Local musicians visited the school to play lovely Irish music for us.
We were painting shamrocks.
And making shamrock biscuits.
Spring art activities.
We had a special birthday boy in our class last month. Happy 9th Birthday Ciarán.
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone. Take care and keep safe.
We all had a very busy October- our topic for the month were Autumn and Halloween, we explored lots of different things we could find in Autumn - we especially liked the pumpkin. We sang lots of songs about Autumn too like Dingle, Dangle Scarecrow, Autumn leaves are falling down and I'm a little scarecrow. We loved the feel of our friend Sammy Scarecrow, he was knitted and felt all soft and squidgy!! Even the work we did fitted into the topic as we traced lines to help leaves fall to the ground.
We also looked at Halloween pictures and found a huge spider that kept crawling onto all our different body parts as part of our SPHE programme.
The children in SCC3 were very busy making Oat cookies. We had to collect all the ingredients from the recipe and then mix them all together. After that we put them onto greaseproof paper and put them in the oven to cook. In the last picture you can see how well they turned out!! We sent them home for all our families to enjoy.
We used shaving foam and glue to make 'puffy' Halloween ghosts. It was great fun and we all loved feeling the paint when it was dry. We then added eyes and a spooky Halloween background.
We also made spider biscuits... we melted chocolate and added strawberry liquorice laces for legs and then added Smarties for eyes. We got to taste the chocolate which was delicious and then brought the finished biscuits home for everybody to enjoy.
During PE we dressed up in witches hats and played with a blow up pumpkin as part of a Halloween obstacle course. We all enjoyed this although it was a little bit scary at times!!
