Sow and Grow

This week we planted some seeds from Sow and Grow! The boys planted cress, baby carrots and runner beans. We are really excited to see them grow! So far, we have some lovely cress sprouting up. Well done to Donnacha for being our Star Grower this week!

2D Shapes

We had some fun in maths this week with 2D shapes. We learned about tessellation and made some funky patterns with our shapes! For art, we used 2D shapes to create Lego men self portraits!

Mindfulness and Yoga

We are so lucky to have started a 6 week programme of mindfulness and yoga here in the senior end of St. David’s!

Spring Art

Have a look at our lovely spring flowers! We started this project last week by painting different tones of Spring colours on pieces of paper. We used pinks, purples, greens, yellows and blues. Once they were dry, we cut out petals and leaves and stuck them all together to make our beautiful flowers!

Maths and Science

We’ve been having great fun in maths and science this week! We learned about weight, mass and gravity. In maths we have been busy estimating and weighing different items around the classroom (even eachother!! :D). In science, we investigated gravity with lots of activities, and then planned and made our own parachutes!

Valentine’s Art

We’ve been working on some great art and cards for Valentine’s Day!

 

Couch to 5K

We are doing couch to 5K training and so far we are really enjoying it!

We have a very exciting few months ahead of us and we are ready to work hard this term. This week, we are talking about our goals for the new year and looking back on all that we achieved in 2016.

Our first goal is to make sure we keep everyone up to date with what’s going on in our classroom on this great new blog! Check back soon to see more!
