Today was all about patterns in the Chestnut Class! We are practicing making patterns using 2 colours and were using lots of different materials to make our patterns.
Congratulations to the Blue Table who won Table of the Week this week! They won the award for amazing group work, for getting organised really quickly after eating, and for great listening!
Today we started using all the leaves we gathered in the forest school! We used glue and the leaves to make our hedgehogs look all spikey! We will share pictures of them next week when they're all dry!
We have been talking about DLD Day today in the Chestnut Class. DLD affects about 2 children in every classroom and can make talking and listening difficult. To help increase awareness in our school and local community, we are marking today as DLD day. We spoke about it during assembly this morning and then we went on a walk to visit our DLD board and bring our Chestnut Class balloon out to the front of the school. By 11:30am the front of our school will have lots of different purple and yellow balloons to mark the day! Some of us are also wearing purple and yellow clothing today to raise awareness!
Today we were talking about homes that animals live in. We looked at different pictures and how they make their homes. We then talked about hedgehogs and where they live. It's nearly time for them to go into hibernation so we decided to make our own hedgehogs. We went to the forest school and collected lots of leaves from the ground. We are going to use those to make hedgehog art tomorrow! We can wait to show you our finished art projects!
Our new Aistear Theme is all about the home! We are learning about different rooms in our homes and the different things that we do in them! We are making homes using different shapes also!
We were super lucky today to have a PETNS parent volunteer to do a Zoom yoga class with us today! Aisling guided us through some super fun yoga and we had a wonderful time! Thank you Aisling!
