We are preparing for Garden Show Ireland this week. Our theme is Nursery Rhymes. We will each have a plant in the garden that we create. We are planning with John. We planned together after we had planted our potatoes. Our potatoes were winners last year.
Our Easter Assembly was really well attended. Reenacting the Last Supper, Garden of Gethsemane and The Resurrection helped us to understand the real meaning of Easter
On Easter Sunday we presented a cheque to Father McHugh during Mass. We are so proud of our fundraising events for Trocaire. Our money will be used to build a new school for Kumba and her community in Sierra Leone. Last year a devastating landscape landslide destroyed her village in 4 minutes. Our money will be used for food, books and uniforms so that Kumba's community can rebuild their lives.
We are working on character studies in Literacy. We can use rich , exciting adjectives and we can evaluate our own work.
Spring is here at last. We worked with John to spread the wood chips. When we tried to do a pond dip for the Northern Ireland Museums survey on Tue 20 March, there was a huge problem. We had to crack every piece of ice from the frozen pond but we really enjoyed doing that. We will continue with the pond survey when the temperature is warmer. We are hoping to find adult frogs in a couple of months.
Ceilidh preparations aside we are learning about tessellation using 2D shapes.
Wer wish these amazing ladies the very best of luck in their drama competition in Paris. Bonne Chance.
We are organising fund raising events for Trocaire. How would you like to balance 20p on a lemon for 10 seconds. Our events are amazing and range from Talent Shows to What's in the box; really scary marmalade and cat food, that's what.
We are studying Saint Patrick and preparing for our Ceili on Thursday 15 March

We are working with partners on fundraising events for Trocaire. We are learning about Sierra Leone. Kumba and her sister Fatu live in this African country. Their school has been destroyed by a mud slide and we are raising funds for them to have a new school. We are bringing Kumba's school to life in our classroom. This is part of our global learning. We are learning about Global Goals. We aim to end poverty by 2030.
