This week has been a hive of activity in room five as our Aistear stations got underway, and boy did we have fun! Through our play we are learning about sound experiments in science and discovering our inner composer at the piano station. Our school community expanded to include the caretakers workroom and Gwen's office for role-play. And Junk Art was full of enthuastic music instrument creations. Check out this article about play and learning, I think you'll find it very interesting and something I feel very passionate about.
This week's Book Fair was a big success! I hope everyone got a chance to pick up something nice.
Our maths rhyme this week was five little ducks. Check out the video below and enjoy listening to your child sing along.
I just caught the end of Ms O'Brien's five little ducks lesson. Very cute!
The children had great fun during their art lesson today using marbles to create our very own Jackson Pollock influenced paintings. Make sure you check them out on the display boards outside our classroom next week.
Language Towards Literacy groups are teaching all the language assocoated with the school community. We have also been taking lovely tours around the school and getting to know our school surroundings.
I hope everyone enjoyed their homework sheet this week. There is a super Jolly Phonics App you can get for smart phones. It can be downloaded from your app store on your phones. The kids love it and it has all the songs and actions we do every day. Below is just a few samples of the great work children did for their homework. Also a fantastic rendition of their Autumn Leaves poem with lots of creative actions!
Well done everyone... have a great weekend! And don't forget to encourage the children to chat with you about their favourite part of the week and then you can help them to write it in a comment on the blog... and of course earn themselves a gold star!!
