Junior room having a great day gardening.
Spring has come to Hollymount NS and we are doing lots of planting. Mrs. Golden gave each child a tree to plant at home. The Junior Room are participating in Innocent drinks Sow and Grow. We have planted cress, basil and peas. We are watching our plants grow every day. We are writing up our progess in an online blog. Check out how they are doing on www.innocentdrinkssowandgrow.ie
We investigated the effect of heat on chocolate-it melts! With the melted chocolate we made chocolate apples. We decorated our apples with butterfly sprinkles and magic fairy dust. They were delicious!
We learned all about trees on National Tree day. We took leaf rubbings from some of all the lovely leaves we have collected for our Nature table.
The Junior Room are starting to learn all about sounds. This week we were learning about ‘ccc castanets’. Tíarna brought in her flamence dress and castanets that she got on her holidays in Spain. Kaylee also brought in her castanets. Check out this video of us doing our song!
