P.E at the Barracks with Room 1

Room 1 have really been enjoying going to the Barracks for PE. We practised team games which included moving a hulahoop all around a circle without letting each others hands go! After a few goes we were experts at it!!

Maths in Room 1

Room 1 have been working very hard on subtracting two digit numbers. We used the iPads for the first time to say to practise our subtraction skills!

Marbling in Room 1

During English this week, room 1 have been exploring different art forms including paper maché, paper dolls and marbling . We decided to try our hand at one of them! We learned that this art process happens as oil and water don’t mix and oil floats to the top with the food colouring creating beautiful patterns. Our beautiful art can be spotted in room 1!

Room 1 – Settling into 2nd class

Room 1 have settled really well into St Louis Senior Primary School. Here you can see us doing art, maths activities and partaking in the welcome back assembly with Ms Hanrahan.

Learning about life in Room 1

Room 1 have been exploring what is needed for various forms of life. We are keeping a close eye on our 10 caterpillars who will be released into the millennium in a couple of weeks as painted lady butterflies.
We have also been looking at what plants need to grow and how they respond to light.

Patterns in Room 1

Room 1 were learning about patterns in maths. We used our maths eyes to discover patterns all around the school. Here are some of the patterns we made!

Engineers in Room 1

Engineering is problem solving and being creative in the way you think. Room 1 became engineers and made wind turbines, explored the best ways to make card towers and made things with links!
