I stayed in the Culloden hotel for two nights with my family over the St. Patrick’s weekend. It was really good fun. It was a very fancy hotel and it is an old building.-Rachel
I went on a leprecon hunt in Carlingford. I didn’t get to see one because I think that the leprecons were hiding on us. I want to go back again to look for them some other day.-Grace

I read a story to one of the Primary Five girls on ‘World Book Day’. The story was called ‘Chicken Licken’. It was a very good book and I read it very well.-Fiona
We read a story about a ‘Baby Grizzle’. He was a monster who likes to eat pizza. His mummy made him a pizza one day but he wouldn’t eat because her wanted red sauce on it. I love red sauce too. I drew the baby grizzle and put labels around my picture.-Grace
I wrote about dolphins. Dolphins live in the water and they like to swim. -Oliwia
I wrote lots of sentences about a big bad wolf. Sentences need capital letters at the start and full stops at the end and you have to sound out the words.-Caitlin T
I made lots of words with paper squares.-Nellie
I wrote lots of sentences about the character of the big bad wolf. I drew a scary picture of the wolf and wrote a caption beside it which said ‘This is a fierce wolf’. Then I drew a speech bubble from the wolf and wrote in it. I put a smiley face on my work because I liked learning about the big bad wolf.-Ella
I made a picture form fruit and vegetables. I used oranges for the eyes, bananas for the mouth. For the cheeks I used red tomatoes and for the ears I used apples. I made earrings from carrots. It was really good fun. I cut everything out very carefully.-Rachel
Our new tpoic is fruit and vegetables. They are healthy for you to eat. We sorted healthy foods from unhealthy foods. I liked cutting and sticking all the different foods into my book.-Blaithin
We made orange juice. You have to cut the oranges and then squeeze them and that makes orange juice. We had it for our snack.-Meida
I made a shopping list on the computer. I wrote apples, oranges, potatoes and grapes.-Natalia
We made stewed apples in the staff room. The apples were hard at the start and then Miss Kavanagh cut them and put them in a saucepan. She heated them up and the apple went soft. We all liked eating them for our snack.-Caitlin K
I made 10p by using two 5ps. I found another way of making 10p. Five 2ps make 10p. I counted out money.-Natalia

I wish I had a hot air balloon for my mummy, my daddy, my nanny, my granda and I. Miss Kavanagh and Mrs McQuillan want to go up in a hot air balloon. We looked on google and there is a place in Belfast that takes you up in them.-Chloe
I did good work in literacy. I wrote about a story called ‘A Dark, Dark Tale and ‘The Grumpalump’. They were different stories because they had different settings. -Caitlin T

I went to the big library with Miss Vardy to read a book.-Kayleigh Q
Our reading book was about feelings and we talked about, happy, sad, jealous and anxious. We know that anxious means worried and that we can talk to the adults in our class if we are worried.-Fiona
We were weighing lots of things in our classroom on the weighing scales. We had to put the item in one pan and the cubes in the pan at the other side and count them. It was good fun. The Bee Bot was very heavy we had to use lots of cubes. The tape was very light and we used 5 cubes to get the scales to balance. -Grace
When we weighed the Bee Bot we couldn’t fit all the cubes in the pan. We had to join the cubes in tens and lay them across the pan so that we could find the weight. We had to count in tens. It was still easy to weigh the Bee Bot.-Ella
I weighed the scissors and the glue. The glue was heavier because the pan on the balance went down and the scissors went up.-Molly
I like it when we make a human number line. Everyone gets a number and they have to find the right place to stand.-Meida
You have to check that all the people are in the right order by counting them.-Natalia
During Lent we are all going to be kind and friendly in school. We made our promises and Sister Mary gave us ashes on Ash Wednesday.-Caitlin K
My birthday was in February, I went to the Fun House with some of the girls from the class. I am six now.-Caitlin T
Blaithin was a very friendly girl and won the friendly award this month. Jacqulin was hardworking and Natalia was helpful. The forgiving award went to Meida. Well done girls, we are very proud of you.
