1st Class Update February 2024

By 21st February 2024First Class

We’ve had a great couple months in 1st Class. In English we have been learning all about report and recount writing.  We have been learning our cursive writing and have nearly learned all the letters. In phonics the class have made great progress working on magic e words and have improved a lot using the spelling rule in their writing.

In maths we have covered lots of topics, some which are new for 1st class such as tens and units and subtraction! The boys and girls have done so well with these.

In Gaeilge (Irish) we have explored so many topics and the class have enjoyed learning all the new words and are beginning to using them in sentences. They love the songs and games and even sang one of the songs at assembly for the school!

In SESE (geography, history and science) we have learned about loads of topics such as play, feasts and festivals and weather and space. They even conducted an experiment to test different slope sizes and how fast a toy car can go.

In music we have been exploring rhythm and pulse lately and the class are great at this!

In Learn Together we have looked at a range of core values such as respect and love and kindness. We had a great Healthy Eating Week where the class got to try lots of yummy fruits and vegetables. We have discussed lots of ways to look after our planet and learned our new Green Schools Moto.

We also had a great library trip and look forward to the next one!
