Eric Carle Art

1st & 2nd class celebrated the work of Eric Carle by creating some artwork in the style which he became famous for. The class also looked at some of his more well known children’s books like ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?’.


1st & 2nd class have spent the last few weeks watching the seeds they planted grow into plants. Today, to kick off Biodiversity Week, they planted one plant into each of the raised beds in the school garden with the hope that each class will have a pumpkin of their own next October in time for Halloween.

Any visitors to the HDA carpark will be able to watch them grow over the next few months.


On Friday 1st & 2nd class learned about some of the Irish athletes that will be heading to Tokyo for the Olympic Games.

They then wrote a ‘Good Luck’ message on a postcard to one of those athletes and posted them in Herbertstown.
