Marvellous Monkeys

We made these marvellous monkeys this week. We had a lot of circles to cut out as you can see to make our monkeys. They turned out great!!!

Intensive Literacy Lessons

Last week we began Intensive Literacy lessons with Miss Linnane, Miss Kearney, Mrs Daly and Miss Flaherty. Each day from 12pm to 12.30pm we work together in groups and we do various literacy activities (phonics, reading and writing). We are really enjoying these activities and love getting a new and interesting book each day to read in class and at home. Our class wants to say a big THANK YOU to all the teachers involved.

Planting Broad beans

We have been reading the story 'Jack and the Beanstalk' and really loved the story. As we have been learning all about planting seeds in Science lately, we decided to plant some broadbeans (just like Jack did!!!). We are not sure if they are magic broad beans yet, so we will just have to wait and see!!! Firstly, we got a pot and put some soil in it. Then we made a little hole in the soil with our finger and popped a broadbean in. Next, we covered the broadbean with more soil and we watered it. We will take good care of our broad beans and we hope to see them shooting up over the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for their progress!!
