This month in Maths, Mr Smyth’s Class are focussing on Data. We have been doing surveys about people’s favourite colours and putting them into pictograms. Check out the survey we carried out with Junior Infants. Which colour is the most popular?
This week in Art Mr Smyth’s Class have been looking at the colours in nature during Autumn.
We looked at the different colours and shades of the leaves.
We mixed yellows and reds to make different shades of orange.
Hope you enjoy the pictures below of our class working on our colours
Mr Smyth and 1st and 2nd class went for a nature walk in the Phoenix Park this week. We looked at the animals around us- Swans, Water Hens, Ducks and Squirrels and examined the trees in the park- Maple, Oak and Horse Chestnut trees. The children examined the colours of the leaves around them for their Art work this week and they discovered and collected leaves, branches and seeds from a number of trees.
Check out some pictures below.
This month Mr Smyth’s 1st/2nd Class have been working on drawing in Art.

A huge well done to all the children who reached the finals and showed everyone their amazing number skills and strategies. Congratulations to Alan, our junior champion and well done to Marta and Karol who were our runners up. In the senior final it was congratulations to Alistair who came in 1st place and his worthy runners up were Daniel and Leon. Well done to all involved.
