End of Term 2!
Wow it is the end of term 2! We have had such a busy few months in our classroom. Here are some snippets from our term.
On April 1st, we went on our first school trip in two years! We travelled on the Luas into town to visit Dublinia museum. There, we learned more about the Vikings and Medieval times in Ireland. It was such good fun!
We learned all about the attitude of gratitude this term. It is important to feel grateful for all of the little things we have in our lives. We decided to write letters to people who are special to us to thank them for different things. It was so nice to deliver our letters!
Earlier in the term, we learned about France during our Geography lessons and we incorporated our learning with our art lessons. We looked at some examples of pointillism art and created our own versions of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
We did a lot of work together this term. We helped each other with reading, writing, maths, gaeilge and other learning. We like to work in pairs and teams in our classroom. We are great at giving each other compliments about learning and tips to make learning even better.
We have done some super reading and writing this term and have made some new displays in our library and corridor.
What a super term! We are looking forward to term 3. We hope that everybody has a safe and fun spring break! :-)
Spreading the Love
We had such a lovely afternoon in our classroom! We have been learning all about restorative practice during our Friendship Keeper lessons. Last week, we learned about love bombing which is when we can surprise people with little bursts of love and kindness. We planned a big love bomb for our teacher Andrea from second class. We prepared cards, messages and posters for her and then invited her to our classroom to surprise her with a big cheer and our gifts! Andrea had a lovely surprise and we really enjoyed spreading love to our community! We can't wait to spread more love and kindness in our community!
Our Friendship Keeper mascot is the giraffe because the giraffe has the biggest heart of all the land animals and a long neck to see things from others' perspectives. Check out our mascots and giraffe drawings.
