This month we learned lots about our themes of 'Water' and 'Summer'. We had lots of fun completing different activities, listening to stories and playing with water and sand. You can see some pictures of some of the activities that we did below. This month, we finished our Literacy Lift Off English stations. Everybody made great progress with reading. We also started swimming lessons on Fridays in school.
We learned all about water
In Aistear this fortnight we had lots of fun playing in our aquarium. At the creative station we had fun making bubble prints and water spraying fabric and fibre. At the oral language station, we played fun games all about water safety while at the physical play station, we made sea creatures using playdough.
In maths we learned all about capacity. We explored items that were full and empty. We completed lots of tasks, interactive games and activities based on capacity. It great fun!
In geography we learned all about places that you would find water and how to keep water and environment clean. We learned all about going to the Swimming pool and Barnaby bears trip to Kells swimming pool. We did floating and sinking experiments in science and sequenced the story of The Rainbow Fish in history.

We loved working at the writing station, listening station, phonics and word station and reading station. We even got certificates at the end f Literacy Lift off because we worked so hard.
