A bat in our class

Jordan found a little bat by his window at home. Unfortunately it had died. He brought it in to school to show us all. We all had a look at the bat. We could see its wings, tail, ears, toes. We wonder what happened to it.

Planting Seeds

Today we planted some seeds. We are trying to grow tomatoes from seed. Teacher brought in some soil and some compost from her garden. We talked about compost and how to make good compost from left-over food and peelings. We had 13 tomato seeds. We wonder how many will grow. Tomorrow we are going to plant broad beans. We put them into a cup of water overnight to help soften the seeds. Tomorrow we are going to plant them in some interesting ways.
March 19th 2009. Look at how big our broad beans have grown.

Féile Scoildrámaíochta

We are ready to perform now. Our story Teach Ró-Bheag is interesting. Look at our great costumes. We have a family, farmers, postmen, milkman, gardaí, doctors, a nurse, firemen and painters.
Tá muid ag baint an-taitneamh as an bhFéile Dramaíochta. Tá muid réidh anois le gach rud, agus ag tnú go mór leis an gcomórtas ar an Déardaoin.

The Mulkerrins Brothers

The Mulkerrrins Brothers came to visit our school to show us Irish music and dancing. They are great. We hope they do very well in their TV appearance on March 15th. Good Luck boys.

Space Art

We are talking about space and the planets. We used paper and coloured chalks to make really cool space and spacecraft pictures.We also drew really nice space pictures.

Fun in the Snow

We are having a very cold week. We have had frost, ice and even some snow. We went outside in the snow when it was snowing. We tried to look at the 6 sided snowflakes but they melted very quickly.
