We were very busy discussing how to be a good friend in Room 5. We spoke about the qualities of a friend that we like.
Then we wrote about all the attributes of our own friends in the classroom. They didn’t know all the lovely things we wrote about them until they got their page! It was so great hearing what our classmates think of us as friends! We felt super
Well done Room 5 – you are all great friends and great people!
We had a fantastic time on our tree hunt to celebrate Tree Day! We did some leaf rubbings into our copies and talked about the different types of trees near our school. We also have our very own oak sapling, which Matthew kindly brought from his garden! Annie kindly brought in some oak leaves, conkers and acorns too! We understand the importance of trees in our ecosystem. We love trees in room 11!
Room 5 were learning all about our capital city – Dublin. We learned about the many different things we can do in the city and we created our own tourist leaflets full of interesting tourist attractions in Dublin.
They look great!
This month we were learning all about Vincent van Gogh. We were looking and responding to a lot of his different pieces of work over his lifetime and learned about his life.
We took inspiration from his work called ‘Starry Night’ and created our own pictures using chalk pastels.
They look great!
Room 13 had a wonderful September, settling back into the routine of school very well. We worked really hard and learned lots about different things, including the History of St Louis, the Mountains, Rivers and Deserts of the world. Have a look at our timelines and map work in the pictures posted! We’re also reading Charlottes Web at the moment, which is really relevant as it’s all about friendship and we’re celebrating Friendship Fortnight on our school. We love the quote “Friendship is one of the most satisfying things in the world”. We’ve also done some Autumnal Art we’d like you to see! Some of us used paint to colour, while others used colouring pencils and markers.
To celebrate National Tree Day, Room 13 learned all about the Birch Tree. We learned that there are two types of birch, the Silver Birch and the Downy Birch. The Downy tends to be smaller and more greyish white while the Silver Birch is has a more silver bark. Silver Birch leaves are more triangular with a pointed tip, while Downy leaves have more rounded leaves and a less pointed tip. We went outside to the green at the front of the school to study the Birch Trees there and see whether they were Downy or Silver Birch!
We are celebrating Friendship Fortnight in room 11! We made flowers and listed different ways to be a good friend in each petal!
