Learning to Ride a Bicycle

Everyone in the ASD Class is super proud of Siluan who is learning to ride a bicycle. At yesterday’s lesson he found his balance and pedalled without any help. Well done Siluan!

Magnets – ASD Class

For this year’s Science Exhibition we combined sensory play, maths and science into one fun activity! We each took turns to find hidden objects in a tray filled with pasta and tested them to see if they were magnetic or non-magnetic. We sorted the objects into two sets and recorded our results on a data chart. We all had great fun using the horseshoe magnet and investigating what is attracted to it. Lorchán did a fantastic job presenting our work to parents in the hall.

Spooktakular OT – ASD Class

As Halloween approaches, this week we decided to add a haunted feel to our daily OT course. First we had to balance an eerie eyeball on a magic spoon! Next we blew scary spiders off the table into hot lava using a straw or just our mouth! Then we threw a ball at a tower of ghoulish ghosts, trying to knock as many of them down as possible! We all had lots of fun while practicing some important skills.

Fantastic Gymnastics – ASD Class

Here we are balancing, climbing, rolling, crawling and jumping while doing gymnastics in the hall. We loved every PE lesson. They were equally fun, exciting and challenging. We are all excellent gymnasts. Ms. Groarke, Ms. Kelly and Ms. Dillon are very proud of our commitment and bravery, particularly while climbing the highest ladder.

Up the Dubs! ASD Class

We are all big Dublin GAA supporters in Room 18. Today we made a lovely poster for the All Ireland Football Final on Sunday in Croke Park where Dublin will play Mayo for the second year in a row. Last year we got to hold the Sam Maguire cup when it came to our school. We hope we get to see it again this year! Best of luck to both teams.
