History - Stories

In History, we listened to the Greek legend 'Daedalus and Icarus' and Aesop's fable 'The Lion and the Mouse'. Both stories have an important message.

Aistear: Our 5 Senses

In SESE, we are learning about our 5 senses.

'The Opticians' is our roleplay area. We take on the role of optician, secretary and customers. We have an appointment book to fill, customer forms to fill out etc. If a customer needs glasses, we have a selection of frames to try.

We are making glasses. What do you think??!!

Computer Area
We are playing two games to learn about Our Senses.

PBS I Sense

Writing Area
We are writing about things we like to see, hear, taste, smell and touch. We are trying our best to sound out words but ask for help if needed.

Playdough Area
We are excited to have new playdough and cutters this week. We make things we like to see, hear, taste, touch and smell. We also make things linked to The Opticians - glasses, eye chart, mirror etc.

Sunny Days

We are happy to see the lovely sunshine. We had a picnic outside this week.
