The children wrote a letter to Santa to see how he was getting on and to tell him how good all the children in Room 13 have been this year. We went out for a walk to deliver our letter personally at the Post Office! Everyone was very excited and had a wonderful time. We also called into the church to look at the Advent wreath.
lapping up the glorious summer sunshine,
playing old school playground games on the grass,
running for our lives and racing in relays for sports day,
predicting the outcome of the World Cup,
and flying our hopes and dreams for second class on paper planes,
…Room 11 are embracing the Joys of June!
We had a brilliant day at Energy Fun Centre!
Room 11 and Room 12 made the most of the beautiful sunny day today! Hopefully we will get lots more opportunities to dine al fresco!
We have started work on our next Green Flag. This year we will be trying to win a flag for Travel and Transport.
We have set up a new Green Team and we went out together on a walkability audit with Sandra Pokrant from An Táisce.
We are trying to establish a safe walking route to school where people might carpool and then Park n’ Stride from Bayside Shopping Centre. As the name suggest this would mean parking your car at the shopping centre and then walking to school from there. This would hopefully mean less traffic around the school in the mornings and afternoons.
On our walk we discovered lots of interesting things
We are very lucky to have a safe pathway from the shops to the school. There is plenty of room for people and buggys to walk along. On our walk we heard the birds singing and saw some lovely trees and plants.
We think that it would be really super if some families that travel to school by car might consider having a go at “Park n’ Stride” from Bayside shopping centre, especially coming into the lovely summer weather
The Green Team
We had a great time using mystery boxes and guessing what was inside. Here are some of the items we had to guess and descibe using our sense of touch only:
We had to put our hands inside the box without looking and then guess what we were feeling and write a description of how it felt.
We were not quite sure what to expect inside the boxes, we used words such as: fluffy, soft, hard, smooth, flexible, rubber, grassy, wet, squishy and rough to describe the different objects. Here are some of our reactions to what was inside the box.
We made some terrific paper portraits.
We think the similarities are uncanny but don’t take our word for it, have a look and see for yourself…
We have been studying our galaxy The Milky Way.
Take a look at some of our astronauts and what they saw on their space adventures.
We also wrote some amazing stories about our space adventures.
There was great excitement in Room 12 today! We were quietly doing our work when we heard beautiful singing from outside our window! There was a big flock of birds eating our bird cakes! We spied on the starlings so that we wouldn’t frighten them away. They had colourful designs on their feathers. They had beautiful, sweet singing voices. By lunchtime, there was only half a bird cake left! We are glad that the birds liked our bird cakes.
Watch out for some fine fat starlings flying around Bayside!
