Super synonyms!

We are trying to develop our vocabulary in Room 22. We write in our vocabulary copies every week and do some word work during the week. Here we have all the words we brainstormed which mean said. We always refer to our thesaurus when we are finished for some interesting words!

Houses and building materials

We have worked very hard learning all about different materials used to build a house. Developing our vocabulary is important to us so we always try to include some vocabulary work in our SESE work. this

Houses complete with walls, roof, chimney, gutters and much more! You may even spot a swing or trampoline if you look closely😊

From this......

Look at the girls trying to get an idea from their heads and create it with their hands. We have been learning about materials used to make houses. Check out our after pictures of the finished work.

Cad atá imithe?

Tá na cailíní ag imirt cluiche iontach.  Cuireann duine amháin rud I bhfolach agus déanann an duine eile tomhas cad atá imithe. The girls are playing a fun guessing game. One person closes their eyes while the other hides something from the table. When they open their eyes they guess what's missing. Don't peeking!

What's up?

Here you see some of the girls playing a very fun game called what's up? They are working in pairs, describing the picture on the headband and the person wearing it has to guess what they have on! It's very funny😁

Drawing skills

We have been practicing our drawing skills in Room 22. We began drawing shapes like ovals and circles. Maths helps us here ☺Next, we added features. You can see how much we are developing in our finished work. We talked about each other's work and what we like about it. Check out our owls!

Word work

Keep checking in on our blog because we are doing alot of work on our vocabulary. We have been talking about synonyms this week. It's a really hard word to say! We are also talking about the roots of words. Stay tuned for some very interesting work!

Spatter Art

Today we looked at some famous art, 'Nocturne in Black and Gold'. We took inspiration from this and created a cityscape with fireworks in the sky. Have a look at some of our process. We practiced blow painting, designing and cutting. It was tricky but we had lots of fun.


In September, we talked all about our personal timelines. We have all grown and changed so much. We brought in baby photos and recent photos for comparison. We also brought in items we had when we were babies. Look how small our clothes were!!
