Wetlands study at Raven Wood.

Posted on May 9th, 2017 in Mr. King by Mr. King

On Tuesday the 2nd of May Mr King’s class visited the Raven forest in Curracloe. We met our guide John and he brought us to the pond to do some dipping and learn about the various forms of plant and animal life in the area. We learned lots of new information about the different habitats and food chains. We finished with a picnic on the beach. It was a really interesting day and one we will remember!

On Wednesday we visited the Wexford Wildfowl reserve in Ardcavan. We spent the day being scientists and investigating the pond and bird life present in the area. We were accompanied by Mr King, Sheila and Alannah’s mum. We learned a lot from our instructor John and had fun learning about mini beasts and geese, to finish we did a scavenger hunt and a quiz. Mr King even dressed up as a duck!

Who needs Roald Dahl when you have Mr. King’s class?

Posted on May 20th, 2014 in Mr. King,Ms. Hughes by Mrs. Doran  Tagged

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to Mr. King’s class for creating story books for us.

They are super!

A few weeks ago we met with the 6th class girls and told them about our hobbies, likes, dislikes, our friends and family and they came up with a personalised story for each of us.

They also illustrated the books beautifully.

Have a look at them below..

Some of these girls could be real authors some day!
