Spring Term 2021

Lily Class

This spring term turned out to be a strange one. We didn’t come back to our classroom at first. Instead, we did all of our school work at home. Carla, Sabrina, Marie and Aoife made videos on Seesaw to help us to do our work. Our theme in January was ‘time’ so Aoife sent us all the Lámh signs that we would need to learn to talk about time, we learned how to sign ‘good morning’, ‘good night’ and all the important meal times in the day like breakfast, lunch and dinner. Marie sent video’s of how to make cereal, a sandwich and chop vegetables for our dinner. Aine posted some photo’s of her making pancakes with her mum and Brandon sent a photo of some lovely scrambled eggs he made for his mum. Sabrina was in charge of art and we drew a bright yellow sun and a silver moon. Carla sent us some pictures to colour and worksheets to fill in to help us to learn about telling the time. Shauna and Brandon did a great job with these and posted lots of photo’s of their work on Seesaw.

At last, we are back in the classroom but we are not altogether yet. We still have to work very hard to keep everyone safe so we have to keep washing our hands. It is February now and we are learning all about things that are big or small and things that are long or short. Dylan and Brandon are learning how to measure really big things like the door and really small things like a pencil. It is a lot of fun guessing the length and then measuring to see if we are right.

We also have a new sensory area in the hall. It's great for chilling out after all our hard work!
