This week we've been learning about the capital city of China - Beijing! We've learned about it's population, currency and looked at lots of pictures. Then we made our own Beijing skyline. First we painted the sky, then we made buildings using black paper and oil pastels, then we put them all together. We hope you like our work!
This month in the Chestnut Class we are learning all about China! We read the story 'Lin Yi's Lantern' last week and today we made our own lanterns! We folded and cut the card ourselves, and then decorated them with crayons and glitter!
I've put together this short video to show some of what we got up to on Friday at Causey Farm. I hope all the children had a great day out at the farm!
We are learning about the bus in class at the moment! Today we talked about all the different places we can travel to on the bus. We thought of: the zoo, cinema, shopping centre, friend's house, beach, park, farm and castle!Then we sat down and planned out our own town that we can use for our Aistear play next week. It was a whole class effort and we're super proud of it. We'll share the finished product with you next week!
Well done to our Green Table who got the most points this week! A big congratulations to our Handwriting Award winner also!
Today the Chestnut Class did a spirited performance of the classic tune 'The Wheels on the Bus'. We also got to show off our bus that we made during the week!
We were very lucky to have Redwood Class visit us last week during Book Week! They sat with us and read us lots of stories. We had such a good time meeting some new boys and girls in our schools and hearing some exciting stories!
On Tuesday morning in the Chestnut Class, we took part in some science experiments. We were investigating floating and sinking, magnetism and basic coding using our Bee Bots! We all got to try all the different experiements and had a great time!
Today Garda Daire came back to visit us and give out awards for the colouring competition! We had 3 winners of the competition (Chinmay, Mia and Sara) but everyone in the class got their own Garda badge!
