Seomra Oráiste Begins a New Term

In Seomra Oráiste we have been reading Dear Zoo. We learned all about the zoo animals and sorted them according to whether they have patterns or not, whether they can fly/swim etc. We drew a map of the zoo and included all the needs of the animals e.g. water and trees. We also watched the RTE zoo programme and learned lots about how to look after the animals. Zoo keepers have a lot of responsibilities! We wrote letters to the zoo to send us a pet but we are still waiting! Take a look at our zoo art. First we made hand prints with paint and then we added details with a paintbrush.

We have also been learning how to tell the time this month. There are lots of fun games on the internet to help us set the hour and tell what time it is:

We have also been using this clock in the classroom to help us with the time.
