Today we had a visit from Don Briggs (author) and Naomi Peppard (illustrator) who collaborated on publishing a book called ‘The Boy who Wanted a Dragon’. Don read the book and Naomi showed us how to draw a dragon and how she uses watercolours to paint her illustrations. Our thanks to both of them.
Daisy’s kittens are now 9 weeks old and will be available in the DSPCA for adoption in about 2 weeks time. They are now very curious and fearless. They are also very cute. Thank you Sam for keeping us updated on their progress.
We made puppets and put on some fairy tale puppet shows for Junior Infants. Look at those lovely porridge smells coming from Goldilock’s cottage!
Ms Ryan, our teacher from last year, popped in to say hello and to hear all our news.
Ms Loane brought her new baby girl Maia in to see us. We gave her lovely cards we had made.
Thank you to the 5th class ‘Reading Buddies’ who did a fantastic job of helping the Senior Infants to practise their reading since the October Half-Term.
3rd Class set up their own Crazy Golf course and took turns to putt the ball through each groups obstacles. A few boys and girls got a ‘hole in one’. Watch out Rory McIlroy.
3rd Class were invited to Ballyroan Library to take part in some Harry Potter themed science experiments. Great fun was had making slime and learning about what causes lightning.
3rd and 4th had to put their heads together to work out some S.T.E.M (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) challenges. Each group were given 10 cups, cotton wool, string, some straws and a lego figure. They had to work out the best way to stack the cups into a pyramid shape with the lego figure on top, without their hands touching the cups and the lego figure.
They also took part in some team games out in the yard.
