1st Class First Class had great fun this week during Science week. On Wednesday, we had a virtual tour with Dublin Zoo where we learned about all the animals they take care of and we got to ask the zookeeper lots of questions. We did a very fun experiment with gummy bears. We predicted what would happen when we put them in water, salt water and vinegar. We were very surprised by some of the results!We also had marble run challenge. Our challenge was to slow down the marble as much as possible using various obstacles such as lollipop sticks, corks and straws. We had great fun designing and testing them First class did some lovely Halloween silhouettes this week. They also enjoyed dressing up in some very cool costumes for dress up day First class were learning all about 2D shapes during Maths week. We went on a 2d shape hunt on the yard and we made some shape pictures too. They were very creative. We also enjoyed playing some maths games! First Class have been learning about Autumn this week. We did some fantastic tree art and we went looking for lovely Autumn leaves in the yard today. First class used straight lines, wavy lines, zig zag lines and all the different types of lines we have been learning about in art to create a rainy day scene. They turned out fantastic! First Class enjoyed Golden Time on Friday after working hard all week 🙂 1st Class had great fun making their ‘All About Me’ balloons. Hi 1st Class! I’m really looking forward to teaching you all. I know that you’re a very kind, caring class and I’m very excited about all the fun thing we are going to do this year.
