The other sound this week is 'o'. The rhyme for 'o' is -  Curve around, keep on going and stop.  Here is the song

Science Week

The children had a great week last week taking part in Science Week. Every day, the children made their own 'inventions' and we learned about pushing, pulling and gravity. We even had a scientist come in and visit us!

We went to the 5th classes to look at their projects for the Science Fair and we all thought they were brilliant, well done to them.

Some of the children in our class dressed up as crazy scientists, they definitely looked the part!

Choo- choo, all aboard the Belmayne Express!

The children are really enjoying this Aistear topic of 'The Train Station'. They have been creating beautiful trains using different materials, they are working together to build train stations and trains and they have been going on journeys all around Ireland on the Belmayne E.T train! They have been learning a lot of new words such as 'conductor', 'return ticket', 'single ticket', 'platform', 'carriage', 'steam train', 'level crossing' and 'train tracks'. Have a look at some of the things the children have been getting up to :)
