Here is a slideshow of photos we took on our school tour at Dublin Zoo.
Today we had a surprise visit from Aiden, Aqif and Maks. They worked very hard on their construction work today and they came to show us their work. Aqif made a tower and Aiden made a robot. Maks came to help them. Adif and Adam were very happy that their brothers came to visit us.
On Wednesday we took a trip to the golf course with senior infants. We had a lot of fun finding frogs in the long grass. First class are excellent mini beast spotters. We enjoyed trekking through the long grass and spotting ladybirds and bees along the way. We learned about the life cycle of the dandelion this year and we found a lot of dandelions on the golf course.
The after school drama group came to our classroom to perform their play "Welcome to Wonderland". Shonagh and Nicolau from first class joined Riskat, Sureya, Raneem and Jessie from second class along with their drama teacher Adrienne. They did an excellent performance and we were really impressed with all the lines they had learned off by heart. Well done!
First class have been enjoying learning directions, planning and sequencing with the bee bots. Today we took the bee bots out to the yard to enjoy the lovely sunny weather. We worked in groups to develop pathways for the bee bots. Then we had to program the bee bot to follow the path by working together to come up with a sequence. We had a lot of FUN while also using our problem solving skills and maths skills!!
