1st class have been learning about minibeasts. Last week we went on an exciting adventure in search of some creepy crawlies. We found ants, woodlice, worms, spiders slugs and snails. We had lots of fun! Have a look at some of our pictures.
We have been learning about animals in Ms. McGrath's class. We learned about farm animals and wild animals. There are lots of different animals that live on the farm. Cows, sheep, horses and pigs all live on the farm. The farmer looks after all his animals.
We can visit wild animals in the zoo. The zookeepers look after all the animals in the zoo. we talked about our favourite animals. Tiria's favourite animals are deer, squirrels and horses. Octavia's favourite animals are squirrels, deer and turtles. Ms. McGrath's favourite animals are elephants, owls and penguins.
We really enjoyed learning about animals. Look at the pictures we found of our favourite animals below.

Room 9 went on a mini beast hunt to explore insects and their habitats. We found worms, wood lice, spiders, centipedes, slugs and ants. Last week we learned lots about ants. We found out that ants have stingers and that they can carry a 100 times their weight. The queen ant lays eggs under ground and these are called 'grubs'. Grubs grow into worker ants. The workers build the nest and gather food, while the queen goes on laying eggs. The nest may contain over a million ants.
On May 8th last, the 6th class girls in Room 16 presented their Blue Star project on the European Union to all classes from 2nd to 6th, as well as the parents of Room 16 and parents of the Romanian pupils in our school.
We were honoured to have the Romanian Ambassador to Ireland, H.E. Mrs Breazu, and a local councillor, Mr. Paul McAuliffe, as our guests, and to have them speak to the assembly about the importance of Europe.
We proceeded to sample European foods as brought in by the 6th class girls, and our visitors and parents enjoyed many varied tastes.
Mrs. Phelan's class are hoping to receive their Blue Star flag in recognition of all their work this year on their project.
In school we watched a series of short nature clips about the most colourful species in the animal kingdom.
We recreated the patterns and shapes of these animals' coats and skins on paper using paint and pastels.
We then used our drawings as inspiration for some very cool fashion items and accessories.
Check out our creations as we model them below!
