Over the past three weeks we have been talking about the Garda Station during playtime and throughout the day. We have read some lovely books about policemen too called Police Officers on Patrol and Officer Buckle and Gloria. CJ brought in a brilliant homemade police hat to school and well done to all the boys and girls who brought in different toys for our socio-dramatic area.
Teacher got a new car and we asked Fr. Sean if he would be so kind to bless our car and keep teacher safe on the roads!
The same day, we had a visit from Garda O' Connor, he talked to us about how important it is to wear a seatbelt, where we should sit in the car and some of the boys and girls tried on his hard helmet, his hat and got to handle his baton.
We talked about length and 3D shapes over the past few weeks in maths. We made different buildings with our 3D shapes and used lollipop sticks to measure different items in the classroom such as the table, the door and our lunch boxes.
