Yellow Class have really enjoyed exploring and learning about pattern. We started by copying and continuing patterns, then we had a go at making our own. The most fun was looking at photos of patterns around the school and going on a pattern hunt! We found them all eventually, in the strangest places!
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!
Our students in Orange Class have been exploring the theme ‘Sound’.
- To associate sounds with their source.
- To participate in making sounds using a wide variety of homemade and manufactured instruments.
- To participate in experimenting with different ways in which instruments can be played.
- To show interest in and imitate a variety of ways of playing instruments.
We looked at instruments that make a loud sound, such as the accordion and the saxophone. We also explored instruments that make a high pitched sound, such as the tuning forks. We also felt the vibrations of the tuning forks against the resonance board.
White class love their playtimes on the yard. We play football, basketball and badminton. However, Autumn leaves make for a slippy and messy yard, so as part of their Junior Cycle the class took on a very worthwhile task of caring for their immediate environment- the school environment, and tidied up the leaves in the yard. They swept, gathered and disposed of the fallen leaves. All took pride in the work they had done and were delighted to receive Star Pupil certificates for their hard work. Well done White Class.

Students in silver class enjoyed using their project core boards to expressively communicate things they “like” by pointing to the like symbol. Some of the things we like include swimming, the beach, horse riding, Angelina Ballerina and of course CHCOLATE!!!
We had fun learning about making choices for Communication and language 1.14 – clearly indicate preferred objects. Personal care and wellbeing – 3.12 – Show preferences for foods and 3.18 – Participate in making healthy snacks.
We decided to use apples and top them with our choice of chocolate and toppings – nuts/sprinkles or coconut!…some students even selected 2 options.
Great sensory learning in Pink class.
