Thank you to Cian and his family for sharing his baking project. Cian loves to make tasty food for all his family and enjoys sharing his talents. Ms Demoitie and Cian are always busy at school and together they create some incredible treats for us all. Cian thought it would be nice to use the skills he has learned with Ms Demoitie at home and I think we can all agree, he is a wonderful baker. It takes lots of patience and plenty of organisation to bake tasty things to eat. Well done Cian for using your time at home so wisely. You are an inspiration to us all.
So many of our boys and girls have been in touch recently, sharing lots of wonderful activities from home. Ciara in Ms Concannon's class decorated a tree of hope. We can all benefit from a little bit of hopeful cheer and this beautiful tree certainly uplifts our spirits. Lennon in Ms Kennedy's class produced a wonderful project all about his local area. The boys and girls in Mr Busher's second class have been using lego to show us all their creative capabilities. Truly we are blessed to have so many brilliant boys and girls here in Huntstown. Máith sibh go léir.
We have been overwhelmed by the positive responses to our project ideas. Boys and girls, together with their families, have been using their time at home to explore the natural world. They have documented their discoveries and shared their stories with us here at school. Indeed, we were thrilled to learn that extended families from far away got involved. Some of Ms O'Connor's family in Donegal decided to share in our fun. They very kindly sent us these pictures with some information on the wildlife in their back garden. We love that they even included their wonderful cat, who has a most intriguing name. Perhaps some of our families in Huntstown might like to compare the birds found in Dublin 15 to those found in Donegal. We learn so much when we open our worlds to other people. We often find that we have lots in common with our friends, neighbours and families who might live in different counties. We can also learn about the things that make each place unique. In Huntstown there are lots of roads and streets named after pheasants, such as 'Pheasants Run'. Yet very few of our boys and girls have ever seen a pheasant up close like the one in the pictures above. What wildlife might be found in Huntstown that might surprise our friends in Donegal? Maybe someone might take a photograph and share it with us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Why not take some time to visit one of the museums or galleries below? You will be amazed at what you find there and it might help you to create an interesting project. We look forward to seeing what you can create.
