We are delighted and excited to be learning to how knit!
We are currently knitting our very own scarves!
We have been learning about seeds and plants and what they need to grow.
We used some egg cartons, glued on some googly eyes and added some pipe cleaners to create our very own caterpillar heads.
We filled each egg carton with cotton wool and added a teaspoonful of cress seeds. We placed our caterpillar heads on the warm windowsill and carefully watered the seeds every day.
The results are just amazing!! Take a look!
The senior room explored chemical energy by making their very own lava lamps, using a mix of oil, water, food colouring and an alka seltzer tablet.
Take a look!
Múinteoir Jen showed us how to make beautiful T-shirts using tie-dying!
We made really amazing designs and are delighted with the results!
We cannot wait to wear them in the summer time!
On Wednesday we had a very special treat. Múinteoir Lorraine organised a drumming lesson for us!
We learned all about how the drums are made, where in the world they originally came from and about all the different sounds they can produce.
We had so much fun!
Our new school garden is complete and we are very excited to watch our beautiful flowers, trees and vegetables coming into bloom.
We celebrated St. Brigid’s Day by making beautiful St. Brigid’s crosses from rushes.
Each cross was carefully woven by each pupil and we had great fun making them!
