1st Class Christmas Blog

First Class have had a fantastic first term! We have had a great time learning about numbers to thirty. First class have worked hard at developing understanding and strategies to work with addition and simple subtraction. As well as working on our numbers we have also been exploring 2D shapes.

We have also been focusing on our handwriting. First class are showing a great understanding of the difference between capital and lowercase letters. We are constantly developing our understanding of the conventions of print and how to present our work. Well done First Class!

As part of our SESE curriculum First Class learned about going to the dentist and how to keep our teeth healthy! We also learned about traditional Irish myths and legends including the Children of Lir and The Salmon of Knowledge.

First Class have had a wonderful time preparing for Christmas. We have decorated our classroom with lots of lovely artwork. We have also learnt about the birth of Baby Jesus!
