Our theme this month is “Food” and we certainly love our food!!! We are hoping to try as many healthy foods as we can fit in over the month. So far we’ve made a fruit salad with honeydew and cantaloupe melon, pineapple, watermelon, apple, strawberries, blueberries, grapes and raspberries. We tried some of these for the first time. They were very tasty. We listened to the Wiggles Song “Fruit Salad”. Another healthy treat we made was popcorn. It was easy to make and the popping sounds the corn made were very funny.
On Wednesday 13th November we went on a trip to Tesco to buy ingredients for our cookery lesson. We read our shopping list and looked for chicken breasts, breadcrumbs, eggs, pasta and milk. When we returned back to school we made chicken goujons using 3 easy steps.
Our fish are back from their holidays in Jack James house. The had a great week and were cared for by the whole family!
Here in the Senior Speech and Language Class we celebrated National Pet week. We discussed the pets we have at home and even thought of some imaginary ones!! We went on a trip to Pet Mania where we met Bob, the bearded dragon, some friendly hamsters and rabbits and lots of colourful fish.
The lovely staff of PetMania sponsored our school and gave us some bird feeders and food to feed the small birds around our school as winter sets in. We put them in the trees and waited to see what types of birds would come for a nibble. We saw a robin and starling and a few pesky crows!
We have a busy year planned! Our class has enjoyed making smoothies and learning about healthy options. We also enjoyed a tour of the Waterford Walls where we bumped into some Gardaí who took some time out to tell us about their jobs. Joe Widger also welcomed us into his Butchers.
This month we went on a nature walk to see if we could find some blackberry bushes and we weren’t disappointed. We were able to pick our own blackberry’s and when we returned to school we made some yummy blackberry muffins. They were delicious.
We have just finished what was a fantastic term of Irish dancing with Muriel. All of the boys thoroughly enjoyed themselves and have improved so much at their 1,2,3s. We are sure to see some of these smart movers in River Dance soon!
