We were so excited to travel by Luas to the Natural History Museum last Wednesday, to go on their Teddy Bear Tour. On our tour we learned all about the differences between teddies, animals and stuffed animals!
- We found out about lots of different animals and where they live in the world
- We learned about what parts of a stuffed animal are real and what parts are fake
- We were each given a teddy bear and we compared these teddy bears to a real bear and all the other animals on display
- Geri our tour guide also treated us to all the secret stories behind the animals on display at the Museum
After we finished our wonderful tour, we enjoyed a picnic and some playground fun in the beautiful, sunny surroundings of Merrion Square Park.
We are already excited to return to the Natural History Museum – what a fantastic (and free) way to spend a day full of learning!
We had a wonderful time dressing up in our green, white and gold to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and Seachtain na Gaeilge here in CMIS last Friday.
All the parents enjoyed watching us parade around the yard and they were even treated to a viewing of our Irish dancing that we had been taught by Ms. Geelahan.
After our parade it was time to go to the hall for our whole school performance of the Kerry Polka and we finished up with a Ceíli Mór – after so much fun & activity we were happy to have a long weekend to rest up and recover!!!
Well done to everyone; teachers, students & parents, for all the efforts they put into making St. Patrick’s Day 2018 one to remember in our school.
Go raibh míle maith agaibh agus tá súil agam go raibh Lá Fhéile Pádraig Shona Daoibh go léir!!
