First and Second class had great fun planting seeds. We planted cress, peas and spinach seeds. We made small holes using our fingers and placed some seeds into each hole. We covered them with soil and watered them. We placed them in the window to make sure they had enough light.
Look how much our seeds have grown!!!
The boys and girls in first and second class were very lucky to have a very special, woolly visitor come into their class this month. They had learned all about farming, completed farming projects and even watched Big Week on the Farm each night. They were super excited to see Ciara’s daddy coming in with a one day old lamb.
A huge thank you to Willie Doyle for this great learning experience and for answering all of our questions.
3rd – 6th class are sounding superb in their music lessons. All pupils are learning to play the tin whistle. For a lot of them this is their first time learning a musical instrument. We have a great music group formed with a variety of instruments. We look forward to hearing their talents at various school events throughout the year.

We Made Butter!!!
First and Second Class have been learning all about farming. They learned how butter was made in the past. They made their own butter.
We but cream into a jar and shook it as hard as we could. We saw the buttermilk seperate from the butter. We even got a chance to taste the butter on some crackers! Yummmmy……
