We are covering so much work during Power Hour, that it's nearly hard to remember it all sometimes! As well as reading A LOT of new books this week, we did dictionary work, cloze activities, grammar tasks, phonics, dictation and handwriting. Can you believe we fit that all into one hour?! We're brilliant! Have a look at our Instagram to keep up to date with our activities!
One of the things we started today was our Food Dudes programme. We are really excited about working towards our rewards and certificates. Today we got to taste some carrot sticks and grapes - and they were yummy! We are bringing home our Food Dude diaries tonight too, and if we manage to eat another portion of both fruit and veg at home every evening for the next 16 school days (and keep track of it), we will get another certificate!
We had such a busy day today - so many exciting things were happening. We had a visit from Noelle who taught us how to use K'nex to build a whole variety of inventions - horses, giraffes and monsters, right up to motorised cars that we could actually race! Our teachers were so pleased to hear that she thought we were really curious and well-behaved children. Noelle even told us we were now "knexperts"!

Another great week of Power Hour work under our belts! 2nd and 3rd classes worked hard on a lot of literacy skills this week: reading, dictionary work, grammar, comprehension and handwriting! And what's more, we had fun doing it! Click "Read More" to see our gallery.
We launched right into Power Hour in 2nd and 3rd classes this week. It was tough work, but we rose to the challenge!
Our first group of Power Hour Champions also got their certificates and stampers this week. Well done, Senior Infants and 1st class!!!!
