We had our GAA coaching outside today. We practised our kicking skills.
This week we are learning how to measure length. We used strides, feet and hand spans to measure the PE hall, our classroom, lines and various furniture and items.
This week we have been learning about capacity. We explored the volumes of various containers during maths lessons and also during playtime. Water play is so much fun!
We listened to The Ugly Duckling and An Lacha Ghránna and responded to the story by creating our own swans in art.
Our theme for the month of April was 'water'. An 'Aquarium' opened it's doors in the role-play area. Tickets were bought and various types of fish observed and identified in the tanks. A cruise ship set sail in small world, while many many fish and ocean creatures were made at the malleable area. Boats and fishing rods were among many items constructed every day. Everyone had a great time!
We are really enjoying all of the activities for Seachtain na Gaeilge. We made Leprechaun masks for St. Patrick's Day. Aren't they lovely!
