Daffodil Planting

Third classes planted daffodils in September. This is an annual event as each year all our new entrants to St. Molaga’s plant a spring bulb. As a result, each springtime our school grounds are alive with colour. This year our daffodil bulbs were generously sponsored by Woodies in Airside.  A big thank you to the manager in Woodies, Airside for your generous donation.img_1016

Animal Projects

As we were looking at animals in our science books, we decided to pick our favourite animal and learn some more about them.  We all stood at the top of the class and presented our research!

A few interesting facts taken from these projects:

A recount and a procedure

Planting Daffodils and Tulips

Ms Memery’s and Ms Reilly’s class planted daffodil and tulip bulbs. We planted the bulbs near the Astro pitch beside the gate. We plant bulbs in autumn.

Michael dug deep holes for us. We each put a bulb in the holes. We filled the holes with compost and patted them with the big shovel. We hope they grow big and strong. We will see them in spring.

Spring Bulbs

Yesterday, 24th September, pupils and parents of our new entrants to third classes in St. Molaga’s planted spring bulbs. This is an annual event and ensures that each spring our school grounds are bursting with the colours of spring.

We were delighted that so many parents came to participate in the event. We look forward to seeing the flowers next February and March.IMG_0580 IMG_0540 IMG_0544 IMG_0546 IMG_0547 IMG_0549 IMG_0552 IMG_0554 IMG_0557 IMG_0558 IMG_0568 IMG_0574

Innocent Smoothie Sow and Grow

Our class is taking part in the Sow and Grow project. All our materials arrived before our Easter Holidays.  We planted our cress seeds yesterday. We put them on a windowsill hopefully they will get lots of sunlight. Today we are going to fill in our grow diaries.  Next week we will plant courgette seeds and then pumpkin seeds. We can’t wait to plant the pumpkin seeds. We also have tomato plants growing in our classroom. SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES
