Senior Infants and First Class have been learning about sounds. We used glasses filled with different amounts of water in an experiment based on pitch. Before we listened to the sounds made by the spoon tapping the glasses, we predicted which would be high or low pitched. We also tested the sounds made by other containers like cups, bowls, jugs and bottles.
Here are some of the timelines Senior Infants and First Class made. The boys and girls looked at and talked about photographs taken since they were babies. They used pictures and photographs to make their own timelines.
One of our favourite stories in Senior Infants and First Class is "Little Red Riding Hood". Over the past few weeks we have read "Little Red Riding Hood", as well as telling and writing about the story in our own words during Free Writing time. Here are some of the pictures we drew and painted based on this book.
Senior Infants and First Class designed and made instruments. Here are photographs of how we made our instruments. We look forward to using them in our next music lesson.
Senior Infants and First Class enjoyed a wonderful surprise on Tuesday morning. George's Mum and Dad brought two Continental Giant rabbits into the classroom. Many of the boys and girls had never seen such beautiful, big rabbits. Elvis, a lovely, large rabbit, was very popular, and lots of children were able to feed and stroke him. They also showed us fluffy guinea pigs, which ate lots of carrots. One of be best parts of the visit was meeting some two day old guinea pigs. They were tiny, so we had to be gentle when holding and petting these little animals. The boys and girls learned a lot about guinea pigs and pet rabbits. We had a brilliant time with the animals and appreciate their visit very much.
Here is some of the work we completed about rabbits and bunnies.
An Acrostic Poem
Run, run Richy Rabbit,
As fast as you can,
Baby foxes are after you!
Bounce over the hill,
It is not far for you,
The baby foxes are still chasing you!
