This week is National Bike Week. On Thursday everyone in Rang a Cúig tried to cycle into school if we could. On other days other classes cycled into school. We also recorded how far we cycled each day - so far Rang a Cúig have cycled over 200 km.
For art last Friday our class made ‘Behind the Mask’ pictures - you can see these below in our images. The art was folded so that you could flip it in and out so it looked like we were taking the mask ‘on’ and ‘off’. On the side where the mask is ‘off’ we wrote and decorated some of our many positive personality traits. This week we did shape art. You can also see this below. We cut out shapes from card and then we held the shape down on another piece of card and painted over it, being careful not to move the shape. We were left with lovely colourful pictures with a white shape in the centre.
This week in maths we worked on Operations. We practiced adding and subtracting big numbers. In P.E. we practised different types of throwing. Then we played a few games of dodgeball to practice our new found skills. P.E was really fun this week and we got some extra P.E. time as a reward for our great work so far in Rang a Cúig.
Another great week in Rang a Sé!
We've started on the maths topic of addition and subtraction and we’re doing very well! We also did very well in our maths test last Friday!
As well as our maths, on Friday we made paper plate willow designs as we are learning about ancient China in history and geography. We are all enjoying learning about ancient Chinese culture, art, and the geography of the country.
In English this week we've been learning about recount writing and we are writing some made-up news articles to practice writing a recount piece.
But it's not just English and maths we've been working hard on, we are also doing great in our Gaeilge frasaí agus gramadach! We’re learning new phrases and learning all about how to speak and write in the present tense.
This week we found out the names of our buddies and we made videos for them introducing ourselves, we are so excited!
We had a really competitive game of Dodgeball in PE as we worked on our throwing and catching skills. The game lasted nearly half an hour as neither team could get everyone out. It was so much fun!
We have settled into Rang a Sé very well, and are excited for the year ahead of us! Slán!
