This week saw the start of our new topic 'Autumn'. The children got off to a great start on our nature walk around the school grounds to collect all thing autumnal for our aistear play.
What better way to learn than to explore our own wonderful grounds. There are bird feeders, insect hotels and massive sunflower heads that show hundreds of sunflower seeds... a birds' paradise!
We had great fun collecting lots of natural bits for our classroom. Thank you to everyone who brought in beautiful leaves and conkers for our autumn collection.
We used the whole punch to make some nice mini leaves for the trees and also to pour into our small world so the mini people can rake them up again!
In the soil area the children went digging for the hidden conkers... the winner finds the most. They have to count them first!
Fire Safety Week
The video below will give you a giggle but it has an important message for the children about what to do should their clothes ever catch fire...
STOP, DROP AND ROLL!!
