Seachtain na Gaeilge in Room 13

Room 13 had a wonderful SnG! The boys and girls spent time preparing treasure hunts for all the 2nd classes in St Louis. These hunts brought the children all around the school and they all even found a duais (prize) of milseán at the end!

Bee seed bombs in Room 13

As part of the action to achieve our 5th green flag for biodiversity, we are looking at ways to encourage life in our school. Ms Ivers kindly came in and taught us about the importance of bees and the ways different countries are helping them. Using clay, soil and seeds we created bee seed bombs which is perfect for pollinators. We can’t wait until the weather is drier to put these into some grassy/wild areas!

Learning new skills in Room 13

We are really enjoying having the students in from De la Salle school teaching us different sports. So far we have done rugby skills, football and tag rugby.

Pancake Tuesday in Room 13

We were so lucky that Ms Stone (expert pancake maker) came into our class to show us how to make the perfect pancake. To make the batter you need flour, milk and eggs. We all got the chance to flip the pancakes. Did you know the world’s largest pancake is bigger than 15m in diameter?!!!
