We had a lot of success exploring the school grounds today! We worked as scientists, even before we made a break for the outdoors. As a class, we predicted what we might find living in the local habitat. We then went on to use our senses of listening, seeing, touching and smelling to observe and identify a variety of living things. Armed with paper, pencils and a camera, we recorded our findings. Some of the minibeasts were a little camera-shy but we managed to snap quite a few. Take a look...
What a beautiful day for the girls in R.16 to visit the Botanic Gardens today. We buddied up with senior infants to walk to the gardens. Ms.O'Byrnes class then went to visit the rose garden while Ms. Phelans class saw several of the sculptures on view. Once back at school the girls were delighted to draw their favourite sculpture from their visit.
A few more photos from the harvest this week.
Amazing projects form the girls based on their ideas of what a Cow Planet would look like. Based on a song called 'Cow Planet' the girls used their imagination to create spectacular pieces of work showing diverse and beautiful places where their cows live. Ms. Phelan is so impressed by the standard of work shown by these girls. Well done to each of you on the time and effort put into your projects.
The girls in 6th class in R.16 have been learning about Irish ruins and buildings in history. As part of this study, they created lovely projects in groups to recreate these buildings still to be seen today.
Today, every class helped pick some fruit and vegetables for Harvest Day. We found some rhubarb, peas, tomatoes, squash and carrots of all sizes as well as many more vegetables. We have some very large sunflowers that each class are going to dry out and use the seeds again for next year. Thanks to our amazing gardener Terry that works hard keeping the garden in shape every year. Happy Harvest Day!!
