Junior Infants were practising their cutting skills and created some lovely winter trees. Ms. Larkin was delighted to see great improvement in their cutting.
As part of our topic on keeping our body healthy, the boys and girls from Ms Tighe’s first class brought in their toothbrushes today. There was lots of discussion on how and why we need to take care of our teeth. We learned about plaque and the best way to brush our teeth properly using a pea sized amount of toothpaste for 3minutes. We used plaque disclosing tablets to show us how much plaque builds up on our teeth throughout the day and how long it takes to clean away all the plaque. As photos show you must remember your gums and tongue also! Brushing twice a day along with one or two visits to the dentist each year and good food choices should keep our teeth healthy for many years to come. We finished our lesson by making posters to encourage others to take care of their teeth too.
3rd class have been learning about ancient Egypt 🇪🇬 . We tried out some Egyptian writing, ” hieroglyphics” and drew our names using these symbols. We also painted these pictures based on the pharaoh Tutankhamun, whose tomb was discovered intact in 1922.
