Summer Camp August 2021

We held a very successful summer camp the last week of August. The sun shone on us and the girls had a ball.

Making Butter

Last Friday in first class we made our own butter. We had been learning about the farm in SESE, and specifically how cows provide us with food. How did we make the butter? We simply used a jar and some cream and shook the jar to the beat of Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off”. We […]

Red Panda Adoption

First class adopted a red panda from Dublin Zoo – which we named Dearg. When the zoo appealed for support to help the animals, the girls were dying to help. So after much debate we decided to adopt a red panda. We have learned all about them and received the most amazing adoption pack from […]

Rainbow of Happiness 🌈

Buzzing to be back 🐝

Crazy Hair and Pizza Party

We have worked so hard on the run up to Christmas that we didn’t even have the energy to brush our hair one day – so we had a crazy hair day! We finished off our last full day in school of 2020 with a pizza party, featuring Christmas crackers and lovely Christmas music! We […]

Little Elves in First Class

We had great fun applying to be elves recently, and we were thrilled when we finally became fully fledged elves just in time for Christmas. 🎄 we created these fabulous pieces of art to show our best elf self. 🤩

Snow is falling …❄️

First class have been talking about how they would love to see some snow this Christmas and build their own snowmen. So, while we wish and hope for the real thing we decided we would take matters into our own hands. We made our own fake snow and had so much fun playing with it […]
