Hi everyone!

What do you call a funny chicken? A comedi-hen!

Another great joke from Rang 2 to kick off our newsletter this week.

We have been learning about birds and their fascinating behaviour this week.

We also read a book by Brian Wildsmith about collective nouns for birds. My favourite was "a charm of goldfinches" and "a gift of robins". 

We made lovely exotic birds inspired by his illustrations also. 

In Forest School we made beautiful decorations using twigs and wool called "God's Eyes" or "Ojo de Dios" in Spanish. The central eye is made by a father when the child is born and a new colour is added every year until that child is five years old. 

We are learning about Eadaí in Irish and will be dressing up for "Seachtain na Gaeilge" when it begins next week.

Speaking of Gaeilge, we have teamed up with Rang 5 for some paired reading. It is so lovely to be involved in a project with another class after not being able to do so for a long time.

See you all next week!
