Classes

Congrats sixth class on your graduation!

Well done to Ms. Neff’s sixth class boys and girls who graduated with flying colours from their Junior Achievement.

 

”Collette Rohan joined us every Tuesday morning to do fun activities with us. We thoroughly enjoyed solving crimes, learning about our bodies and making periscopes. Thank you Collette for taking the time out of your day to spend with us. We really appreciate it. And who knows, there may be a few future scientists among us.”

Spring

Our theme this month has been the season of Spring. We have been reading lots of spring stories and learning spring poems. Yesterday we went out to the garden to look for signs of spring. We saw that the daffodils we planted are blooming. We found buds and cherry blossoms growing on trees. We even found nests. We can’t wait to see if baby birds hatch in the nests.

Our Flag Making Workshop

Today our class took part in a flag making workshop. We are so lucky! We really enjoyed it. Our flags will be flying high up over the Shandon Bells in June! There will be a thousand flags flying high altogether. Check back next week to see Part 2 of our workshop….

Our Skype call to Turkey.

We had a very exciting day today! We made a skype call to Turkey! The boys and girls in Turkey are learning about play all over the world. They wanted to ask us some questions. We told them all about the games we love to play in Ireland and they told us about some of their favourite games. It was very exciting. Did you know that the boys in girls in Turkey love the Gangham Style dance. We all danced together and could see each other on the camera. Here are some of the photographs.
