World Book Day was amazing!! Thank you to everyone who dressed up coming to school. We had a great day!
We had a great Pancake Tuesday.... yum, yum, yum!!!
We had a very fun time with our ‘eggperiment’ for science this week! We put eggs in a jar of water and also a jar of vinegar and we made predictions about what may happen. When we came back to school the next day, the eggs in the water had stayed the same. However, the eggs in vinegar had changed and the outer shell was gone. This meant the egg was squishy and soft. It was so cool!!
Our Spring stroll to find all things 'Spring'. Birds, bees, trees, buds, flowers, nests etc! What a beautiful day! <3
We finished up our zumba on Friday with Rachel and we put on a performance for the whole school! It was so much fun.
February is an exciting month now that Spring has sprung. This gives us great opportunities for making lovely art.

Investigating materials in our classroom for Science!!
Our amazing class won the County Waterford entry in a National Art Competition called 'Someone Like Me' which celebrates differences and encourages inclusion. This was our second year in a row being selected and we should be very proud of ourselves. Everyone worked together on our piece, 'This Is Us' and we were very happy with our work of Art. Kian and Tyler travelled to Dublin on December 6th to collect our prize in Dublin City Hall. We went on the train when everyone else was still in bed and it was all very exciting!! The boys did a great job going up on stage in front of all the other schools and collecting the prize. There were schools all over the country at the prize giving which makes it even more of a privilege to be selected. Well done to all my first and second class for their constant effort and hard work!! Click 'Play' below to follow our day in Dublin.
