Middle Classroom

The 1st, 2nd and 3rd class pupils are taught by Mrs. Peavoy. We love to do art and craft, play sports and sing songs. Our favourite activity is baking! Here we are baking oatmeal raisin cookies. Everyone loves to help out mixing, weighing and of course eating them!

Projects!

Over the past 6 weeks, the children in 3rd class completed projects on various topics of their choice.  The topics covered various strands of the S.E.S.E (Social, Environmental and Scientific Education) curriculum.  On Tuesday, 28th February, the children stood in front of the whole class and presented their project to the other children.  They did a wonderful job!

The girls completed their projects on “Dogs” and “Horses”, each including lots of information, pictures and fun facts.  To see how much you know, there is even a quiz at the end of one project!  Well done girls!

The boys completed their projects on “Formula 1”, “Tractors”, “Cars” and “Tigers”.  They did such a great job presenting their projects to the class.  Each project is unique and some of them include maps, diagrams, graphs and there are also a few wordsearches based on the topics covered!  Well done boys!

The children in 2nd class got the opportunity to read and discuss the projects with the children in 3rd class and they were very impressed with the standard of work and the huge effort that went into the projects.

Well done to all the 3rd class for their wonderful projects.  You should be very proud of your efforts!

February Fun in 2nd and 3rd Class!

Date posted: 20th February 2012 | Category Blog, Middle Classroom, Special Occasions, Visual Arts |

We have been very busy in 2nd and 3rd class over the past few weeks.  As well as completing lots of nice art and craft for Valentine’s Day, we also baked very simple (but delicious) cookies!

The children made lovely cards for their Mums and Dads!

Here are our cookies!  Each child brought a recipe home also, so they can make them with their parents!

As part of our Art lesson last week, we took a trip to the Discovery Park , to an exhibition by the students of the Community School.  We looked at their “Self-Portraits” and recognised a few faces!

As a little treat, the children had a chance to play in the playground for a short time…

2nd & 3rd Class Work…

Date posted: 7th February 2012 | Category Blog, Class Work, English, Middle Classroom, Science, Visual Arts |

The children in 2nd & 3rd class have been learning about the human body over the past few weeks.  As well as learning the names of various bones in the body, they got the opportunity to see inside the human body and learn about the functions of various organs such as the heart and lungs.  Above you can see our skeletons and below, a model showing the inside of our bodies!

We have also been learning about magnetism in Science.  The children were given opportunities to freely explore the properties of magnets in groups.  We completed experiments to see if magnets worked through various materials.

As part of the literacy strategy introduced in primary schools over the past few weeks, the children have been learning new and interesting words each day and creating sentences with them.  Here is our word wall, showing some of the words we now know!

In Art, we studied the works of Pablo Picasso and learned about his Blue Period, Rose Period and African Inspired Period.  The children then created their own Picasso inspired works and thought of a name for their piece of art.

We also designed our own ski jackets for the wintery weather and used various textured papers to enhance our designs…..

We also completed a collage entitled “Stormy Seas and Pirate Ships” using various medium.  They are on display in the corridor, just outside our classroom.

Christmas Celebrations in 2nd & 3rd Class!

Date posted: 21st December 2011 | Category Blog, Christmas, English, Middle Classroom, Music, Visual Arts |

2nd and 3rd Class boys and girls have been very busy for the past few weeks decorating the classroom, writing stories and having fun as Christmas approaches!  We really enjoyed doing lots of Art & Craft from the various strands of the Primary School Curriculum.  We painted some love pictures of Rudolph, Santa, Christmas Trees and Angels and displayed them in the classroom!

We also made felt stockings, sewed them together and decorated them with different characters…

The boys and girls painted glass jars with holly, presents, santa claus and rudolph and then we each placed a tea-light candle into the jars.  They will look very well when they are lit up on Christmas Eve!

In English the children wrote wonderful stories about Christmas adventures.  Come into the class and have a look at them.  Some boys and girls wrote stories that were 5 pages long!

We also made Christmas decorations for our trees at home.  We used Hama Beads to create the designs and then they were ironed by a teacher to melt the beads together.  They look so nice on the wall in our classroom and will look nicer on the Christmas tree!

In Music, we learned a song called “The Christmas Alphabet”.  The children worked in pairs to depict the meaning of each letter and the word is on display in our classroom!

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for the new year!

Our letters to Santa!

Date posted: 9th December 2011 | Category Blog, Christmas, Class Work, English, Middle Classroom |

The 2nd and 3rd Class pupils wrote their letters to Santa last week.  On Monday, when the weather was better, we set off to the local post office to send them on their long journey to the North Pole!

We waited patiently all week for a letter and on Wednesday it came!  Santa and Mrs. Claus wrote back and thanked us for the letters and the pictures we included!  Santa said he was very busy making toys, feeding the reindeer for their long journey on Christmas Eve and packing the sleigh!  He asked us to leave out carrots for the reindeer and cookies and milk for him!

Come and read the letter from Santa on Wednesday 21st December at the Christmas party!  It really made us all smile!
