1st, 2nd and 3rd Class 2022 - 2023 

1 st , 2 nd and 3 rd class have had a very busy half term.


Art
We focused on Autumn and painted and constructed some lovely Autumn trees with coloured paper
and paint. We also went outside to collect some leaves from our school yard and we did some leaf
prints with these. They have brightened up our classroom so much.
In History, we were reading the story ‘The Children of Lir’ so to integrate art and history we decided
to construct some beautiful swans using white paper to finish our learning on this wonderful myth
and legend.
We also looked at colour mixing and how if we mix certain colours they make another colour. The
children were very busy mixing and making some lovely shades of colours and we created a beautiful
eye with our colour wheel.
As Halloween is fast approaching the children created some creepy haunted houses and painted a
white sheet with a spooky moon so they could have a nice backdrop for their haunted house. There
was some wonderfully, wacky looking houses being created.


P.E
We were really lucky this half term to have had ‘The Bike Wizard’ visit our school. The children all
really enjoyed cycling and playing games on their bikes and some children learned how to cycle. We
have been focusing on throwing and catching in P.E, so the children have been playing some team
games and games like basketball and handball to practice the throwing and catching skill.

Irish
The children have been working really hard on their Gaeilge this term. We have played some games
like snakes and ladders and 4 in a row to help us practice new words and phrases that we are
learning. We have also been learning a dance called ‘Shoe the donkey’ through Irish. We have such
wonderful Irish dancers in 1 st ,2 nd and 3 rd class.


Maths
We engaged in maths week where we played some new games like ‘pig’ and ‘24’ and we even tried
some tricky puzzles to challenge our minds. We used the ipads and laptops to play some maths
games on lovely maths websites. The children enjoyed practicing their tables on these websites and
challenging their friends at tables. We ended maths week with some art. The children used circles
to create their own circles picture using coloured paper. The colours were very eye catching.


SESE
We have been working really hard learning about Ireland’s four provinces and the counties within
each province. The children have amazed me at how many counties they can name in each

province off by heart. We have also been using the ipads and laptops to research bats and we have
been finding out so many interesting and fun facts about bats. They are amazing little creatures.
