We had great fun in school when Jane brought Isaac and Jacob in for a visit. I’m not quite sure who was more excited, the teachers or the children! They came to visit us in 3rd class and we had a lot of fun trying to sketch them as part of our art lesson. It was quite difficult to do though as they kept nibbling at our clothes and hair!!
For Geography we have been learning all about the different classifications of rocks. We looked at different rocks and made our observations on them. We then made our own “rocks” out of chocolate, krispies and marshmallows. We first made igneous rock, then sedimentary and finally metamorphic. We then got to taste our “rocks’ and agreed that it was pretty delicious!
March brought about the commemoration of the 1916 rising. We had a brilliant day of dressing up and I particularly enjoyed getting in to the role of a 1916 teacher, beating stick and all! ;) We looked at the old St. Catherines’s corporal punishment book and talked about what school was like in the past.
As part of our work on 1916 we looked at the leaders of the rising and made collages of their faces which turned out really well.
We also had a ceili and third class learned the siege of Ennis and they also learned “an damsha mór” with their buddy class.
In March we had Biodiversity day and learned lots about how all the different life and plant cycles link in to each other. There were also some lovely costumes and well done to everyone who made an effort to dress up. We also did some composting which was a bit dirty but we did get to see a lot of worms!!!
Some outdoor PE fun!
