managed to get out for a walk and raise some money for Pieta. 

Easter Procedural Writing
We have been studying procedural writing in English this month. We each wrote out a procedure to make chocolate Easter nests and afterwards we got to make them. They were DELICIOUS!! 😃 

VIP’s 
Each week we earn table points to become VIP’s the following week. As next week is Easter this weeks winners got an Easter egg. 😊

Picker Pals ♻️

First Class have been enjoying the Picker Pals initiative which encourages litter picking and looking after the environment. A new picker pal is chosen each week to help clean up the local area. Thanks to Hannah for sending in some photos of her work last weekend.

February

In February our overall theme in SESE was Spain. We learned lots of new information about this country, including famous artists, explorers and festivals that happen here.  🇪🇸 

At the end of the month we split into groups and created a group project. (Their very first time doing this). The children worked extremely hard and produced fantastic work at the end. Take a look at their amazing projects below. 📝📔

We have been working hard in Maths, especially on our tens and units. ➕➖✖️

Valentines Day fell in February and we created these lovely cards for our loved ones using a printing technique called pointillism. ❤️🎨

We have been playing lots of interactive games in Gaeilge to increase our vocabulary. Bingo is a class favourite. 

We also got the opportunity to make our very own St. Brigid’s Day crosses at the beginning of the month. 

February has been another busy and exciting month in First Class. 😃
