Outdoor Learning

We took our learning to the outdoors during the recent good weather, with a community outing to Rosses Point beach.  We worked on aquatics through gaining more confidence in the water – this was difficult seeing how cold the Atlantic is! and we wrote our names in the sand.  We even found seaweed of different colours and textures and counted the legs on a dead crab.  Who could have imagined the learning that goes on at the beach.

We are expert vets!

This term we have set up our Aistear play area as a veterinary surgery. Recently, we went on our community outing to a local vets named St. Benedict’s. They let us interview the staff, explore the surgery room and feed their work dog treats. We had great fun learning about injections, weighing scales and animals emotions. As a result of  this visit, we will be experts at playing the role of a vet in our Aistear play area. Thank you St. Benedict’s 🙂 This visit was so valuable to the children’s learning as we are investigating animals, learning about weight, telling the time and receptive to other peoples emotions.

This term in Red class we have been learning all about growing. We have sowed some seeds, we have been learning about how we grow and we took a walk around the school to find out if we could see any signs of things growing. Here are some of the things we found.

Watching everything GROW!!

As part of our growing theme Orange class took a trip to Homeland and went out into the garden centre to look at all the flowers and trees that are growing. We had great fun smelling all the different flowers and looking at all the colours. We followed this up with a visit to the pet centre and saw all the baby animals. We even got to pet a rabbit!!

Dining out!

Pink class were rewarded for their hugely successful Reindeer mini company with a trip to Davis’s restaurant. In the run up to Christmas students made and sold reindeer bags filled with delicious hot chocolate and marshmallows. We had a vote and decided that the best way to spend our profits would be to go for a lovely meal together. We checked out the menu online and students played an active role in the process; ringing to book the table, choosing favorite foods and desserts and paying for the meal and checking the receipt. We had a fabulous time and look forward to our next excursion!

How lovely your garden grows!

Purple Class headed to Homeland for a Community based outing and also to further explore our new theme of Growing. We went out into the garden centre and founds lots of flowers and we discovered trees that were starting to grow new buds. As we headed indoors we explored the seed potatoes and onions, having a good feel and smell and then a quick trip to see what animals were for sale.
