Maths - Measures- Weight
1st class had great fun studying the topic of Weight. They organised the food items according to weight, but without measuring or reading the weight on the packets! (Thanks to Mrs. Gallagher and her magic stickers!) There was also a 30 second dash where each pair had to pick 2 items that they thought weighed the same!

Observing pumpkins decomposing
After Halloween, first class decided to watch some pumpkins decomposing. They put pumpkin 1 outside the classroom, pumpkin 2 inside the classroom and pumpkin 3 in the outdoor composter. Here are some photos to show you what they observed.
100 dojo points
Well done to all in first class for reaching an amazing 100 dojo points. The children have been working and playing very hard and they all received a fabulous Brú na Bóinne jigsaw for their efforts.
First class are going to observe their composter over the next few weeks to see what happens. They will record their findings in their SESE copies.

First class dojo points
The pupils in first class can earn dojo points for many reasons -good listening, group work, helping others, neat writing, standing properly in líne, taking part, trying their best and working hard! When they reach 35 points, they get a prize. When they reach 70, they get a bonus 5 points and their photo will be posted here! When they get to 100, they will get a written homework pass and a mention at the next assembly. Keep up the great work Rang a hAon!
