We had great fun planting and looking after our cress seeds this week. We have been learning about life cycles and found the life cycle of a plant very interesting. We learned all about how to care for a plant and to make sure it has everything it needs to grow. We also learned a song as Gaeilge called "Síolta Beaga."
Our value this week is fairness. We are learning about what fairness actually means - not that everyone gets the same thing but that everyone gets what they need to be successful We thought of examples where we can see this in school and at home. We also brainstormed ideas for how we can show fairness towards others or act in a fair way, especially in the classroom and at lunch time. We enjoyed listening to this story which explains more about what it means to be fair.
We are revising what we know about nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs by searching for these in the books we love! As we love Harry Potter in Daisies, we soon found out that these books were full of interesting words that we could use in our own writing. As a team, we sorted the words we found into different groups and tried to find as many of each as we could! We really enjoyed this activity and will definitely do it again soon!
We have just finished our first novel 'The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark'. We really enjoyed learning about the main character Plot and how he overcomes his fear of the dark by exploring and talking about it to the people he meets on his adventures.. We drew our very own versions of Plop against a night sky background.
As part of our 'spring' topic, we are learning about new life and have been exploring the life cycle of the butterfly. We really enjoyed this story about how Cody the Caterpillar grows and changes into a beautiful butterfly.
