On Tuesday, 2nd/3rd class took part in a workshop in Phibsborough library with the fantastic author Patricia Forde. We had lots of fun reading her book ‘Bumpfizzle the Best on Planet Earth’. She entertained us no end with her funny tales about growing up in Galway. She read extracts from the book and she was blown away by all the fantastic questions the boys and girls had for her. We gave this book a resounding thumbs up!
In the Sunshine class we made autumn leaf sun catchers using paper plates, clear contact and autumn leaves.
We cut out the inside of the paper plate and painted the outer edge in lovely autumn colours. We then covered one side with a sheet of contact and chose leaves to stick on to it. We then covered the other side of the sun catcher with contact to seal in the leaves.
They look beautiful hanging on our classroom windows when the sun shines in!
