Last Friday 8th October, the children celebrated Animal Day.
Lots of the children’s pets came to the playground for a Pet Blessing.
We also had a visit from Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland.
Earlier in the week the children had a No-Uniform day to raise funds for AADI. An impressive €309 was raised.
At the end of term the children enjoyed a wonderful nature walk. They learned of ways to help the environment and the benefits of biodiversity. They identified a huge collection of moths which had been caught in preparation for the class, and also saw and identified wildflowers, trees and several birds, listening carefully for the bird song.

Today we started our fun day in the tennis club with our annual sports. We then walked to The Merries and spent some time on the amusements and back to school for an outdoor Magic Science Show. The children had a fantastic day enjoying the many attractions available on our doorstep.
This year prizegiving was held on zoom for the second year in a row. All children were presented with their prizes the following day in school. Below is a selection of the children with their cups and shields.

In Aistear our current theme is water. Today we learnt about floating and sinking. The children all made a boat and they were put to the test in a paddling pool. Please click on this link to see a video of their creations.
