Fruit Platter

How lucky are we.... fruit platter every day for breakfast!

The Best School Tour....Ever!

Yesterday we visited Florence Court House in Co Fermanagh. Not for us the life of a Lord or Lady.... we were to be scullery maids for the day! After putting on our costumes it was down to the basement where we had to work in the kitchen, organise the laundry and clean the servants dining room. Afterwards we got to see what school was like long ago...Thank goodness our teacher is much nicer! We visited the magnificent walled gardens and had lots of fun in the playground.

We were tired but happy on the journey home. Definitely the best school tour....ever!

How can we keep teacher's tea hot?

Mrs Clarke came to us with a problem. Her tea was always cold! So we devised an experiment to find out which material best insulates her mug. Most of us thought that cotton wool would work the best but we were surprised to find that putting a lid on the mug was actually the best insulator! 
Now Mrs Clarke can enjoy a nice hot mug of tea after yard duty.

As part of our history curriculum we went on a 
walking history tour of Cavan. 
We Identified key landmarks and features in our town 
and compared how they look now with how they looked in the past.
We examined the wonderful photo exhibition at the post office 
which clearly shows the continuity and change of our street scenes 
now and then. 
The old St Clare's school building

We thoroughly enjoyed this excursion and feel more part of our community now.

We really enjoyed learning a new musical instrument - The Tin Whistle.
Thanks to Padraig, Mrs Clarke and our parents for their patience - especially in the early days when we weren't very good!
