In school we were learning all about the lifecycle of the butterfly. We got to observe caterpillars grow and go through the different stages of its life and turn into a butterfly. On Friday we released our butterflies, it was lovely to see the children handle the butterflies with such care.
Last Friday the junior room went on a nature walk. We walked down the Cultree road and into the fields. The children listened to the different sounds of the countryside and in groups they made a face out of different things they could find in the field. The boys and girls enjoyed the walk and found some interesting items to put in their nature bag.
On Friday the 18th of June, 3rd – 6th class participated in fun water activities on the River Shannon in Banagher. It is important that in these times, children have fun social activities to enjoy. We thank our Board of Management for funding this activity.
