December in Seomra Bán

December was a busy time in Seomra Bán as we were preparing and performing our winter performance for our families and other members of the school. We worked very hard on learning the words and actions and everybody sang with great enthusiasm. We performed the ‘Chubby Snowman’, ‘Winter Wonderland’ and ‘Let it Snow’.

As winter was one of our themes we learned about the type of weather we experience in winter and used various coloured chalks on a black background to design winter scenes to display outside our classroom.

We also worked on our ‘getting along’ skills as we worked together to design our class Christmas tree. We all coloured unique stars and placed them all together to create the shape of a tree. It was great team work.

In Maths we were working on Place Value for the first time and doing lots of grouping and learning about left overs and ones. We began to exchange groups of counters for soldiers which was lots of fun. We will continue to develop our understanding of Place Value in January.
