The boys and girls are thoroughly enjoying our bird watching area. We have very keen bird watchers who have reported many sightings of birds back to their class. It is a wonderful interest and it is creating great discussions about our native birds.
Another aspect of our creative schools plan that has been put in place is our outdoor chalkboards. The children love this new creative outlet during their break times. A huge thank you to Seamus Ryan for kindly creating our flower chalkboards. It is very much appreciated by all in Scoil Mochaomhóg Naofa.
1st and 2nd class were recently learning about dynamics. They used their whiteboards to respond to loud and soft sounds. They then made instruments. 1st class made shakers, different children were tasked with making loud and soft sounding shakers. They used a variety of materials to create the desired sound. 2nd class made xylophones. They used their xylophone to play some nursery rhymes.
1st and 2nd class have been busy taking some of their learning to our outdoor areas. They’ve enjoyed working on our class novel in the sensory garden, while working on number and SESE in the school yard.
1st and 2nd Class created projects about nocturnal animals. They learned many interesting facts about their nocturnal animal and worked hard to record their information using their knowledge of report writing. The children then worked with their group to present their information as a poster and then present it orally to the class. They did a fantastic job!
1st and 2nd Class have sponsored a Koala named Jimmy from the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital. The Koala Hospital are very busy caring for many injured and dehydrated Koalas during the terrible Australian Wildfires. The boys and girls are very excited to care for Jimmy. He only joined our class last week and has already helped make Eton Mess, play the Nintendo and go to ballet lessons.
