Ms Casey’s Class

Measuring in Maths!

We have been busy learning about length in maths. We worked in pairs outside, estimating and measuring with a metre of wool. Have a look at what we got up to…

Smoothie Time!

We made some delicious, healthy,  yummy, pink smoothies today for breakfast! Can you spot the adjectives, which we’ve been learning about?

When we finished making and tasting the smoothies, we got busy practising our procedural writing by writing up the smoothie recipe!

 

 

 

World Book Day 7/3/19

We had lots of fun dressing up as our favourite characters from the books that we love. Have a look at our costumes!

 

Coicís na Gaeilge

We are having lots of fun celebrating Coicís na Gaeilge. We have been practising lots of Irish dancing for the céilí next week. We learned two songs, Trasna na dTonnta and “This is Me” as Gaeilge. We loved performing them at the ceolchoirm last week.

Planting and Growing

We planted Cornflower seeds.  We learned that all plants need sunlight, water and soil to grow.

Making Butter!

We learned about how butter was made long ago. We used all of our our muscles to shake up jars of cream. We then tasted our homemade butter on crackers!

Máirt na bPancóga

We celebrated Pancake Tuesday by writing pancake recipes, and of course we had to taste them too!!

Maths 

In maths, we are have been learning about capacity. We experimented with pasta, rice, water and sand. We filled lots of different sized containers. We really enjoyed making potions with coloured liquids. We also learned about the litre.

 

Art

We are so lucky to have Ms. Curtis in with us for the next 3 weeks. She has been doing lots of fun things with our class. Have a look at the art we did, inspired by the artist Wayne Thiebaud! We decorated cupcakes using lots of brightly coloured materials.
