Homes and Houses

DSCF0102 We have been learning all about different types of houses and homes, from bungalows to flats and two-storeys to castles.  We have talked about the rooms you would find in most houses and the materials used all around the house.


In the past two weeks we have also been building houses! We made our own buider hats from paper maiche and made a big mess! We have been designing rooms in shoeboxes and collecting photographs and drawings of furniture for the various rooms in a house.  It has been hard work but good fun!DSCF0059DSCF0060 DSCF0061 DSCF0062 DSCF0063 DSCF0064 DSCF0065 DSCF0082 DSCF0083 DSCF0084 DSCF0085 DSCF0086 DSCF0087 DSCF0088 DSCF0089 DSCF0090 DSCF0091 DSCF0092 DSCF0093 DSCF0094 DSCF0095 DSCF0096

An Aimsir

This week we have been learning about An Aimsir and as part of this we made our own mini weather station.

We made a windsock which shows the wind direction and how strong the wind is.

We also made a rain gauge to measure the rainfall.  Ryan’s Dad brought us a big pot full of chips to keep the gauge steady, we made a funnel from the top of a bottle and the rain collects in a jar underneath.


Art with Jennifer

This week Junior and Senior Infants were very lucky to have Jennifer help them make beautiful fish tanks from shoe boxes.

Autumn Nature Walk 2013

We are nearing the end of Autumn and as we have been learning about the various signs of Autumn we decided to investigate for ourselves. We took a walk up the lane and discovered many brown, yellow and orange leaves that had fallen from the trees.  We found blackberries and an apple. We also collected many seeds like the ash key, the horse chestnut and beech nut. We heard birds and a tractor and we noticed that the weather has started to get cooler. Here are some pictures from our nature walk:
