To celebrate Computer Science Education Week (4th- 10th of December) as well as Europe Code Week (7th-22nd of December), First and Second class have taken part in coding workshops with Ms. Ryan over the past few days. We are having lots of fun!
1st Class/2nd Class
Margaret from the D.S.P.C.A. visited us recently and brought along some (not so) little friends. We were all excited to hold the Giant African Snails and watch them slowly come out of their shells as they felt the warmth of our hands.
During Arts Week, First and Second class had the fantastic opportunity of visiting Stratford College to take part in a workshop conducted by the illustrator Melissa Doran, who has illustrated the wildlife book ‘Naturama’.
Melissa showed us books she had made when she was a little girl, which were all about nature. We then used microscopes to examine leaves and make rubbings, before illustrating our own ‘Seasons’ books.
We had a fantastic time, and Melissa was kind enough to give us a copy of ‘Naturama’ for our classroom.
A huge thank you to Ms. Reynolds for organising the visit and for inviting us!
We've been very busy this term in 1st and 2nd class. Between exploring shapes, states of matter and watching an icy snowman melt, we made some beautiful penguins, cracked morse code, wrote lovely wintery poetry, discovered which objects float and sink, learned about the unsinkable Titanic, perfected handstands, sang sweet Irish songs, imagined holidaying in Brazil and so much more!
Who knows what great work we'll do next term! Enjoy the winter holidays!!
Have you ever imagined what life would be like in a snowglobe?! We have and we think it'd be lots of fun!
