1st & 2nd Class
We welcomed Adam into St. John’s in 1st Class this year and we hope he enjoys his time with us.
We really enjoyed our 6 weeks swimming which has just finished.
1st Class have joined us in their first Library visits, they have enjoyed picking out new books, and we will be going every 3 weeks.
On 23rd October we took part in an Eco art recycling workshop. The theme was Hallowe’en and was great fun for everyone.
1st and 2nd class have enjoyed learning about the different types of trees that grow in Ireland and how they change during each season. They studied the animals that live in the trees such as squirrels and birds. The class particularly loved going to Corkagh Park where they identifed some trees and picked leaves and berries. They then created some colourful leaf rubbings from the leaves collected on the walk.
They are also having fun listening to Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl. We began reading the story this month to celebrate Roald Dahl day on the 13th September. Each child has created a fact profile for Mr. Fox.
