This week has been another busy one and we started some brand new things! Our teacher gave us all an Irish book on Monday and we had to practice reading them in preparation for reading them to Rang 2 on Thursday. It was very exciting when we went up to Rang 2 to read to our reading buddies there. The teachers split the class up with some people reading in our classroom and some doing it in the Rang 2 room. We really enjoyed interacting with another class and trying out our reading “as Gaeilge”. The pictures helped to tell the story also!
The other new thing this week was we started doing a project. This one is about an animal of our choice. We were delighted, as Ms Nic a Bhaird allowed us to choose who we worked with! We have to look at our chosen animal’s environment, adaptations, life-cycle etc. It’s such good fun working with friends.
Two of our class members, Nell and Julian, attended an important meeting on Thursday with other pupils, teachers and people who are involved with revising our curriculum. They helped to share their ideas with two other schools and important people from the Department of Education.
Finally, PE was fun in the sun, and we played DodgeBall and Alphabet. Ms Bradley was teaching us. We are hoping the sun keeps shining as we head into the weekend!
