Garda Visit

Garda Declan came to explain his job to us today. He has a very important job keeping all the people in our community safe. He showed us lots of interesting tools he uses in his job. We asked him LOTS of questions and told him LOTS of things, some of which our teachers thought were very funny. Mammy and daddy, remember to wear your seatbelt now ;)

Lots of words

We are learning lots of words. Teacher hides words in the classroom and it was our job to find the word she asked for.
Our word puddles are getting very very long now!!!

Pastel Art

We loved smudging today. U make a mark and then smudge and spread the pastel as far as it will go.


We had fun with long and short today. We learned length goes from top to bottom. We placed the strings in order of length.

Beatrix Potter

Teacher's favourite of all time books when she was a little girl were Beatrix Potter's books.
We are reading lots of her stories in school. We like her because she is an author but also an illustrator.

Beatrix Potter (28 July 1866 – 22 December 1943) was an English author, illustrator, natural scientist and conservationist best known for her imaginative children’s books featuring animals such as those in The Tale of Peter Rabbit which celebrated the British landscape and country life.
