We took part in Safer Internet Day on Wednesday 7th February.
We love using the internet. We use it for lots of reasons. We use it for entertainment, for socialising and for learning.
We learned how to stay safe when we are using the internet. The rules are SMART.
We are taking part in the Garden Birds Survey this year. We made bird identifiers to help us name the birds.
We found the survey here.
We found the Garden Birds Dial here.
This page will help you to identify garden birds.
We had a visit on Friday from Eimer. She is a marine biologist. She works with sharks and seahorses. We learned a lot about sharks and we got the chance to handle some artifacts. Click on the link to see some pictures.
Last Friday we had our first mystery Skype with a school in Japan.
The found us before we found them! We had lots of fun and they answered lots of questions for us about Japan. Their school in in Akita in the North of Japan.
Last week in school we noticed a little Hedgehog wandering around near our classroom. We became concerned because hedgehogs only come out at night as they are nocturnal creatures. We did some research online and found that they might come out during the day because they are sick, looking for somwhere to hibernate or looking for their mother and family.
On Friday afternoon, Ms Ferguson with the help of her class and Ms Hegarty got the Hedgehog into a box (ventilated box) and brought “Harry the Hedgehog” to Shenick Veterinary Clinic in Skerries where he was looked after by Sonya the Vet and her team. Sonya looked after Harry over the weekend, she ran tests, xrayed him and fed him lots.
This morning Sonya the Vet called Ms Ferguson to say he needed to gain more weight before hibernating so Harry will be staying with Yvonne in the Hedgehog Rescue Centre Dublin.
Keep an eye for more Harry the Hedgehog news!
We created our own personal Timelines in History this week. You can see more of them by clicking on the link.
Mia, very kindly brought in an egg that her pet bird had laid. Her bird is a conure and its egg is very tiny! It was safely wrapped in a little box and we were very careful when we were looking at it.
We had never heard of a conure bird, so we looked them up on the internet. They look like the birds in this picture.
