This term the Green schools held a socially distanced meeting in the school hall. We discussed our theme of Global Citizenship and Marine Environments. We also discussed our ongoing energy monitoring, re-visiting our policy on recycling in order to maximise it’s effectiveness and we discussed the possibility of a new bio-diversity garden to the rear of the senior playground.
If any of our school community would like to get involved in any of these projects, please give Paul a ring at school.
We gathered recyclable materials in Silver this week and used them to make different sounds. We enjoyed making quite a racket!!!!
Since returning to school Black class have been extremely busy looking at our new unit of sound. We have been out and about in Sligo identifying the natural sounds around us, in the class room making art through the use of sound, classifying sounds and relating them to our feelings and colours and listening to the different sound that can be made when cooking.
Apart from sound we have also made phone calls to book tables in restaurants, followed instructions in cookery to make some culinary delights, learnt how to identify the key features of a utility bill and the vocabulary around them and identified 2D shapes and their properties.
We also had an individual achievement in Black class recently, with a student eating for the first time in school. We are all so proud of you.
We have been having a fantastic time exploring sounds in purple class!
We have listened to music and decided if we wanted to turn the volume up or down during our predictable chart writing. We have also been working really hard on our communication using our project core boards. We have been exploring a variety of musical instruments and exploring the class environment to see if we could find objects that would make sound. We really enjoyed recording the sounds we made and listening back to them. We were excited to discover the multitude of sounds we could make using the same items! We have explored loud and quiet sounds as well as listening to sounds around us while out on our community outings.
We have been very busy in Navy Class since returning to school. The first term was spent focusing on the theme ‘All About Me’. We did lots of sensory work, body awareness, and dance and movement in PE.
This term we are focusing on the theme of ‘Sounds’. We have explored many different things that make sounds, we have shaken, hit and dropped items to see what sort of sounds they make, we even incorporated sounds into our messy play. We half filled balloons with water, dipped them in paint and dropped them to see what pattern it would leave and what sound it would make. Check out the results. On Tuesdays we have our community outing, and so far we have been very lucky with the weather. This week we went for a lovely walk along the shore of the lake at Doorley Park.
In Blue class, we have been exploring and creating different types of sounds. We have been discovering which musical instruments make soft sounds and which make loud sounds. We have been making our own musical instruments, including drums and investigating what happens when we exert different amounts of force on them. We have been making requests to stop and start music.
We enjoyed taking part in our class assembly and watching back our performances!
