Autumn Art with Natural objects
In Room 12 this week we have been learning all about Autumn. These are pictures we made with the items we found on our Autumn nature walk. We worked in pairs to create the pictures. We had to do lots of talking and planning before we got to work. We made our pictures by laying the objects out on the floor or table. Then we used the tablets to take photographs of our pictures. After that we got to take our items home. The finished art is the photographs. We hope you like them!
Listen to Senior Infants telling the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’!
We have been learning about fairytales and retelling stories during the month of September. We retold the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ in groups of 3 with one person telling the beginning of the story, one person telling the middle and one person telling the end. We recorded the stories ourselves using ‘Sound Recorder’ on the school tablets. One person in each group was in charge of recording! We then got to listen to the stories and had lots of fun. This was part of our History lesson and also Oral Language.

We can’t wait to see the finished mural!

For the next 2 weeks the children who come to me will be talking about Newbridge and the area in which the children live. We have been looking at photographs of buildings, shops and places in Newbridge: Whitewater, the playground, the cinema, Tesco, the pharmacy, the petrol station, the hairdressers and so on…. Please talk to your child about the places and buildings you see when on the way to school or at the weekend. We would love some more photos of Newbridge so please take photographs with your child and email to me at email@example.com. Photographs from all children and parents are welcome!
