Every Friday 1st Class do “Show and Tell”. They bring in an item of their choice to talk about or else show the class a skill they have been learning.
Ms. Blain’s class had great fun creating many different 2D shape creations, varying from rockets to rollercoasters and birds’ eye view maps to turtles!
The 1st class children in Ms Kiersey’s class were working on aerial view maps. They created road maps in small groups that showed their journey from home to school.
First Class had a great time on our school tour in Pine Forest Art Centre. They spent time out walking in the forest and back in the centre making brilliantly colourful bird magnets which have now flown back to their classrooms.
Brave First Class practising their forward rolls and balancing!
Creative Creatures have been spotted….in the undergrowth of Taney!
Newsflash…..1st class creative creatures have escaped from Ms. Blain’s classroom – please keep your eyes peeled!!!

First Class Flanimals out and about in their natural habitats!
The pupils in Miss Coe’s Fourth Class have been working hard preparing explanations about our sense of “Taste” for Mr. McConnell’s First Class. First they conducted research in the computer room where they discovered and recorded lots of interesting information. Next they planned, edited, redrafted and published their work. There were lots of different designs, colours, diagrams and shapes used during their publishing work and they looked wonderful!
Fourth class had lots of fun delivering their explanations to First Class. They also gave a short quiz to the pupils they were working with and First Class had star pupils all round!
The children took part in the Walk for Water on World Water Day this Thursday and they wore blue to school to symbolise water.
What would it be like to balance a container on your head and walk 6km a day to get water?
In Junior Infants the children balanced books on their heads while walking. In First Class the children tried balancing beanbags while walking in our yard. You have to be very careful and it takes a long time!! We needed to concentrate. We held out our hands to help our balance.
Ms. Blain’s pupils created lots of beautiful artwork to give their Super Mums on Mother’s Day.
First Class were very busy last week prepping for Mother’s Day.
We have been very busy. Firstly we convicted Mr. Wolf of his crimes and sent him to prison! On his escape we created posters to warn everyone! We also helped with the recapture of this fugitive by collecting evidence. We even wrote letters to Mrs. Carpenter to let her know the good news. Mr. W. Wolf is now safely back in Fairytale jail!!!
The eco-warriors of first class have designed posters, making people aware of the dangers of pollution.
In the lead up to Christmas first class created star decoration from lollipop sticks.
How shapes make things! Great fun!!!
2d shape group work using lollipop sticks to make houses, rocket, ferris wheels, etc.
