Visitors from France and French Dress Up Day

We were very lucky today to have two visitors in our class today, who are both from France and live here in Ireland now! Ilian's parents came into us this morning to tell us all about France. The children had a lot to tell them about their own country but we learned even more about the different theme parks in France, some French history, listened and danced to a beautiful French song and we also found out that the tallest bridge in France is actually tallest bridge in Europe! 

They were even kind enough bring in some French treats for us to taste and the children were all asking for seconds! 

Thank you both so much for coming into our class, it was wonderful! 

Also, well done to the whole class for dressing up as something linked to France. I was so impressed by everyone, from French flags to French mime artists and we even had a French Poodle in class - c'├ętait super!

'a, a, ants on my arm!'

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'!
