We were very busy in room 14 in December! Here are a selection of pictures from some of the events that took place last month. The boys and girls enjoyed taking part in the Winter Walk on campus.
We worked very hard preparing for our Christmas play. Thank you to all the parents for helping with costumes and learning lines. We practised on the stage, with a pianist and we had a dress rehearsal. The children put on a super show!
Thank you to parents who sent in pictures and videos of the play. On the last day of school we had popcorn and enjoyed a screening of our show. It was lovely for the children to see the show from the audience's perspective.
One day in December, the class was returning from the hall when a few snowflakes fell! We were all very excited! The snow inspired many creative stories during writing workshop time that day.
We covered a lot in school in December. The boys and girls learned about toys in the past in history. You could tell them about your favourite toys when you were a child. We played with some toys from the past at an Aistear station, including Christmas snap, stacking dolls, jenga, dominos etc. We explored magnetism. In maths we carried out work on properties of shapes- in the pictures, the children are working out what the shape could be given the clues and justifying their answers. Parents came in to read Christmas stories to us. We also saw a very funny puppet show!
