This Sunday we hold our annual Spring Walk. This is a lovely opportunity for everybody in the community of St Finian’s NS to come together and enjoy a walk and chat on a Sunday afternoon while raising much needed funds for the school.
If you would like to join the walk, please join as at the school on Sunday at 1.30pm to register.
Please support the school by sponsoring us on the walk, all children have sponsorship cards or you can contribute on the day. We are currently working to raise funds for a much needed tarmacking job in the yard, so any help you can offer will be most gratefully received.
Above all, though, we would like you to join us for a fun afternoon!
5th and 6th class groups were busy experimenting last week to find mini-beasts. All 4 groups had to make and set 2 “pitfall” traps outside in the school yard. In each pitfall was a piece of fruit and in the other was a piece of meat. The aim was to find out which pitfall attracted more creatures, herbivores and carnivores.
We left the pitfalls for two 2 days and returned to find the results. We learned that the pitfalls containing the meat attracted a lot more mini-beasts than the ones containing fruit. Therefore, our conclusion was that the majority of the mini-beasts in the school yard were “carnivores!”
