We had such a wonderful school trip to Airfield last Friday. It was so exciting getting on a big bus and travelling there as a class. We each had a partner to sit beside and to hold hands with during the tour. We got to visit the animals, learn about how milk is made, visit the pond and see what we could find, learn all about the vegetables they grow there and we even went to the playground! It was such fun :)
During Tech week last week, 6th class came down to our class to teach us how to play scratch Junior on the iPads. It was great fun and we learned loads!
We are so lucky that Charlotte in our class has brought in 10 wonderful caterpillars into our class so that we can learn all about the butterfly cycle! We have watched them grow bigger and bigger everyday. We are waiting for them to go into their chrysalis and then soon after turn into butterflies :) here is the work we have done on them so far!
We had a great last day to celebrate the Easter holidays. We had an Easter egg hunt with Ms Ni Fhearáin’s class. We ran around the garden in pairs looking for plastic eggs with a surprise in them. We also had a popcorn party after break time. Happy Easter from all of us here!
We are so lucky to have so many fun outings happening around Spring time. Firstly, we grew sunflowers and grass heads in small pots using soil and cotton wool. We are enjoying watering them and watching them grow.
We also got to go on a Spring nature walk with Ms O'Sullivan's class. We were partnered up with a girl or boy from the other class and went on a spring hunt. It was great fun getting to know the other class :)
Lastly, there was great excitement last Friday as a pet farm came to visit the school. We saw loads of cool animals like a snake, rabbit, lizard, donkey, lamb, pig and sheep. We got to pet them and learned all about what they eat and where they live.
Bhí coicís iontach againn ag céiliúradh Seachtain na Gaeilge. Tháinig 'giggles' an fear grinn isteach agus chuir sé seó iontach ar siúl. Bhí ceolchoirm, tóraíocht taisce, tráth na gCeist agus lá glas againn freisin. Bhuaigh Sophia agus Clara 'Gaeilgeoir na coicíse'.
We have been working so hard on our Art work this month. Our colourful cows were inspired by the famous artist 'Peter Diem'. We also made Sheep out of bubble wrap. It was a lot of fun!
This month we are having great fun learning all about Spring and the Vet's Surgery. We have a Vet Surgery in our classroom where we like to dress up and act out different roles. We are learning all the new vocabulary and phrases associated with the Vet. We are also enjoying doing writing and math stations. We have 7 minutes on each station and when the timer goes off we have to clean up and move on. We really enjoy them :)
We built houses made out of different materials in our groups and made them strong so that the big bad wolf couldn't blow them down. We did really well, look at the videos below :)
