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 🌈

First class created a rainbow of happiness. Each girl had their own colour and wrote all of the things that make her happy on her part of the rainbow. We look at it when we need reminding of how full our lives are, and we hope it brings a smile to anyone who passes it. […]

Engineers Week in First Class

We loved Engineers Week in first class. We built a domino effect using books, 3D shapes and Jenga blocks. It fell many times before completion but it was all part of the fun. 😊 We had so much fun watching it all fall at the end. It wasn’t perfect, but that’s what engineers week is all about, […]

Buzzing to be back 🐝

First class are a buzz of excitement to be back at school. We’ve been having so much fun together in our first few days back. We’ve been looking for signs of spring, painting, reading and writing and playing with our friends. We love being back at school so much. 🐝😊

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 […]

Virtual Toy Show

First class and fifth class had a wonderful day today. We were so excited for the Late Late Toy Show all week. But, we were MORE excited for our own virtual Toy Show today. Each girl brought in her favourite toy or book from home. Talked about it and answered lots of questions. Of course it […]

Be the “I” in kind 🥰

We had a brilliant discussion surrounding this gorgeous phrase today ‘Be the “I” in kind’. The girls gave some amazing examples of how we can be the “I” in kind. I even got some cards made for me out of the blue from these thoughtful and kind girls 🥰 Each one of them really tries […]

A messy end to a messy science week

On Friday last we had a crazy, messy and fun end to our fun filled science week, where we learned lots of new things. We made ooblek and we learned that it was both a solid and a liquid…we just could not get our heads around it! 🤔 but we had a great time playing […]
