This week in SPHE we talked about feeling angry. We know that while it’s ok to feel angry it’s important that we never hurt anyone else while we are angry. Mo & Ko suggest if we are angry we can try our ‘slide breathing’ or walk away until we are feeling calmer. In our copies we drew a picture of an angry face!!

Here’s a nice story that we listened to:

‘What’s that smell?”

In science we have been exploring the five senses that our bodies have. On Monday we focused on our sense of smell. We talked about some of our favourite smells and we also gave our least favourite smell which caused alot of laughs!! We learned that smells travel through air into our nostrils and then our brain decides if we like the smell our not. We learned that some smells are soft and others are strong.

We carried our a ‘smell jar’ experiement where we have to smell six different jars which each had a different scent and figure out which jar was which. The scents were soap, coffee, vanilla, peppermint, perfume and orange. The peppermint was the easiest to recognize with soap and perfume being hard to tell apart!

Last week we were exploring the concept of weight. We were using the balance to weigh items and find which one was the heaviest and lightest. We even had to weigh our shoes and socks!! We also got to use the ipads to play fun math games.

Happy Valentine’s Day

We have really been enjoying the fabulous ‘Room on the Broom’ story and it has given us lots of inspiration. Last week we made our own version of the witch, we then used our sequencing skills to make her broomstick with the characters from the story. We also have a small world version of this book for Aistear.

We have been busy making art for our new Halloween Theme for October. We were very proud of our pumpkins. We made them independently without any template. They are all different and that’s why we like them so much!

We had a very busy day. First we had our very first P.E. session in the big hall. Then we went out and explored our school grounds taking advantage of the new path which was created over the summer holidays. We even went off track and explored in the secret wooded area. It was lots of fun!

Our focus for morning activities in September is to help to develop our fine motor skills. Each morning we have a different tray with a new activity. These are great for making our little fingers stronger which in turn will help to develop important skills such as our pencil control & cutting skills.
