The Lifecycle of the Butterfly



2nd class learned all about the lifecycle of the butterfly. We learned how a butterfly lays eggs on a leaf they grow and turn into a caterpillar. Next the caterpillar eats a lot and forms a cocoon. This is called a chyrsalis or a pupa. When it comes out of this stage it is a beautiful butterfly. We all love butterflies.

Later on we did some art work! Our butterflies were lovely and colourful!

6th Debating Team 2016

This was the first year Sallins NS had a debating team. There were boys and girls on the team and we spent hours researching, writing speeches and practicing our speeches.  Ms McKenna helped us and guided us. We would like to thank her for all her help.

All of us were from 6th class and we thought we did a pretty good job representing our school this year in some friendly debates with local schools and in the debating competition. We would all agree that it was a great experience for us all and we enjoyed it.

The team received their certificates last week in recognition of all of their hard work . We all think that they were fantastic!! Well done!IMG_9502
