Architects of the Future

In Susan’s 2nd class, we learned about Gaudi and created gorgeous paper mosaics in the style of his work. We then learned about Hundertwasser, who was also inspired by Gaudi. Hundertwasser created wonderful architecture that was unique, environmentally-friendly and a little bit whacky. Inspired by Hundertwasser, we created our own buildings from recycled and found […]

Learn Together Displays

It was with a heavy heart that Susan took down our Sikhism display from outside Fionnuala’s office, but she replaced it with a Passover one, and then with a Judaism one, so she got over it! Even though we didn’t learn all about Islam this year, we did learn about Ramadan. So, watch this space […]

Incredible Edibles #2 – Gardening with Gareth

We had great fun today with Gareth, Senan and Daire’s Dad. He’s a horticulturalist, so he came in to help us plant out our Incredible Edibles seedlings. We didn’t mind that it was raining, as that was good for our freshly planted-out plants. Here are some photos of the fun we had. Thanks Gareth!
