Welcome to our class blog!
A big welcome back to all of the children after the Summer holidays. We have had a busy and exciting few weeks here in Room 5.
A lot of the work we have been doing centred around the theme of myself and as part of this we created our own self-portraits. The children did an excellent job!
We spoke about the different things our bodies need to be healthy and designed our very own healthy lunchboxes! The boys and girls have been bringing in lovely, colourful lunches each day.
We explored how we have grown and changed, and identified some of the things that we can do now that we couldn't do back then.
Before reading the story 'The Smallest Whale', the boys and girls discussed the world under the sea. They brainstormed different things that might be found in the ocean and mixed paints to create an under the sea picture. We read the story afterwards and the class made some fantastic predictions both before and during it.
We also read the story 'Tyrannosaurus Drip' which the children really enjoyed. We were inspired after reading it to make some of our own dinosaurs!
We have been really enjoying ourselves so far in First Class, and what a wonderful team we have working together!
Enjoy all our work from Room 5 in St. Oliver's National School!
