We hope you enjoy looking at the products of all our hard work. We are very busy so we will be adding more throughout the year. Make sure you check this page regularly for details and pictures of all the fun activities we enjoy in our class. Lots of exciting new work to follow…..
We visited Tralee Bay Wetlands Centre. The Water-Beast Hunt, Scavenger Hunt, Frog-Finding Exhibition and Pedalo Boating were some of the exciting activities we participated in. Here are some photographs from an action-packed school tour:
Aistear Task: Design a boat that can float in water.
Our School Garden: We learned how the Biodiversity Area in our school helps the bees. Guest speakers helped us to identify the Queen Bee in the hive! Can you find the yellow spot?
Station Teaching: Using a variety of board games we developed thinking, spelling and reading skills.
Linking Maths to Aistear we had great fun designing, drawing and painting our "Shape Fish".
For healthy eating week we sampled a variety of fruit. We met Mr. Apple and Ms. Strawberry. We learned the importance of staying fit and healthy and practised our football skills.
Our Aistear theme was Sports. We explored a variety of stations and carried out project work which we displayed for the whole school.
We explored the theme of 'The Doctor'. We had great fun learning about the medical profession, sharing ideas and designing our own hospitals which even included South Doc offices and a playground!
Our Aistear theme was 'The Farm'. Here are a few photographs of our favourite stations.
Work work work! Fun fun fun!
We enjoyed exploring the theme of The Post Office in Aistear. We worked in the Oral language Dress-Up Area, Small World, Construction, Maths, Writing, Sand, Play Dough and Art stations.
In November we visited Siamsa Tíre, Tralee to see the wonderful production of 'The Ugly Duckling'. We met Mrs. Duck before the show. The production was similar to the story we read in class. We had a great day out with our friends.
