Marla Snails

We were very proud of our marla snails. We worked very hard to roll out our marla into long snakes before rolling them into snail shapes. Look at how happy we are.


First Day

We had a lovely first day in school. We had lots of fun exploring our classroom and meeting our new friends. Teacher is looking forward to the year ahead.



Ice-cream Party

Today we had an ice-cream party in our class. As we won’t see Deirdre, our Speech Therapist for the rest of this school year, she brought in ice-cream to treat us. We had to ask for our preferred flavour of ice-cream and the toppings that we would like. We were very good at asking the questions and using our new vocabulary. Yum, Yum! See you in September Deirdre.


Happy Birthday Pricia

Happy birthday to one of our Speech Therapists, Pricia. 21 again!!! We were so good at keeping the party a secret. Pricia got a huge surprise when she came into the classroom. 20160601_12434620160601_124355


School Tour


We had our school tour on Monday. We went to Tír na Sí Farm in Watergrasshill. The weather was beautiful. Here are some pictures we took on the day.

We even got to feed some of the animals:


They even had some unusual animals – alpacas and llamas:20160530_11593620160530_115633

There was a fairy woodland there. We were very quiet and tip-toed through the trees:


We knocked on the doors to see if any of the fairies would come out to say hi:20160530_11420920160530_113726IMG-20160531-WA001020160530_11370020160530_11350520160530_113425

Hard at work:


Crazy golf.


One of the highlights:



We nearly lost a few people in the ball pool!!!


Some videos of us feeding the animals:



African Drumming

For the last few weeks we have been trying out African Drumming. It has been so much fun. Patrick is our drumming teacher. We learned about the different sounds an African drum can make and all the different rhythms you cam play on the drums.
