We were learning about the Amazon rainforrest and carried out project work on various animals who live in the Amazon Rainforrest.

October and November were busy months we celebrated science week as well as maths week. We worked on many problems and puzzles as well as STEM activities with other classes. We finished our coding classes which we thoroughly enjoyed - I think we have some future scientists and engineers in the class. We started gymnastics with Patsy as well as football with Mike . Some girls in our class took part in a public speaking workshop organised by IRD Duhallow  and they presented their speeches for the class- we were well impressed ! well done girls .
