Our Harvest Assembly rehearsals are well underway, as you can see from the pictures, we have lots of lovely poems and songs ready to perform for all of our family and friends!
Our Junior Room has been transformed into a hospital for our current Aistear theme!! We have had so much fun learning all about how a hospital works, listening to interesting stories about trips to the hospital and we even had a chance to use real hospital equipment like stethoscopes, oxygen masks, bandages etc. Here are just a selection of the photos to show you all the work we were doing!
We had a very busy waiting room with receptionists who were run off their feet answering phones and keeping files, a busy staff of doctors,nurses and surgeons not to mention patients. We had radiologists at hand to read the X-Rays. We also had a construction site at the hospital where our builders were building a new wing.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Aistear theme At the Hospital. Stay tuned for our next theme: The Fruit and Vegetable shop……
In other news we have also been learning a lot about autumn this month with more to come during the month of October. We made a lovely display of our artwork. We used sponges and did sponge painting using autumn colours for our background. We then drew and cut out silhouettes of hedgehogs and squirrels on black paper. When the paint had dried we stuck them on and made branches for our animals to rest on.
We have had another busy term here in Drumfad filled with lots of fun activities.
We have been experimenting with different colours and prints.
This month we have been working very hard at our Vet Clinic during Aistear. We had lots of sick animals come to visit.
In November we set up a bakery in our classroom. It was great fun!
