Ms. Wall, Tessa and some of the girls from Senior Infants have put together a super virtual tour which shows us all what the girls have been getting up to, and a chance to share with each other virtually!
From Fota Wiilflife Park (homestyle), to tours around mansions and picnics it is clear to see that lots of fun is being had. Thank you to all who contributed and to Ms. Wall for putting it together.
This week the girls in 4th class had to choose a famous Irish Sports Star and write a short biography about them. Some really interesting biographies written by the girls. michelle5 Look at some of their great work below. First class … Continue reading →

I hope you are all enjoying your Easter holidays. Today we released the butterflies so they can go and play together and make new friends in the garden. Tessa has told all of the butterflies about our school and all of the girls in our class so make sure and keep looking, you might just see one of our special butterflies in your garden or outside. Make sure and say hello if you see them and remember to be very gentle.
I hope you are having lots of fun at home. Tessa and Ms. Wall have some very exciting news. Our first butterfly has emerged from their chrysalide. Tessa was very excited. Look at the difference in the butterfly’s wings after a couple of hours, they have dried off and you can see the beautiful colours!!
Tessa decided to call the butterfly Tabby.More exciting news on the butterflies over the next few days so make sure to check back. We will release them after a few days with plenty of pictures to follow.
Our caterpillars have now formed into chrysalides so it was time to move them to their butterfly habitat. There was a lot of wiggling and shaking when we moved them but they are now in their new home ready for their beautiful transformation. One of the chrysalides didn’t stick to the lid so he will emerge as a butterfly from the piece of tissue. We will have our five class butterflies within the next week, how exciting 😁 I hope you are all keeping well and listening to all the adults at home.
The caterpillars have gotten really big and they have shed their exoskeletons already. They will be ready to cocoon in the next few days as they have started to make their way to the top of the pot. They are eating loads like the Munching Crunching Caterpillar in the story we read together in school. They are eating lots of food to get lots of energy for their big transformation. P.S. I also got a little visitor this week who decided to come and help me with the caterpillars. Look at the pictures to see do you recognise my visitor?
