As the middle room are covering orienteering as part of our PE Curriculum today they moved on to working with clues! This provided a tougher challenge for the pupils but was great fun. Children had to colour their own a map and create a map key. Once they had located a 'control card' they then had to match the clue to the correct numbered box and draw the shape on their sheet.
Would you have got them all?
As part of the school's build up to Safer Internet Day, held each year on February 6th, the children in the middle room had a guest speaker in to discuss how to be safer on their personal devices, things they should look out for and who they should speak to if something happens.
As more and more people use technology and have access to devices, it is important that we all understand while these devices are an excellent, we need to be safe. We need to remember our two important rules.
1. The Granny Rule - Do not take or post pictures that your Granny would not like
2. The T Shirt Rule - Do not put information or comments anywhere online that you wouldn't wear on a T shirt around town.
Thanks very much to Tricia for coming in and helping our children to be webwise.
Today we were making St. Brigid's Day Crosses with the middle room classes. Some of us made one out of pipe cleaners as a trail run to help with the process of making the cross. Thank you to the children who brought in some rushes for us to use today.
Thanks also to Mr Haran who came in to give us a hand.
In the Middle Room we have been learning about the human body in science. The first thing we have learned about is the human skeleton. We learned what makes up our bones, the types of joints that we have in our bodies and also some of the bone names.
The children learned the importance of our skeletons and also the importance of a healthy lifestyle to ensure our bones grow big and strong.
For this artwork the children used paint and black paper to create a rib cage by folding over the page to create a symmetrical print. We then attached the various bones.
