On Wednesday 28th June the nursery children had a fantastic day away to Tropical World in Letterkenny.  The children really enjoyed looking at the different animals and some children were very brave and stroked a snake and bearded dragon.

The children behaved exceptionally well and listened very well to Tanya our tour guide. We all had fun and we had 24 tired little children on the way home.

Well done to everyone on a successful trip away.

Catch up on the growth of our cress seeds. Some of our seeds have not germinated, can you think why this might be? This is the final week of our growing challenge, let's make it a good one!

Excitedly, we arrived to school today to find that four of our butterflies have emerged from their chrysalides. How amazing they are! We are unsure of when they emerged but we know that it was over the weekend. Since this morning, they have completely changed in colour. We predicted their symmetrical patterns, to our amazement they looked nothing like we had imagined. They were dull in colour, almost like a moth. As the day progressed, two of the butterflies' wings have changed. They now have orange and red throughout their wings. We were a bit shocked at a red liquid that had been expelled, we read our information leaflet and it assured us that this was normal and it is not blood but meconium- essential for the formation of their wings. Have a look at our most recent video blog.

In Year 3 and 4 our final topic is 'Let's get growing'. The children would like to learn about how plants, children and animals grow. We will begin by looking at plants. So far, we have named the different parts of plants and are learning what their jobs are. Using our iPads, the children have researched each of the parts and are observing this first hand in class by planting our own cress seeds. To begin with we were a bit confused as to how some seeds grow in different places even though they hadn't been planted by a person. Some of the children had a question they would like to find the answer to which was, 'Do all seeds need soil to grow?' The cress seeds have proven the answer to this question as they can grow on cotton wool so long as they get watered each day, have sunlight and a bit of heat. Be careful not to add too much water though, they might get too soggy and kill the seeds! We have uploaded video blogs about the growth of our cress seeds, check out our videos!
