Maths - Patterns

This week, we are learning about colour, shape and picture patterns. We are using our 'Maths Eyes' to find patterns around us.

Here is a game we can play at home.

Maths Week

2D shapes were our main focus for Maths Week. We did a 2D shape hunt in our classroom, school and at home.

We also did 'Maths for Fun' with a board game called Face Off. It is a counting and addition game. We enjoyed it.

Autumn Walk

Autumn is here. We went on an autumn walk and took a record of the signs of autumn around us.
In Visual Arts, we printed some leaves on our Autumn trees. We wrote sentences about Autumn in our best handwriting!





Phonics

We are working on our sounds and our middle sounds, especially. These are nice websites that we use at school.


Theme: Our Local Area

The whole school is working on the theme of 'Our Local Area'. We have learned alot about the geography and history of our town and local area. We have brought the theme into our Aistear this past fortnight.

Role-Play Area
We take on roles of people at work in our local area. We are focusing on the doctor's surgery, vets surgery and hairdressers in particular.




Construction Area
The busy builders are building buildings and facilities in our local area. We constructed swimming pools, hotels, football pitches, playgrounds etc.






Computer Area
We played a game called 'Job Mixer'. We read a clue to guess the job and we had to dress the person in the correct uniform.
