Welcome back! Here's our homework and new Aistear topic - The Train Station

 Welcome back to the second half of Term 1, it sounds like the children had a lovely mid-term break and are ready to learn loads of new things!
The tricky word this week is 'be', can you think of any sentences with this word in it?
The first sound we are learning about this week is:

The formation rhyme for this sound goes like this:
'Dive down, bump the line, swim back up and over.'

Have a look at some things that start with this sound!



 Here is the song for the sound 'r'

'Dive down, swim up and over, back down, bump, swim up and over, back down and kick.'


Here is the song for 'm':


We will be learning all about transport for the next two weeks and our new Aistear topic is 'The Train Station'. Some of the words we will be learning are: train station, train driver, schedule, ticket master, platform, single ticket, return ticket and carriage.

The children will be learning all about the different types of transport so you can take a look at some of these types of transport and chat about what they could be used for!

Today we learned all about the sound...

Our rhyme for this sound goes like this - 'Curve around, up like a helicopter, bump, back down and kick.' We made sure to check our classroom for things beginning with the 'a' sound so you could have a look around and see if you can spot anything beginning with 'a' outside school! Here is the song for this sound.

We have also been practicing our tricky word, 'the', and trying to find it hiding in different places around the classroom!

At Home in Aistear!

The children were learning all about the 'Home' in Aistear over the last two weeks. They talked about themselves, their families, their homes and met our new Aistear friend, Beebot! The Beebot is a 'coding robot' that can be used in a huge amount of ways to teach many topics and already the children are having great fun with it, while learning a vast amount of vocabulary linked to each topic. 
They also built their dream home, made family members and houses out of playdoh, painted their 'hidden names' and played with small houses and toys from the home.
Take a look at what some of the children got up to 'At Home'!
