The Very Hungry Caterpillars!

Our Aistear theme in room 6 in January was ‘Food’. We enjoyed taking part in lots of different activities.

Our role play area was a restaurant. The waiters and chefs were very busy taking orders and preparing delicious meals for the hungry customers…we built restaurants using blocks, played food themed games, made food themed jigsaws and continued practicing our cutting and sticking.

Our artwork this month included some still life painting of delicious fruit bowls. We listened to the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and made caterpillar and butterfly crafts.

Also this month we learned about 2-D shapes and went on ‘shape walks’ looking for squares, rectangles, circles and triangles around the school. In science we explored floating and sinking by doing an experiment.

We learned lots of new sounds in JollyPhonics but our favourite was probably /ch/ because we got to make a choo-choo train all around the classroom.

Last Friday we had a great surprise when two local firemen came to visit us to tell us all about their work in the fire brigade!
