We have been learning all about Italy this month. As part of this theme we were learning about Michelangelo and some of his most famous works. He spent over four years painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. We think this must have been very difficult so we decided to give working like Michelangelo a go!
Junior and Senior Infants have been learning about The Garden Centre this month for Spring. They played in the role play area practicing watering the flowers, filling pots with soil, planting flowers and selling garden equipment. They especially enjoyed the messy play with soil and water. We learned about the lifecycle of a plant and all the things a plant needs to grow. We enjoyed designing our own leprechauns and rainbows for St. Patrick's Day.
The boys and girls have been very busy learning about procedural writing. We had great fun making our own Rice Krispie buns and jam sandwiches. We wrote some instructions on how we made them. They were delicious!
