Room 7 is ready and patiently waiting for some new friendly first class faces 😊
Teamwork Makes The Dream Work
Take a look at the impressive teamwork skills the children displayed this week as they worked together to build a fort during Aistear 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
The Glow Up Salon is Open For Business
For this weeks Aistear we have opened a hairdressers in our classroom which we have called The Glow Up Salon. This ties in with our theme of the month, ‘Myself’, and is helping us describe our appearance more accurately, especially our hairstyles! We spent our Aistear time on Monday setting up the hairdressers, thinking of vocab that we needed, setting up and staging our Role play corner and creating labels for our Aistear board! We then had three stations for the reminder of the week which we really enjoyed! At one station we were working hard on color mixing skills as we mixed primary colours to ‘dye’ the wool ponytails that we created. We also designed some very eye catching leaflets for The Glow Up Salon to help us get more customers at another station. And our final station was working in the hairdressers! Take a look:
Ten Out of Ten
We have spent lots of time revising and reinforcing what we know about the number 10 to get us ready for the bigger and bolder numbers that first class has to offer! Take a look at how we used a ten frame to write the Story of 10 independently on our white boards:
The sun came out for some golden time at the playground today! The children have been working hard on having a nice line, being ready when I do a countdown and having a quiet, calm classroom each day to earn this special golden time! We have a trip planned to the Library next!
Artist of the Month
Our class was tasked with learning all about a famous artist for the month of September in our new Artist of the Month challenge. We spent September learning all about our chosen artist, Vincent Van Gogh, and have spent the month analysing his works of art and creating our own works of art inspired by his pieces. Then we created a display so that the rest of the school can come and visit to learn from us now that we are Van Gogh experts! We learned that he usually painted portraits or landscapes and that liked using oil paints, bold colours and small brush strokes. Ms Martin’s class have been given the Artist of the month challenge for October and we are really excited to visit their board at the end of October to learn about their chosen artist. Take a look at our display below and maybe you could be inspired by Van Gogh too!
