We have been learning all about Autumn and the changes it brings. We walked around the school grounds looking for signs of Autumn.
We really enjoyed exploring the school garden!
Look at our tree-mendous art display!! The boys decorated their autumn trees with lots of different colours and the corridor outside our classroom looks absolutely fantastic with these masterpieces on show!

Oh So Slimy!!
This was such a fun experiment. Depending on how you mix the ingredients, you will get something that is stringy, slimy or more like mála.
Take a look at the video below!
We had such a great day on Friday as we came to school dressed up in our Halloween costumes.
We danced to 'The Monster Mash', played musical zombies and really enjoyed drawing the wart on the witch! We also went on a spooky walk around Palmerstown!
Happy Halloween from everyone in Room 15.
November Assembly Award Winners
Congratulations to James, Charlie and Noah. Keep up the wonderful work!
We have been learning about Winter and penguins. We made these lovely penguins recently.
Some penguins facts....
1) Penguins belong to the bird family but they cannot fly.
2) They have a special layer of feathers which helps to keep them warm.
3) Emperor penguins are the largest penguins in the world.
4) Finally, penguins are excellent swimmers and can outswim a lot of their predators.
Wishing you all a very safe and happy Christmas and new year!
Happy Valentine's Day!
