As part of World Around Us topic of Polar Regions and Polar Animals we have been focusing on Polar Bears this week and have been looking at how they survive in the cold harsh weather conditions of the Arctic and Antarctica. As part of our learning this week we had to label the parts of a polar bear and so we decided to create our own 3D polar bears using polystyrene. It was a very enjoyable activity that was carried out over a few lessons and the final pieces were excellent - the most enjoyable part was cutting and experiencing working with polystyrene (except for the tidying and cleaning up😀).

We were very lucky to have Melissa Keenan (parent of four pupils in St. Colmcille’s) join us this morning and show us how to make beautiful decorative Autumn Wreaths. Melissa showed the pupils how easy to it is make something so beautiful using elements of nature that are all around us in leaves, twigs, pine cones, etc. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the session and we thank Melissa for giving up her time to join us.
