World Book Day

On the 2nd March we celebrated world book day. We all got to wear our pyjamas to school or else we could dress up as a character from our favourite book. We had such a great day. We spent the day reading books and writing about our favourite books. Teacher said we could bring in our favourite book too, each class got the chance to go up to the old computer room where we got to sit on cushions and read our books to each other. 

Teacher even wore her pyjamas to school! Here is a picture of our whole class in our pyjamas and costumes on World Book Day.

Travel and Trasnport

Our theme for February was Travel and Transport. We learned all about the different types of transport that exist in our world. We learned all about cars, trucks. buses, aeroplanes and even hot air balloons! We then talked about old and new transport. We looked at pictures and had to decide whether it was old or new. Here are some pictures of us sorting our pictures in to old and new transport.

We also sorted transport in to whether they are land, air, track or sea transport. Here we are sorting our transport pictures in to land, air, sea or tracks. We all decided that trains and trams travel on tracks buses, cars, motorbikes and bikes travel on land, Boats, submarines and canoes travel on the water and that helicopter, aeroplanes and hot air balloons travel in the sky.

We also set up our very own airport in our classroom as part of our Role Play Area for Aistear. We then invited Treasa in to talk to our class about working the airport. Treasa works in the airport for an airline called Are Lingus. She spoke to us all about checking in everyones bag, printing out their tickets and talking about how the airport works.

10 10 10

On the 10th of February at 10 o'clock our whole school went outside to the yard to take part in 10 minutes of exercise as part of  Operation Transformation. All classes from Junior Infants to 6th class went out to the yard. The senior classes did laps of the senior yard while the Junior an Senior Infants all stood in a circle and completed various exercises such as marching,lunges, jumping jacks and high knees! We had such a great time. Here are some photos of us out in the yard that morning.

Room 1 2 and 3 still do our exercises in the yard every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday mornings.
