We are currently learning all about the farm in Aistear and where food comes from. We had a visit from a parent who told us all about working in a veterinary surgery so we have lots of ideas for our drama area. We had a surprise visit from Penny the Hen. We learnt all about the life cycle of a chicken. It was a very enjoyable morning.
We have been on a 2-D shape hunt in the school environment. We found triangles, squares, rectangles and circles everywhere and took photos with our ipads.
As we are an active school we have been taking part in 10@1 in our school for Jan and Feb 2018. We have been dancing, exercising and walking.
We have been learning all about space. We are flying rockets on mission, planting seeds in space, constructing satellites and rockets and making the solar system. We are using the language of space in our play.
