Planting Onions

Since our theme was Food in November. We all went out to the garden to plant our very own onions. Teacher handed us our own bulb that we had to plant in the soil. John Kelly, our caretaker,  was very kind and helped dig each patch of soil for us to put our onion in to. We then learned that the onions need water, soil and sunshine to grow. We hope to come back out to the garden in May or June to bring our very own onions home to our Mammies and Daddies. 

Here are some pictures of us planting our onions :)

November in Room 2

Our theme for the month of November was Food. We learned all about the different types of food we have in our world and learned about healthy and unhealthy food. As part of our theme teacher decided to bring in loads of fruit for us to try, we tried pineapples, grapes, berries, apples, oranges and strawberries! We used words like juicy, sour and sweet to describe the food we were eating! We really loved this day as we got to try fruit we have never tried before. Teacher is also very impressed because some of us are starting to bring in loads of fruit as part of our lunches each day. Here are some pictures of us trying some fruit in Room 2.

As part of our Aistear this month we went to visit the Cafe in the leisure centre in preparation for setting up our own Cafe in Room 2's role play area. We each had to bring in 2 euro and we got to order a drink and snack each at the counter. We learned to say please and thank you to the lady working in the cafe. We had great fun in the cafe and are looking forward to returning again.

Here are some pictures of us working away in our very own Cafe in Room 2
