Ancient egypt project
Our sunflowers are doing so well that we decided to plant some beetroot, kale and oriental leaf radish. Plants need light, warmth, water, space and nutrients to grow so we made sure that we provided all of these things.
SudokU & Maths eyes!
We can now do Sudoku with 9 numbers!! And our Maths Eyes are working very well too. We have come up with some wonderful Maths questions about pictures at stations.
Look what we made today! The ancient Egyptians used a loom, but a piece of card worked pretty well for us!
Mystery skype solved!
We solved two mysteries via Skype this week! On Thursday, we had a Skype call with our buddies from Rhode Island. We had to guess what animal they were thinking of! On Friday, we watched our final clue from our mystery class and decided that they must be from Pennsylvania, U.S.A!
Seachtain na Gaeilge
Bhí ceolchoirm agus céilí mór againn inniú! Chanamar 'Jeaic agus an Gas Pónaire' agus bhí craic íontach againn!
Problem solving & TEamwork!
There has been some great teamwork going on in Second Class Red at Activity Centres. Our problem solving continued this week with Tarsias and Sudoku.
Tutankhamun- the boy king!
We have been reading about Tutankhamun. Watch this video we made to hear some of the facts we have learned!
We are continuing to learn lots about Ancient Egypt. We have been doing plenty of research and even made these pyramids from nets! See the Ancient Egypt page for more!
Our project work inspired these oil pastel landscapes. We talked about perspective- how to make things look near or far away- and about how to use complementary colours to create a contrast between land and sky. See the Paint and Colour page!
