Over the last two weeks the children in Senior Infants have been learning to play the Bodhrán. We have been learning to play a gig and a reel using the Bodhrán. It has been great fun :)
Our theme this week in Aistear is houses and homes. As part of this, we looked at the homes of the three little pigs and decided to make straw, stick and brick houses from shoe boxes, toilet rolls, paper etc. Here are a few pics :)
In October our two Aistear themes have been the construction site and the fire station. Here are a few pics :)
Tracksuit days for the shamrocks this year is on Thursday and Friday.
We have been learning all about The Bakery in Aistear. We all had a chance to put our chef's hat on and mix ingredients in our role play area and sell cakes to customers. We also made Gingerbread Men at our creative station and even made cupcakes! We had lots of fun making them but even more fun eating them!
The Shamrocks had so much fun during Active Schools Week! We had an Easter Egg Hunt, we had an active assembly and, best of all, we had our Sports Day. Have a look at our photos!
We have been so busy here in The Shamrocks since returning to school after our lovely midterm break. We have been learning all about Spring and The Farm and the different animals and plants we see during this time.
We also know how to combine numbers to make other numbers. Did you know that 2 and 2 makes 4 but 1 and 3 also makes 4? Maths is great fun!
We also made pancakes, watched our chicks hatch and dressed up for World Book Day!
This week we've been learning all about the wind in Room 2. We know that wind is just air that's moving. We also learned a song called Blow Wind, Blow. We learned even more when we went outside on this windy day and used all of our senses to experience the wind in full. It was lots of fun!
We have been learning about 2-D shapes in the Shamrocks for the last couple of weeks. We have made our own pictures by cutting out shapes using templates. We have also been learning more and more about numbers and how we make them. Maths is fun!
We are all feeling energised and excited to be back after Christmas! We have been learning about a new theme in Aistear, The Vet. We have been looking after the animals by giving them vaccinations and operations and letting them rest in the recovery area! We have also been designing posters for the vet and constructing our very own vet's clinic.
We're so excited about Christmas in Room 2! We have been learning through play in Aistear. Our theme is Santa's Workshop. We have also been learning lots of new sounds and discovering plenty of things about the number 4! We have been lucky enough to be visited by an Elf. We gave him the name Ronnie. We write in his diary every day.
The Shamrocks have been busy since we came back to school after our midterm break. Take a look at how we've been practicing our sounds, learning about 3D Shapes and playing at The Camp Site!
This week we paid a visit to The Buttercups where Miss Earley brewed a witch's potion and cast a spooky spell! We also dressed up and had our Witch's Walk. We had a spook-tacular time! Happy Halloween everyone!
