Hello everyone! It's great to be back in school together again this week, although it is a little colder. Our theme for the coming fortnight is Food or Bia in Irish. We have been learning about food groups and how important good nutrition is for our growing bodies, bones and teeth . We also discussed how we can access sustainable food in Ireland at our local farmers’ markets and to buy Irish in the supermarkets,
We are also learning about procedural writing in English. This genre of text tells us how to follow steps, and of course as we are learning all about food we are examining and following recipes.
Our focus in art this week is Andy Warhol and in particular his pop art. Our food pop art creations will be here to view next week.
On Thursday the Hindu festival of Diwali began. We re-read the adventurous story of Rama and Sita, and looked at how this festival of lights is celebrated today.
We hope your weekend is filled with light!
