We love Maths in our class and today we did maths games to help us to improve our mental maths even further. We played card games, fraction dominoes, multiplication bingo, tables games and fraction lotto.
We welcomed many of our grandparents to our school today. We performed a short drama in Irish for them, we played some tunes, some of us danced a set before we played card games together. Mary Angela's grandad even played a tune for us. Fr, Damien gave all the grandparents a special blessing as well as celebrating the Feast of St. Blaise with us by blessing our throats. We enjoyed seeing our grandparents in our classroom!
For the past few weeks, lots of pupils in our school have been bringing in artifacts and showing them to each class. We are finding it very interesting to talk about when the artifact was used, how it was used and how old it is. Thanks to everyone who has brought items in so far!
We have been practising our hurling and camogie skills for the past few weeks. As well as taking part in the indoor hurling and camogie competitions, we have been training each week in school. When the weather doesn't allow us to get out, we play hockey in the hall.
Today Josephine told us the Parable of the Sower. It was very interesting to listen to our different opinions about the story.
We learned about the many traditions associated with St. Brigid's Day. We read accounts of people from long ago and we learned about St. Brigid's life. We were fortunate that Mary Angela and Conor remembered to bring in rushes so that we could make our own St. Brigid's crosses!
This week, we focussed on drawing during our Visual Arts class. We drew animals that you would see in Ireland during the winter months.
We welcomed Catherine from the Road Safety Authority to our school today. Catherine discussed the many aspects of road safety with us. We learned about pedestrian, cyclist and vehicle safety. Hopefully, we will all remember and practise road safety at all times.
