Children enjoying investigating rose hips.
P3 had a wonderful time at Slieve Gullion. I am sure they have told you all about Shimmer Sharon. Here are the photographs.
Teachers and children both loved the visit of Laura Samuels, Commonwealth Triple Jump medallist. We all joined in the circuit training with enthusiasm. It was tough!
We were all very excited to go up to The Wilds and do some initial preparation to the P3 area. Since then we have been working hard in school to find out about bees so that we can write some facts to hang from our bamboo structures. I think we will wait until after Easter to plant our flowers so that we will be here to monitor them.
P3 children once again enjoyed the Amazing Journey presentation, which included some food and dressing up!
We had a very busy and exciting day as we made big bugs, played the bee game and took part in the Hit The Button challenge. Connie won the prize for the best costume.
World Book Day
Group photos of our amazing characters and our worthy winners Heidi, James and Ria.
Everybody in P3 enjoyed making porridge and adding the toppings of their choice. Although photos were taken of each group, not all of them seem to have come out, so here are the few that did!
Connie's mummy brought in her month-old baby Lottie for us all to see. We talked about new babies and what they need and how that changes as we get older. Everybody had a cuddle and Lottie blissfully slept through it all!
David and Paxton
The children in P3 enjoyed meeting David with his guide dog, Paxton. David showed us many different things, including, Braille books, talking watches, magnifying glasses and harnesses.
P3 managed to dodge the rain and had an enjoyable time in the wild area. We made group posters afterwards.
