Thank You Ms. Zee!

Thanks you to Ms. Zee (Ms. Nikki Zirpoli) who was visiting from America over the past few weeks. Ms. Zee is a student teacher from Slippery Rock College in Pennsylvania and came to work in Scoil Carmel for experience before she graduates next year. It was a pleasure to have her working in the class and teaching the children all about 2D Shapes! We hope she has a lovely Christmas back home with her family and wish her the best of luck in the future as a teacher!

Thank You For Your Generosity!

The response to the Saint Vincent DePaul Hamper appeal has been AMAZING! It has been wonderful to see the children get into the spirit of giving and sharing and helping them to see the importance of thinking of others less fortunate than ourselves. Our class and the school as a whole are a credit to the community for all they contributed to this worthy cause. Tomorrow is the last day to contribute is you have not done so and wish to do.

Aistear – The Christmas Post Office!

We continued with the theme of the Post Office this week but with a Christmas twist! For Junk Art, we wrapped “special” Christmas presents to give to over families! This was great fun sorting out what piece of wrapping paper would fit best and using bubble wrap to make sure our delicate gits would make it home in one piece!! We designed our own stamps and wrote our own postcards to our families to tell them all about our Christmas Concert next Wednesday! We played with Christmas Happyland and made 3 colour pattern candy canes. We had lots of fun!

Aistear – The Post Office

We have been having loads of fun working at the Post Office and learning all about how letters get written and delivered! We wrote letters and drew pictures and then visited the Post Office to buy stamps and envelopes. Then we posted them through the post box and they got delivered to Mrs. Ryan’s room. Her class did the same and we got some lovely pictures and writing from her boys and girls. We also had lots of fun building post boxes and post offices using giant lego!

2D Shapes

We have been learning all about the 2 D shapes – circle, square, triangle and rectangle. We can name how many sides and corners they have and if they are curved or straight! We have also been using our Maths Eyes to find shapes in our lunch boxes and have found extra shapes such as semi circles in our orange pieces and crescents in our bananas! Then we used 2 D shapes to make our very own shape elves! Take a look at our work!

Aistear – The Health Centre

We are really enjoying Aistear this month with the theme of the “Health Centre”. Last week we worked in the doctors surgery, made out or x-rays with chalk and black paper, made ambulances with mobilio and then did a cutting and sticking activity where we organised food into healthy and treat foods.

This week we worked at the dentist’s, we learned about brushing our teeth and designed our own tootbrushes, we built a hospital with duplo and made our own bodies by free cutting body part out of card.
