This school term 5th and 6th have been finishing off the garden and path. We have entered the SuperValu save the bees competition to win €50,000. We have done some Indigenous Australian Art and we have started learning drumming with Eddie which is fun. We do drum on Thursdays and guitar on Wednesdays. We are learning about Australia in Geography. For English we have new literature reading groups. Each group pick their own books and read it every week and answer questions. We do lots of quizzes to help us revise for our end of the year tests. We have finally taken down the screens and are going to move desks which is exciting. We are planning on making an eco-friendly playground using only tyres. We are learning a new song on guitar for our graduation. We have ordered our 6th class jumpers. We are doing a bake sale to raise money for our school on the 2nd of June.
