First Class

Fáilte  romhat go Rang a hAon!!!

We’ve been busy learning here in First class!! We’ve just finished Lift Off to Literacy where we got to practise our reading, writing and word work skills.



We went for a Mindfulness walk together. On our walk we used our senses to recognise all the sounds and beautiful nature around us.



Autumn has arrived!!! In first class we made scarecrow men and we also did some leaf hand print Autumn trees. We are reminded of the beautiful colours of Autumn.



We have had a wonderful time in 1st class researching Arctic animals and how they survive in such cold conditions. We also enjoyed creating arctic foxes in our Art lesson.



In Science we discovered that there are many sources of light. We discussed the difference between natural and artificial sources of light. In the poster you can see our lovely artwork of the Northern Lights which we learned are a natural source of light.


In Maths we have been learning to tell the time on an analogue clock.

In our Irish lessons we participated in role play and pretended that we were characters on TG4.


Our behaviour has been very good and we were rewarded with a trip to the playground. We had lots of fun!


Last term we enjoyed Gaelic football training and this term we are very lucky to have begun Gymnastics every Tuesday.
