Sugar skills in Room 1

Room 1 were learning about Dia de los muertos (Day of the Dead). We learned that it is a happy 3 day celebration that starts on Halloween. Skulls are constant emblem of it and they are often seen smiling and “laughing at death”. The skulls are always very colourful so that was our aim!

Procedural writing in Room 1

Room 1 have started learning about procedural writing. Today we instructed Ms Bennett how to make a cheese sandwich. These were the results!! We learned quite quickly how important it is to write detailed instructions. I don’t think anybody would like the first sandwich we made!

Maths in Room 1

In room 1, we’ve been using cards to help us learn. We have used them to play games about greater than and less signs. We took a break to improve our STEM skills and see the different ways we could build towers with the cards!
These are some of  our results!

Movement in Room 1

Room 1 have been getting active using Go Noodle and Just Dance. It’s important to keep moving even if it’s rainy outside!

ipads in Room 1

Room 1 were so excited to use the iPads. We used them to make our learning more fun. We really love mentimeter. It’s a fun way to check what we can remember learning!

Lego Champion in Room 1

Minh in room 1 had a wonderful weekend. He won the first prize in the Dublin Lego competition (6-8 years group). He said it took him two days to build his creation. Maith thú Minh!

Room – exploring the colour wheel

Room 1 explored the colour wheel in art. We looked at primary colours, secondary colours, warm and cool colours. We turned these colour wheels into eyes! You can see them on display as you walk into  school outside room 1.

2nd class assembly

Second class enjoyed a virtual assembly today with Ms Hanrahan. We looked at the school Golden Rules, talked about being a crew and Ms Hanrahan even read us a funny story about not eating your classmates! Thanks Ms Hanrahan!
