We had lots of fun today baking cupcakes. Each of us had a special job to do. Michael read aloud the instructions. Lorchán organised the baking equipment and ingredients throughout. Siluan carefully cracked the eggs and measured the flour using a weighing scales. Seán and Thomas mixed all of the ingredients together. Lastly, Ciarán spooned the mixture into the individual cupcake cases. Together we put the cupcakes in the oven and eagerly monitored the time on the classroom countdown timer. Once cooled down, we ate one delicious cupcake each and brought another home. We were happy boys and are excited to bake again soon.
Fourth class have been invited to take part in a Children’s Art Competition as a part of the Festival of Russian Culture (11th – 18th February 2018). The competition is based on The Goldfish, a story by the famous Russian writer Alexander Pushkin.
The story helped to inspire the students in fourth class to design and create their artwork.
