Science Week 2021
This week was a very exciting week in First Class as we explored lots of different concepts and ideas for Science Week!
We loved making predictions and seeing if they were right or wrong. The children also loved using a variety of materials to conduct our amazing experiments. We really loved seeing the work you all did at home as well in your pictures on Google Classroom! Keep them coming!

Maple Class Benchball
For the past few weeks, the Maple Class have been focusing on honing some of our gross motor skills such as catching, throwing and running. Our practice has culminated in learning to play benchball which includes all of these skills!
The children loved developing their teamwork skills through this game and we had lots of healthy competition and fun. Check out these pictures of our benchball fun and maybe your child can teach you the rules!
This week for Outdoor Classroom Day, Mark Wilkinson of Tyrrelstown House was kind enough to allow us a visit to his beautiful grounds. We explored the beautiful surroundings of Tyrrelstown House and learned all about different leaves from different trees, names of trees, spotted huge mushrooms and even saw a mouse!
The kids had a wonderful time connecting with our natural environment. They were a huge help in filling big bags of leaves for us to turn into compost next year. All in all, a wonderful day out!
Check out the pictures below for a taste of the fun.
