Fáilte go dtí Meán Fómhair: A Flying Start to Fourth!
It is only the end of our first month and we have already been up to so much! Not only have we all become great friends (me included!!) but we have been catching up on all of the fun things we got up to over the summer. After such an uncertain last year, it has been wonderful to be surrounded by friends once again, playing and learning as all should be. We have rediscovered our own beauty with self-portraits, hung up in the corridor for all of the world to see! We’ve made the most of our lovely Finsbury park with games and stations during PE. We have explored Irish myths and legends with The Children of Lir and the magical tale of those poor children who were turned into swans. And that’s only to start!!
We had the great privilege of a Nature Writing Workshop with Shane Casey, hosted by Unesco in which we wrote nature stories about badgers, hedgehogs, ducks and hares, oh my! Our imaginations really spilled onto the page for that one but still, we long for when an author can really and truly come in to visit!
We each chose our own passion project, whatever we liked! Some chose holidays and summer memories, some decided that animals were their favourite thing, others created objects and scenes of wonder for us to marvel at! We heard about everything from the history of fashion to football. We even had a volcanic eruption to enjoy! We worked so hard on these projects at home and being able to share them with our classmates made the dedication and work all the more sweet!
Another excellent month is sure to come, with plenty of fun, learning and new discoveries along the way!
