We learned about the church in religion. We went to visit the church and we looked at the altar, the stained glass windows, the candles, bible, baptismal font and tabernacle. Then we coloured a picture of the church, we sketched the church in our copies using our clip boards because it was a lovely sunny day outside and we wrote a sentence in our copies 'We went to the church.'. We are getting so good at our writing and teacher is really proud of us.
During morning activities and aistear we played with 3d shapes and decided which shapes could roll and stack and we had fun building with the 3d shapes. We wrote the different people who help us and the different buildings in our locality in our writing box. We did a read write and draw activity and a worksheet to practice our cvc words.We had fun in the doctors surgery in our role play area. We played with the buildings and people for small world activity. We had fun with junk art and we made a cat jigsaw for our cutting activity. We created beautiful sea creatures and we had fun with free painting - we painted the different people who help us. We did some wonderful blow painting. We used the three primary colours red, blue and yellow and we made some new colours - orange, green, purple. When we were finished we got a pencil and did some pencil embellishment onto our paintings. We kept turning the page round to see what our paintings reminded us of and what we could see in the paintings. We did a great job.
We loved active schools week. We were split into teams with all the other boys and girls from junior infants to first class.
