The Lord Mayor's Visit
The Lord Mayor asked us how old his gold necklace is and I got it right. It was 130 years old! He gave us flags and crayons to colour them in with. The Lord Mayor's name is Councillor Tony Fitzgerald.

Today we went to Alec's house to visit his hens. We saw where the hens live, we learned about what they like to eat and we even got to feed them! What a great trip!!

Their own personal login also gives them access to practice their skills at home too.

Meg, Abi and Ciara from the Middle Room wrote some beautiful poetry as a group. Fish Fish swimming in the sea, What a wonderful sight! They are swimming in the river, And it's lovely and bright! When the tide goes out they swim away, And when it comes in it's time to play! The fishes colours are pink, purple and blue, And the sun comes shining through! The fishes bubbles are like a hot tub, Blub, blub, blub! The Clock Tick Tock goes the clock When will it ever stop. It ticks
