We went for a lovely winter walk around the school.

different colour

leaves we could find,

and collected some

of our favourites.

Don't the boys look fab in their Communion outfits!?

We had a great day celebrating. Thank you to the parents' committee for all the treats!

Science week was so much fun! 

We grew rainbows, mixed magic milk, learned about electricity circuits, made a chemical reaction with baking soda and vinegar and lemon juice, used physics to build towers out of spaghetti and marshmallows, and created 'ooblek', a half solid half liquid goo. It was a little messy but worth it! What a week. 

Our winners from the spaghetti and marshmallow challenge.

One was the tallest, the other was the strongest.

December was a great month. We had lots of fun making Christmas art in our class. We also won the classroom window and door decorating competition, which meant we got a movie day with popcorn.

In January, we have been learning all about Space. We have studied the planets, the sun, the moon, and what it is like to live on the International Space Station. Here is some of the work we have been doing. 

Fun with fractions.

Our school were lucky to get to attend the Stewart's Hospital St Patrick's Day parade. What a spectacular show!

World Book Day was so much fun. We spent the day talking about our favourite books, listening to and writing stories, playing some book hunt games, and dressed up as our favourite characters. 

Look at the 'reading rainbow' we created using our favourite books.

After two years we are delighted by the return of our annual Mad Hatter's Walk in St. Lorcan's. We were blown away by the incredible creativity and inventiveness of the creations we saw around the school and in our class. What an amazing day that also helped us raise funds for our up and coming sensory garden. Well done to everyone who got involved. It was a great end to our second term, and the start of our Easter holidays.

We are so happy to be able to do Buddy Reading again.  The 3rde and 4th class love reading with the boys in Ms. Purtill's class each Friday.
