A table is laid with a cloth, on which we have a statue of the Virgin Mary, a blessed candle, rosary beads and some wildflowers from Ms. Furness’ garden.
Thank you Siún for bringing in some lovely flowers for the alter last week too 🙂
The altar was put up on the first of May and it will stay there ’til the end of the month.
You can also see our Parish Information Booklets that we made together in groups.
The parents association kindly ordered Butterfly Growing Kits for the 2nd and 4th classes this year. They arrived last month. We received two containers with tiny caterpillars inside.
In Room 8, we have been very busy observing our caterpillars as they grow and change! We learned about the life cycle of the butterfly and sang a cool song about metamorphosis to help us learn about the different stages of their development. I’m sure the girls would be happy to sing it for you if you asked them!
We were VERY excited on Friday when, just after our maths stations, Ivana noticed a little movement in our butterfly hatching habitat. One of our butterflies transitioned from its chrysalis into a beautiful butterfly! An hour or so later, another butterfly appeared, leaving behind his chrysalis.
Look at our photos below!
Also, thank you Anna Grimes for bringing in a wonderful book on the Life Cycle of the Butterfly! 🙂
The theme of the art competition was “My Ideal Pet”. This could have been the children’s own pet, an animal they would like to own, or a clever mix of different animals if they wanted to, to create something entirely new!
Look at our fantastic entries below.
We are very artistic and creative in Room 8!
The Clock and Tables!

The girls have been very busy working in groups and researching for their projects on Italy and The Romans in preparation for our Italian Day on Tuesday 20th February.
Don’t forget to pop into Room 8 at 9am to see all of our wonderful work, projects, costumes, art and creativity, and to hear all about what we have learned over the past few weeks about Italy and The Romans!
We hope you can make it! 🙂

Welcome to our 4th Class Blog!
The girls in Room 8 are settling into fourth class very well and have been working hard this year. We are currently revising our 3rd class maths skills. We have also discussed how working with numbers becomes a lot easier when you have learnt your times tables!
So to make it easier to learn the tables, here are a few fun websites and games that may help. These websites have been checked for suitability but please monitor your daughter carefully while using the Internet as she may navigate away.
Keep up the great work girls.

We are all very excited about our Bird Study in Room 8!
We will be working in groups, researching the Sparrowhawk and the Goldfinch.
As well as the lovely books and posters some of you brought in, there are three lovely websites below that you can use to help with the research for your projects. I hope you find some interesting facts and enjoy the websites.
Don’t forget, be creative!
