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:
There was a fairy woodland there. We were very quiet and tip-toed through the trees:
Hard at work:
One of the highlights:
We nearly lost a few people in the ball pool!!!
Some videos of us feeding the animals:
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.
At the end of this week’s class we learned a traditional African dance. Here we are performing it. Thanks Patrick.
Erik and Yvonne made their Holy Communion last week. Erik looked very handsome in his suit and Yvonne wore a beautiful dress. Congratulations Erik and Yvonne.
Look at our crazy clay monsters!
What a beautiful day we had today. The sun was shining! A perfect day to go visit the Lough near our school. First we took a trip into the church where we looked at the stained glass windows and the altar. Then we said a prayer to Holy Mary as May is the month of Mary.
Next we set off to the Lough where we played in the playground and saw the swans and the ducks. We even saw some really cute ducklings.
We were exhausted at the end of our walk so we all lay down for a rest in the shade before heading back to school.
Long may the sun shine! 🙂
We made shamrock hats and Irish flags for St. Patrick’s Day. I’m sure the mums and dads are going to love the copious amounts of gold glitter we decorated them with. Then we dressed up in green coats. Teacher thought we looked like leprechauns but we insisted that we were St. Patrick. Here we are waving our flags. Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone.
Andrew celebrated his 6th birthday in school today. Here he is wearing the birthday hat.
We sang him the birthday song and then he blew out the candles
But teacher had played a trick on us. The candles kept re-lighting. So we all had to help Andrew blow out the candles.
Happy birthday Andrew!
Today is World Book Day. We all dressed up as characters from our favourite books. We really enjoyed acting out our new personas for the day.
