An update from Brazil Class

We have been very busy since we returned from our Christmas break! In history we have moved through time from the Egyptians to the Vikings, and made some pretty cool Viking Shields. We are learning why the Vikings came to countries such as Ireland and the long-ships they traveled on. This week in Science we examined different materials to see if they were magnetic. We also looked at how different poles of magnets attract and repel.  In Geography we have been looking at our local environment, and how we could improve the environment around the school. Finally in Irish our theme this month is Eadaí and we have been working on improving our spoken Irish in class also ! Here are a few easy phrases you can use at home:

Dia Duit – Hello

Conas atá tú? – How are you?

Cad a d’ith tú ar maidin? – What did you eat in the morning?

Inis dom faoin aimsir inniu – Tell me about the weather today

 

Please have some fun asking your children these questions, and we hope you enjoy our  photos below!! Thanks
