We talked about people in our life and people around the world that are resilient. Here are just a little selection of resilient people who inspire us.....
We have been learning about the provinces of Ireland. We had to design a brochure filled with information on a county. We set up a tourist office and read each other's brochures. Then we had a class vote to find out which county we would like to visit most!! Offaly was the winner! Where would you like to visit?
We were set an exciting challenge for our Art Project....We had to transform a pumpkin so that it looks like something else! Look at these fabulous creations!!!
