We love drama in our class. We read the story of the Three Little Pigs and here are some pictures of us acting it out. We had some very scary Big Bad Wolves and some very frightened Little Pigs. Hurray for drama!!
First we made jam on the cooker with berries and jam. Yum! Yum!
While the jam was cooking we made the dough for the brown bread and jam. We all worked together to mix the dough.We have strong muscles.
We are so proud of the result. Yummy jam and warm brown scones straight from the oven. We can’t wait to tuck in.
This year we visited Ard na Sí Farm in Watergrasshill for our school tour. We loved every minute of it. We saw pigs, goats, horses, ducks, rabbits and lots of other animals. We also went for a ride on a donkey and cart. Everyone thought that the farm was quite smelly but we enjoyed ourselves regardless. Here are some photos of us searching for fairies in the fairy village. We definitely think we caught a glimpse of one or two.
We read a funny book in our class about two crazy inventors who made a robot. We decided that we could become inventors and make our own robots. Teacher gave us lots of materials to build robots with like lego, blocks, cubes, the marble run… And we experimented with these to make our inventions.
Some people even made two robots!
Things started to heat up when one of the boys made a robot that could move. It’s head could turn from side to side and it’s arms could move up and down. So then we all tried to make moving robots.
One of the girls decided to make a castle for her robot.
Then the robots even decided to talk to each other in robot voices.
We have decided that the next time we put on our inventor hats, we will make monsters. So exciting!!!
Another party in the Language Class. We love parties. The birthday girl’s mummy made a delicious chocolate cake for the boys and girls (and the teacher’s loved it too!! Thanks a million). We are all getting so big and grown up.
Exciting news! Dayl Cronin from the band Hometown has been teaching our kids how to dance Hip Hop. We love it. We learned lots of cool moves and we are putting together a dance routine to perform. At the end of class we got to show Dayl some of our dance moves too. He agreed that we are all really good dancers.
Siobhan very kindly brought us in some strawberry seeds to plant today. We learned that seeds need soil, water and light to grow. The strawberry seeds were tiny so we had to be very careful when sowing them in our pots. We remembered that the pumpkin seeds that we planted at Halloween were a lot bigger. We have put our seeds on the window sill and we will water them everyday and (fingers crossed!) they will start to grow soon.
We made it rain in our class! We loved doing this science experiment.
We put water in a glass with shaving foam on top to create a cloud. Then we used droppers with blue food colouring and put drops of blue on top of the shaving foam. Then we had to wait very patiently until the blue seeped through the ‘cloud and into the sky! Magic!
We are so lucky to have Patrick coming in to us to teach us African Drumming. We look forward to our drumming class every week. Sometimes we even get to have a bit of a dance while Patrick plays. Thank you so much Patrick.
