May in 5th class

We all had a lovely May Bank Holiday weekend .Before the Bank Holiday our larva had changed to catepillars and formed a chrysalis.


They seemed so still for a few weeks that we thought they were dead.At the end of May we found 4 beautiful butterflies had hatched out of the chrysalis.

We were delighted.We showed them to all the classes in the school and presented them at assembly one morning.We made nectar from water and sugar and fed them old bananas and oranges.

Then it was time to release them in Athenry park.It took some time for them to fly off.They did not want to leave our hands when we took them out of the butterfly net but with a little encouragement , after a while they flew away.We were so proud to see our fabulous butterflies that we cared for and raised fly off across the park.How proud were we.We all felt like mammies letting our young children go.

We learned all about 3-D shapes in maths and had to make lots of different shapes from k’nex and study their properties.

We read about the various ways people long ago used to beautify themselves in our English Reading Book.How they used kitchen products and basic ingredients.We set up our own Beauty Salon in class and everyone made their own beauty products using everyday ingredients found at home.We had great fun.We had everything in our salon from face masks,hair dye ,lip balm ,perfume, face and hand scrubs and more.Got a bit messy but was worth it.


Here is Michelle with with a yoghurt mask.
