1st Class

Múinteoir: Ms Gardiner

April 2021:

We’ve had a very busy few weeks here in 1st class with lots of learning and lots of fun!!

We have been learning about the lifecycle of a butterfly. We learned about how caterpillars become butterflies and we created a visual representation of their lifecycle using natural materials from the environment. We gathered leaves, twigs, stones and soil and constructed an egg, a caterpillar, a cocoon and a butterfly.

In art, we used lots of colourful crepe paper to make beautiful butterflies, focusing on their patterns

After we planted our sunflowers a few weeks ago, we wanted to brighten up our classroom by making our own sunflowers. We had great fun painting and cutting the paper plates and experimenting with painting bubble wrap to create a sunflower effect!

For World Earth Day (April 22nd), we learned about all the ways that we can look after our planet. We can plant flowers and trees, reduce our waste, save water and recycle as often as we can! Then, we worked together to design posters to show everyone how we can help the planet.
