This week we said a fond farwell to our dear friends Zuzanna and Igor who returned to Poland with their family after 16 happy years in Ireland. Applause and cheers greeted Igor as he walked through a Guard of Honour, formed by his class mates, on his final walk through the school gate. We wish Zuzanna, Igor and his family every happiness as they return home to Poland.
This week the children were surprised to find a giant Jenga and giant Connect 4 in the play ground. These classic borad games proved to be a great hit with all classes. Playing games like these promote teamwork, strategy, good social skills and communication.
The children in Senior Infants have been observing 5 caterpillars, as they have grown from a tiny size over the past three weeks, to finally become ‘chubby caterpillars’ recently. This week the caterpillars formed into chrsyalis and were transported into a netted enclosure. We now wait for a few days for the caterpillars to emerge as Princess Butterflies.
Ms. Walsh’s class have been working hard on a healthy eating and agri-aware project called Incredible Edibles. Having finished the project, the girls enjoyed some healthy treats in the sunshine to mark the occasion.
This week’s alternative homework was to ‘Make or Bake’ something at home. We say a very big thank you to all the mums, dads and guardians who helped the boys and girls to do this on Thursday night. There were great photos of smooties, cakes and snacks sent in on Seesaw. Well done all!
Here is this week’s photo gallery! With only 14 days left in school until the summer holidays, we can look forward to some great fun experiences before we finish.
