I have uploaded an outline of some work here which may help during the current school closure. Also uploaded are some stories which you may like to read with your child and links to games/videos.
The children had great fun figuring out how they could make their bridge longer without it breaking. They figured out that using chairs to support it was the best way to stop it from bending and thus breaking.
On 5th March we went to the library for storytime with Penny. We listened to the story 'Three Billy Goats Gruff'.
We had fun exploring with magnets and figuring out what would be attracted to them and what would not.
Great care and love went into making the Valentine's Day cards which the children bought home!
We learned all about Egypt in history and geography. We learned that in Ancient Egypt, when pharaohs died they were buried as mummies. We made mummies in Art. First we worked together to make the mummies using cling film and tape wrapped around a doll. We then removed the doll, stuffed the shell with newspaper and painted them gold. Another day, we decorated them with other colours.
Learning about China
We learned about China in November. We learned that Pandas live in China. These are our collages of Pandas which we made using crepe paper. Can you see the green bamboos behind them?
We also made some Chinese fans, which rich and powerful people use to show their wealth.
We had great fun mixing paint to create different shades of blue. Here are some of the Winter skies we painted using brushes and sponges.
Do you hear the pitter patter? Hear the raindrops falling down? Don’t worry, our umbrellas will keep us dry!
Christmas is Coming!!
Christmas concert preparations kept us very busy! We had great fun trying on the costumes.
Christmas Tree Art
We created Christmas trees using hand prints and decorated them with bottle-corks. Aren’t they lovely!
St. Brigid's Day
To celebrate St. Brigid’s day we learned about how St. Brigid asked the King for some land to build a church on. He agreed to give her as much land as her cloak could cover. Her cloak grew and grew until it was the size of a church.
Learning about Africa in Art, Music and SESE!
Over the past few weeks we have been learning all about Africa. We made our own African necklaces and Djembe drums, look how colourful they are!
