Hello New Term!
First thing Monday morning we moved places, which was fun as some of us are in a new pod or a new seat. We painted autumn trees during our art lesson on Monday as there are beautiful coloured trees all around us at the moment. We listened to a variety of different pieces of music from films and we drew what we imagined and visualised. This week we are being very mindful of everything we taste and touch from our lunches. We ate silently which was relaxing and totally different. We are very good at it! We played soccer and hockey at PE. We focused on passing in hockey.
In English we read about earthquakes, in Core Curriculum we are continuing our study of Islam, in SESE we are starting our Mayan projects and we are working hard at our division tables for long division in maths. On Thursday we did a surprise fire drill that went well and in other news the front door is now fixed but we are not using it yet as it’s not fully ready.
We had a fun and busy week this week .
We started fractions in maths this week. They are hard but we are getting the hang of it. We were simpliflying, adding, subtracting and dealing with mixed numbers.
For art we were cutting out pieces of coloured paper and sticking them on a piece of white paper to make tessellations. We had a great time. We continued on our positive affirmations.
We started learning counting stars in Gaeilge. It was very fun and it wasn't too hard.
We were doing persuasive writing in English and wrote speeches on what school job we would want.
In P.E this week we played hockey and soccer but it was freezing, and we had great fun.
We studied the physical geography of Africa and Australia and drew maps and marked famous landmarks.
We finished our class novel, ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’, watched the movie and made covers.
This week Limor in our class took part in the U12 World Championships in Irish dancing. She came 7th in the solo jig. What an amazing achievement, we are so proud of her!!
Have a great weekend!!!
