We got a delivery of some new materials for our class. It was so exciting. We had lots of fun making house and even a village that our friends can come to visit.



Maths Time

Ready, Go, Set, Maths Time for all! We love doing our maths groups with Mr. Walsh, Ms. Kavanagh and Mr. Gilblin.


We played maths games and learned lots about patterns, sorting and numbers. Numbers are fun.

History Experience

We had a special visitor to our class on Tuesday. Her name was Annie. She told us all about her time in school.


We asked lots of questions and found out that school in Annie’s time was very different. She had to share her colouring pencils with her whole class and she had no exciting songs to help her to learn her sounds. image-36ed976ada348962729a6289de3611d8bc58df2ab1e231fe569bc93176001cfc-V

We sang songs for Annie.


Annie made us all some lovely rice crispy buns as a treat.

Red Mountain Farm

On Wednesday we went on our school tour to Red Mountain Farm. It was so much fun. We left the school on a big bus and it drove us all the way to Farm.

When we got there we had a quick snack before heading off to explore the farm.   P10003522015-05-27 10.35.08

 Then we all went off in different groups to explore the whole farm. It was so much fun. We got to drive tractors and go for a trip around the paddock.
