On Tuesday last we planted some Spring vegetables. Some were planted outside like cabbage, onions, and shallots and some inside in planter cups such as peas radish and lettuce. Many thanks to John O Connor who supplied the cabbage plants. Thanks to Tom Maguire for constructing new raised beds. We will be hoping for a good return for our effort. Everyone enjoys this yearly hands-on activity. It instils in us an appreciation of our environment.
Thanks to Caroline Cantillon who helped the children make some delicious pancakes. Everybody enjoyed them.

The children got to listen to a historian showing them a variety of artefacts from the Kerry County Museum. They were able to handle some of Tom Crean’s personal items that he brought on his expedition, some stone age implements, some bones and household items from the 18th and 19th century. They all brought in their own artifact to show the class.
Aistear THE HOME
The Junior class enjoyed more Aistear under the theme of “The Home”. They built a house from cardboard and arranged furniture around it. They washed and hung out clothes to dry and they ironed using a 19th century iron. They learned lots of new vocabulary about the home and had great fun. They collected collages of a house, naming all the different parts.
