Class 3

Tulip Class


Welcome to the Tulip Class.  We have sprung into spring and are delighted to see the days getting brighter and the weather getting nicer! We have been making some lovely spring art and creating displays for our classroom.  We will be celebrating St. Brigid’s day and learning how to make St Bridgid’s day crosses. We will also be celebrating St. Valentine’s day and making cards and chocolates for our loved ones this term!  We are excited for Mother’s day and cannot wait to make some yummy pancakes for pancake Tuesday!


This term we will be learning all about numbers and practicing our addition and subtraction skills. We have been practicing our counting skills and number recognition. Some of us have been practicing our number formation skills with hand over hand support. We have enjoyed matching different coins and exchanging money for items in our school shop and in shops when we make a trip to town. We have also been learning all about time and have enjoyed sequencing our daily activities. We will be learning how to read a digital and analogue clock. We have been enjoying our story time sessions and our rhymes and songs and have been enjoying learning our weekly phonics sounds.


In the Tulip class we all love cooking and enjoy following instructions and recipes to make lots of delicious treats!  We love our Drama sessions and we all enjoy when Bernie visits us for reflexology. We have been getting lots of exercise going for walks and we look forward to doing gymnastics with Ann and Angela every Monday. We have been doing lots of practise for our competition in March.  Every week we look forward to playing games and football in AIT and  playing snooker, music  and face painting in St. Mary’s. We love interacting with all of the students who help us every week.


We all love our  circle time where we learn about the weather and our friends news in school. We have been using LAMH signs to help us. We have been learning all about seasons and growing up in SESE.  In SPHE we have been learning about how to look after our body and how our bodies grow and change. Some of us have been learning self -help skills. We have all been working hard on following our class rules and engaging in productive parallel play and table top activities within the class.
