Emer’s Class

Here is some of our September art so far! We have been very busy and creative into our first month of second class. We used oil pastels to create Modigliani inspired self portraits and also learned how to paper quill and create autumn trees.

Fyffes Fit Squad 28/09/23: Sharon and Fionn from Fyffes Fit Squad visited us today. We took part in a workout in the hall and received bananas and inflatable bananas for our hard work. Make sure to practice your exercises at home, it’s a great way to stay active. Well done everyone!

Maths Week 17/10/23: Today we got creative and explored making patterns with chalk. We tried some on our own and in groups. Each pattern was unique and different. Great work everyone!

Maths Week 19/10/23: Today we participated in a maths week quiz on zoom along with over 500 different schools around Ireland. We communicated and worked together in groups and as a whole class to solve the problems.

Maths Week 20/10/23: Today we practiced sorting, grouping and recording data using skittles. We have been learning about data and how to create block graphs to demonstrate information. What better a way to practice than with skittles as a Friday treat!

Magic Potions 27/10/23: On Friday our classroom turned into a potion making wonderland. With costumes and bubbling concoctions, the children explored the wonders of chemistry using baking soda and vinegar.

BeeBots 16/11/23: Today we used BeeBots as an introduction to programming and computational thinking for the children. The children took turns trying to navigate the BeeBots around the mat. Bee Bots allow the children to explore colours, shapes, geography, language, mathematics, technology and science. We had great fun!
