Martha's First Class are having great fun this week learning about magnets. Yesterday we did an investigation in our classroom to see what objects are attracted to magnets. We then used our knowledge of magnets to create a variety of mazes and games. Magnets are magnificent!
We have been having loads of fun and doing lots of learning this autumn in 1st Class.
In our Maths lessons, we learned all about data representation. We carried out surveys and created a number of different graphs to show our data. Have a look at our block graphs that show the most popular activities in our class during our weekly Golden Time.
We also learned about 2D shapes. As part of our learning, we created monsters using 2D shapes. First we designed our monsters by drawing them and then we built them using colourful paper.
During our SPHE and Learn Together lessons, we have been learning about our feelings and our wonderful qualities. We created these art pieces to describe ourselves.
In History, we learned about traditional Irish cottages. We learned the parts of the cottage and what materials were used to build them. We also learned all about the festival of Halloween and its traditions. We carved a class pumpkin and created our own Halloween decorations.
We have been doing lots and lots of art projects. Have a look at our self portraits and our scratch art pictures. We created our scratch art pictures by first colouring a blank page with bright crayon, then painting it black and finally scratching off the black paint once it had dried.
We have been doing lots of writing during our English and Irish lessons and have been enjoying sharing our work with our friends in the class.
In our Science lessons, we learned about the hedgehog. We found out lots of information about hedgehogs and made our own hedgehogs using our hand prints to create the spines.
What a great term so far!
