Planting seeds

3rd and 4th class planted some seeds and have been busy watering and looking after them.  We are delighted that they are starting to grow.

Tie dying

The children in 3rd and 4th have been very busy with their teacher Ms. Regan this week, she has been working on some tie dying with them.  The children really enjoyed working with this new technique.

Chinese New Year

Rebecca’s mammy Lucy came in to 1st and 2nd class last week to teach the children about Chinese New Year.  This year it is the year of the dog so Lucy showed the children how do create a dog on red paper.  Red is a lucky colour in China.  She made dumplings and prawn crackers for the children and they were delicious.  She showed the children how to write ‘Happy New Year’ in Chinese calligraphy.  The children had made Chinese dragons to welcome Lucy to our class. It was a very enjoyable morning, thank you Lucy.
