Santa toy

We made a Santa toy today.
It is a toy that uses forces (push and pull) to work.
We can make Santa go up and down the chimney by pushing and pulling the skewer.

We learned lots about habitats, ecosystems, the food chain, and especially about bees.
We were especially impressed at the very interesting samples of bees, honey, eggs, butterflies and bugs that Robin let us look at.
What an interesting talk!
We will try and look after our environment to the best of our abilities!

Learning about Poland, the Lebanon and Portugal

We had two wonderful speakers in to visit our class today to tell us all about their countries.
We had a mum who told us all about Poland, about the country itself and about festivals in Poland.
Marzena also taught us a few words in Polish.
She has spent a lot of time in the Lebanon and so was able to tell us about life in the Lebanon.
We were surprised to hear that it snows there!
Ana told us about some of the Christmas customs in Portugal.  She even baked us a bolo roi cake which they eat on January 6th in honour of the three kings who visited the baby Jesus in the crib.
It is so interesting to hear about life in other countries.
Thank you so much to Marzena and Ana for your great presentations today.

Visit to the Christmas Market

We had a fantastic day today at the Galway Christmas Market.
Ms. McLoughlin's and Ms. Cunningham's classes walked by the railway line to Eyre Square along with Mr. Gleeson who organised everything for us, and Ms. Donnellan and Mr. Elwood.
We had "the best day ever!" at the market.
We completed a maths trail, visited the Christmas Market, visited Santa and had a ride on the carousel or the ferris wheel.
We even walked all the way back to school (over 14,000 steps today!)
A huge Thank You to Mr. Gleeson for such a wonderful day!
