Workshop in Phibsborough Library with author Patricia Forde

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!

Tree Day 2018

Today, October 4th, is Tree Day 2018.
The Sunshine class went for a walk to the Phoenix Park where we looked at some trees and noticed their different leaves and bark.
We saw that lots of the leaves have changed colour and fallen off the trees. We collected some leaves to bring back to school.
We also saw a family of swans going for a walk!
