Nativity Play 2016

On Wednesday the 14th of December, Ms. Mahon and Ms. Ryan’s 1st Classes took to the stage under the directorship of Mrs. Barrer to perform the Nativity Play. The boys and girls put on an absolutely fantastic show and they all looked lovely in their costumes.

They were also joined by the school choir and children playing percussion instruments who all sounded fantastic!

Life Cycle of the Butterfly

We have read the Hungry Caterpillar whilst learning about the life cycle of the butterfly.  We even have our own caterpillars which are now in cocoons.  We can’t wait for them to become butterflies very soon!!20160602_134358 20160602_134450


Learning about capacity

We took advantage of the good weather and took our learning outside.  We played with sand and water to learn about the concept of capacity.  The children were so engrossed in this activity and used lots of maths language whilst chatting with their partners.  They talked about containers being full, empty, holding more, holding less.  They measured how many spoons would fill a cup and counted as they went.  We all had great fun!

The Hungry Caterpillar

20160527_145012

We have been reading the story “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle.  We have learned all about the life cycle of the butterfly and have completed lots of activities based on this theme.

Today we made Hungry Caterpillar necklaces using painted pasta, beads and card.  It was a little tricky but we stuck with it and made some beautiful pieces.

We even have our own caterpillars in our room.  We have watched them grow over the past two weeks.  We think that they might be hanging in their cocoons when we come back to school on Monday.

A trip to the garden

After enjoying a lovely lunch at the picnic tables in the garden we decided to explore the garden.

Gardaí- New recruits!

When the Gardaí came to visit the boys and girls got a chance to dress up in their uniform.  I think you’ll agree that they make the cutest new recruits!
