October in 1st Class

By 1st November 2022First Class

We had a super October in 1st Class and we did so many fun activities and lots of learning.

As part of SPHE we learned about healthy eating and foods that help boys and girls grow. As part of this lesson the class made healthy sandwiches. They loved making their own sandwich and putting whatever they wanted in it.  They were all so good for trying new vegetables that they hadn’t tried before.


We had such fun for our Halloween Dress Up Day. We played games, listened and danced to Halloween music and did lots of Halloween arts and crafts.

We did lots of great maths and had Maths Week in the middle of October. We have been working on number sentences and addition. We did maths trails and maths games stations which the class loved.

First class have been doing hurling for the last few weeks and got to try football in October which will continue in November.

In English the class are getting more and more confident with their cursive handwriting and writing their news and stories independently. They have been working on remembering their capital letters and full stops in sentences. We have learned about recount and report writing so far.

The boys and girls have been so great with engaging with the choice board on Wednesdays and below are a few photos.

We’ve also fit in some time in the Calm Area outside for some fun bonding time as a class.
