Eating Healthy is very important. Food is fuel for our bodies. Food gives our bodies energy to do lots of things.
We love to eat lots of fruit and vegetables.

We have been learning all about the story of bread.
How do we get flour?
What is the job of a baker?
How does bread make it to the shop shelves?
We decided we needed to BAKE some bread and then we needed to TASTE the bread. YUM YUM!!!

Static Electricity ..... We transferred electrons onto the balloon and pen. Watch the magic force attract the tissue paper.
Carving our pumpkin........ What a messy but enjoyable job.

CELEBRATING MATHS WEEK 2015
We celebrated Maths week by going on a Maths Trail around our school. We worked in small groups. We followed the clue on the outside of our envelope and when we reached our destination we completed our Maths challenge that was inside.
It was soooooo much fun.
We use Maths everyday and it is so important.
Aistear Play Time!!
We had a lovely morning in school. We took part in our Aistear play time. Aistear time is learning through constructive play.
Learning through play is lots of fun!!
Autumn is here. We are learning all about Autumn in our classroom. We have begun hunting for Autumn treasures. If you find an Autumn treasure please bring it to school for our "Autumn Investigation Station".

What budding Artists!
We created such beautiful paintings!! We used lovely bright colours. :)
We have had a wonderful time learning more about our families.
Maths: Matching Fun
Do they look the same? Do they belong together? Have they the same pattern? Are they the same colour? Are they a pair?
Who knew matching socks would be so much fun and we'd have a great time discussing patterns.
We get up to many different things in our classroom..... keep checking to see what our crafty, creative kiddies are getting up to.
Mirror, Mirror on the wall.
We are special one and all.
I am special, I am me.
There is no one else I'd rather be.

We have been exploring Classical Music.
Flight of the Bumblebee by Nikolai Rimsky- Korsakov
We listened and responded to the music. The music took our pencils on a wonderful adventure. Senior Infants were inspired to create some beautiful pictures on the computer.
The life cycle of the butterfly.
We had great fun learning about the butterfly. We were learning and writing all about butterflies. We also put our scissor skills to the test and cut out some beautiful butterflies.
Check out the Gallery for all the pictures of our School Tour. Here are a few from the Butterfly Garden.
We had a fantastic day and really enjoyed ourselves.
We created some paintings inspired by our trip to Alcorn's Tropical World.
