Life cycle of a butterfly

 The children were fascinated this term with our very own batch of butterfly eggs growing and changing in front of our very eyes! Each day we discussed the changes we could see as the eggs grew from caterpillars, transformed into their chrysalides and then after another 11 days emerge as beautiful Painted Lady butterflies. The excitement when we released them into the wild was immense!

Coding in the classroom

This week the children had their first experience of using Bee-Bots. These exciting, floor robots are designed specifically for use by younger children to introduce them to the world of coding. They are colourful and very child friendly which make them the perfect tool for the children to enjoy their learning. We then progressed to coding on our Ipads using the Bee-bot app. We had lots of fun problem solving whilst also learning the art of patience!

Engineer's week 2024

 Engineer's week has been very hands on for Senior Infants and 1st class this year. We have all worked really hard to create a setting in a shoebox! We had some beautiful city skylines, busy towns, a cinema, a beach and an art museum just to name a few. We focused on building a background which then led to making 3D structures for our trees, bridges and houses. This activity linked in beautifully with our writing topic this term - procedural writing. As always, the children were very proud of themselves and ended the week presenting their projects to the other classes in the school. Very well done to all!
