Welcome back to 1st class!
We have had a very busy and exciting first term.
First Class have just moved into our brand new classroom. We really enjoyed helping Ms. Moloney to organise the classroom and creating artwork to decorate our new room.
We are practising the Persuasive writing genre this month and learning lots of different reading comprehension strategies through the Building Bridges programme. Piper by Emma Chichester Clark is our favourite book we’ve read so far.
First Class love Science and we had a lot of fun during Science week. We investigated air and water with many cool experiments. We also made paper spinners and pinwheels.
In Geography, we investigated the weather and climate change. We talked about how we can help stop climate change. We recorded the weather everyday for a week, learned new words for different types of weather, talked about extreme weather conditions like hurricanes and each prepared a weather forecast to present to the class.
In History, we discovered how people long ago predicted the weather before the daily weather forecasts on TV.
Kilcornan NS took part in Anti Bullying week in November. We talked all about bullying and how to be a good friend. We recently had a visit from Dogs Trust which was very interesting. We learned how to behave around dogs so we can stay safe and also the hard work that goes into caring for a dog.
We have been working very hard on our Christmas show with the help of Kate Upton. This year Kilcornan NS are putting on a performance of ‘Cinderella’. First Class are singing and dancing in the show and have been practising a lot. We are really excited for the show and can’t wait for everyone to see us perform on the night.
