Last week was Maths and Science Week. In Room 8, we loved not using our books and engaging in activities, be it in pairs or in groups. Have a look at the pictures to see just some of the things we got up to!
When Ms. Burke’s class were asked what their favourite activity in Second Class has been so far, many responses were Art. And what amazing artists they are! Have a look at what room 8 have been doing in this subject since the start of September.
In Ms. Burke’s Second Class, the boys and girls have been very busy, in particular in the subjects of S.E.S.E. – History, Geography and Science.
In Science, we were investigating magnets. Our conclusion lesson involved Geography where the children drew maps of Ratoath. They used paper clips as cars. They then drove the car (paper clip) around Ratoath by using a magnet underneath their map.
In History, we were looking at games in the past so Ms. Burke brought in what she would have played as a child. There were 7 stations – foosball, rubber rings, memory, target, elastics, x’s and o’s and squares. Everyone in room 8 had so much fun, including Ms. Burke!! Have a look at the photographs showing these activities!
