First Class have been really busy this term. They have worked extremely hard and have had lots of fun along the way. They celebrated the raising of the Amber Flag and Active School Flag by running a lap of the school with Olympian, Aoife O’Rourke. She is a real inspiration!
On 6 th October, First Class took part in a Fossil Hunt with Martin Curley. We learned about how fossils are formed and about different types of fossils. We searched for fossils in the local area. We really enjoyed exploring and recording our discoveries.
We learned all about the signs of Autumn this term. We learned about the oak tree, deciduous trees and bats. We discussed different types of weather and the effect flooding can have on an area. We also monitored and recorded the weather for one week. We even took turns to do weather reports in front of the class. We have some future meteorologists in our midst!
During Maths Week, we took part in lots of fun Maths activities. We made amazing 2D shape
pictures, played shape bingo and built wonderful creations using 3D blocks. We took part in an outdoor Maths Trail. We learned about how we can use tally marks to record information. We found out how many vehicles passed the school over a 10 minute period.
The First Class children have created beautiful Art and Crafts.
They are busy doing projects as well!
