Our classes were very busy this January! We were lucky enough to host the school assembly and show the rest of the school what we have been up to.
In January one of our favourite activities was creating clay monsters and painting them different colours. We think they turned out great!
We learned a lot about emigration and the famine in Ireland. We read a novel called Under the Hawthorn tree and did some activities based on that including drama, art and diary entries. We found it really interesting to learn about how different life was years ago even though it was really sad. We also did some projects about Ellis Island using chromebooks to research and create the projects on Google Slides. We have been really enjoying using chromebooks and iPads to do research and create projects this school year. It was great to use our IT skills that we learned with Robert.
Both classes were very musical in January. We also began ukulele in January! It is hard to believe we only started a month ago as already we know 4 chords and different strumming patterns. It is definitely challenging but practice makes perfect. We also learned a song by Bruno Mars called ‘Count on Me’ which we performed lámh signs to. We performed this song at our assembly. We can also now say the days of the week in lámh.
We have so many exciting things coming up later in the year including learning ISL (Irish Sign Language), more ukulele, some science challenges and lots more. Stay tuned!
