Biodiverstiy Talk

We had a very interesting visit today from Robin Barry, an environmental scientist. He  spoke to us about biodiversity and the importance of looking after the world around us. He also brought along some very interesting specimens for us to look at!

Spring has Sprung!

The senior infants in room 8 are learning all about spring in aistear. This morning some of them went on a spring walk. 

The children saw lots of interesting things, like a bird’s nest, new leaves on trees and even a nice big worm! The children also saw the daffodils that they had planted last autumn. They were very excited to see that the potatoes they planted are also  starting to grow. 

They were very happy to see that the frogspawn in the school courtyard has now grown into tadpoles.

Tramore GAA

We were delighted to welcome some members of Tramore GAA to our school assembly this morning. They told us about the great range of activities available in the local club. It was particularly nice to see so many of our past pupils, many of whom were introduced to Gaelic games when they were pupils in our school.

Planting Potatoes

The children in senior infants,  room 8 have been very busy lately. Here’s a report about what they’ve been up to from Zack:

We got seed potatoes.

We put them in an egg box.

We chitted them.

Today we went outside.

We covered them in clay in a potato bag.

We will dig them up in June.
