We released our butterflies!

Of the 10 caterpillars we first had, 8 grew into healthy butterflies. 7 of them flew off today, but 1 who we named Crystal wasn't ready yet. She will join her butterfly friends tomorrow in the big wide world.

Sports day fun!

We had great fun at sports day today. After the parade, we went to the p.e hall to play bowling,  throwing to score points, and hurdles. In the junior yard, we played with hula hoops and beanbags. We did our sack race, potato and spoon race and running race in the field. In the afternoon there was still time for football, hockey, basketball, tennis and our daily mile!

Our caterpillars are growing!

First Holy Communion

We made our first holy communion on Saturday 19th May and teacher is so proud of us. All the hard work paid off as everyone was so well behaved and did their jobs perfectly. The day could not have gone better, the sun even shone for us! Here are a few photographs of us in school today.

Our caterpillars arrived!

Today our caterpillars arrived! They are very small but will grow to 10 times their size before making their chrysalis. We have also been learning about the life cycle of the butterfly through the story in Gaeilge " Donal and chluimh agus an-ocras air."
