On Thursday 19th June First Class had a special Butterfly Day. We sang songs, read poems that we had written and explained what we had learned about butterflies. We also made a class display about the life cycle of a butterfly. We tried to wear butterfly themed clothes too!
For the last few weeks Junior Infants and First class have been watching our caterpillars grow and change into butterflies in the classroom. This was part of a project supported by Debra Ireland which helps people affected by E.B. This is a skin condition when people’s skin is as thin and delicate as a butterfly’s wings. We enjoyed watching the butterflies and wanted to help the charity on Butterfly Day.
Thank you to all who came to support our day and especially to the wonderful Mum who organised the arrival of the caterpillars in school!
