💥💥Middle Room – November 22💥💥

November30

The excitement is building for Christmas for sure and word on the street is the elves are slowly making their way to certain homes 🧐We have tried to keep the focus despite the excitement that the Toy show brought. It really is  a special time of year.😊 The children have been busy learning about Africa in History and Geography. It was really interesting to compare our lives to the lives of the Masai Tribe and the children enjoyed making their African Necklaces. (pictures to follow) We all loved learning about Nelson Mandela and the difference he has made to the lives of black people in History and this present day. The boys and girls also did a little research on their World Cup country just for fun which resulted in múinteoir and children alike learning a little something about 21 countries. For science week the children explored their reaction times and they also participated in a number of SPHE lessons for anti bullying week. We really enjoyed ODD sock day which reminds us that we are all different but we are all equal. We welcomed our little mascot Mick to our circle times.

In PE our focus has been athletics, although at times hampered by the weather.

It was lovely to explore the Bookfair while present in the hall and we are continuing our class Novel The Witches. Children enjoy Predicting, Making Connections and Questioning during novel time and regularly ask for more!!!.  We even had some children quite suspicious of staff members possibly presenting themselves as perfectly normal ladies all the while being nasty, ghastly witches underneath. Watch out for those pointy shoes, gloves and blue tinged teeth!!!

In Maths Rang a dó are working on regrouping and mental maths while Rang  a3 continue to work on multiplication and division.  As gaeilge, bhí an spórt againn ag staidear an téama Bia. Bhíomar ag cleachtadh conas ceisteanna a chur bunaithe ar an topaic agus bhí go leor cluichí againn. Bhí seans ag na pháistí a bhiachlár féin a scríobh freisin.

We continue to learn our poems each week which we regularly revise in class also. Drama has been lots of fun as were our Music lessons. The children created a storm using their body percussion which was hugely effective. We also discussed pitch and tempo. Tin whistle lessons continue and we look forward to performing with the whole school at the school concert on the 20th December.

 

Well done to the boys and girls who received special awards from the Kilcommon GAA Club. We are very proud of you all and indeed all the boys and girls in the school!
