We had an amazing time learning all about the environment this month.
We learnt about the importance of recycling. We made anti-litter mascots using the packaging from our lunches. We also learnt that we have to use kind words when working as a team.
We feel very strongly about the lack of bins in Newtownmountkennedy so we have decided to write letters to the council so that more bins can be put in our town.
We had an informative zoom call with James Callery, the environmental awareness officer for Wicklow. Thumbs down to littering.
We made paper gift bags for our family and friends. As plastic bags never fully decompose, paper bags are a much better alternative. They are all so unique and personal.
We learnt about the lifecycle of a sunflower. After that we planted sunflower seeds. Ms Darcy gave us two seeds; one was planted in a pot and the other one in our garden. We have to fill out our sunflower booklet each week to show the progress of our sunflower.
We drew sunflowers taking inspiration from Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflower painting. They are so colourful!
We had so much fun using metre sticks to measure different objects in the classroom during our maths lesson. We are going to measure the height of our sunflower each week as it grows.
We did our community proud by picking up litter. We loved wearing our hi-vis jackets, gloves and using the litter grabbers.

Thinking of you all. I hope that you and your family are well. Stay safe.
