3rd & 4th
We have been observing and studying the amazing transformation of caterpillar into butterfly. Today we released our five butterflies: Flame, Silky, Wiggles, Victor and Cathy. We hope they will visit our plant boxes soon.
3rd and 4th class walked down to Fairfield park and carried out a habitat investigation. We looked at the plant and animal life in Fairfield park. Here are some photos of us carrying out our investigations and observations.
3rd and 4th class have been hard at work writing articles imagining it was 1916. We first examined newspapers written about the Easter Rising from 1916. We then imagined we were journalists reporting on Monday 24th of April 1916.
We learnt how to quill and then designed beautiful Valentine's day cards.
We have been learning all about archaeology and the work of an archaeologist for the past six weeks. Mark from the School of Irish Archaeology has been teaching us about Ireland through the ages as well as what it takes to be an archaeologist!
A lovely sunny day to sketch our school building.
We had lots of fun during our Lego workshop where we built and programmed a robotic crocodile!!
In September we learnt a lot about bees and we even made our own bees, take a look..
As well as learning about bees in the classroom we also went to see a lovely play about bees in The Ark. We learnt about bumblebees, honey bees and solitary bees!
