Baby chicks

We have been learning about different types of birds for the start of spring.
This week we made chicks and nests for art.
We painted half a paper plate brown and decorated it with strips of brown paper to look like real twigs.
Next we picked our favourite three colours and cut out ovals to make three little chicks. We decorated the chicks with googly eyes and feathers. 

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!!

Raising of the Irish Flag

Today we raised the Irish flag in memory of the 1916 Easter Rising.
We read our own proclamation.
We all sang the National Anthem while the tricolour was raised.

Baking Easter Nests!

Today we baked some lovely edible Easter nests as a treat for our Easter Holidays.
We read the list of ingredients and steps together and gathered everything we would need.
First we melted the chocolate.
Then we took turns stirring in the Cornflakes for the nest.


    After we had mixed all the cornflakes into the melted chocolate and the mixture was ready, We                                                               spooned it into bun cases.
               Then we each got a turn to decorate our own bun with some eggs and baby chicks.
                                           We think they look nearly too good to eat!!
