We spent a sunny Monday afternoon making 'pinch pots' and then creating our own designs from clay. We can't wait to paint them!
We are studying invertebrates in room 7, and decided to make a wormery to observe their movements. We have it covered in black paper as we know worms don't like light. We have already noticed that the layers of soil are starting to mix slightly and have seen two worms out at the edge of the bottle on separate occasions. It is very interesting to observe, and we are sketching and changes we notice in our copies.
We had a visitor, to school in preparation for St. Brigid's Day. Ann taught us how to weave using a wooden tool, known as a loom and also using a bicycle wheel! Collectively, all the classes had made a fabulous St. Brigid's cloak by the end of the day. A few of us made St. Brigid's crosses too.
