We used our Tír na nÓg map to learn about length. We measured the distance between Oisín and the castle, Oisín and the playground, Oisín and the forest and Oisín and Niamh using cubes. We estimated the distance in first and then checked it using cubes.
Our sound this week is /oo/ /oo/. A little girl got a cuckoo clock for her birthday and at 4 O'clock the little cuckoo popped out and said, uu oo.
Try these words and see which /oo/ sounds rights:
Can you cook food on the moon?
Look at the big cats in the zoo.
It is Spring so the daffodils will start to appear in our gardens soon. We were learning about all the different parts of the daffodil - the bulb, the roots, the stem, the leaves, the petals and the trumpet. This boy brought in his Dad's trumpet to show us how the trumpet in the daffodil got its name! . Everyone loved seeing and hearing the trumpet!
The church is a special place. We were learning about the altar, candles which show God is all around us and the baptisimal font where we were baptised. Thank you to the children who brought in photographs of their baptism. We have them on display in the classroom.
We looked at and discussed the Picasso painting, 'Girl with Dark Hair'. We talked about the shapes, the colours and said whether or not we liked it. Then we used oil pastels and paint to make our own Picasso inspired portrait.
This week we are learning the sound /ee/ /or/
We sing these words to the tune of 'Twinkle Twinkle' to remember the sounds that the letters /ee/ and /or/ make.
See the donkey in it's stall,
Ee or, ee or

Here are some /ee/ /or/ words and sentences to dictate to your child. He/she will be able to sound it out and write the words.
1. Do not beep your horn in the morning.
2. Did you feed the sheep with a fork?
