Junior Infants

Junior Infants are very excited this week as we have visitors coming to our room to talk about their work in the community. We would like to say a big thank you to Shane’s dad Paul who is talking to us about the role of the Postman.  Junior Infants are also very busy preparing for the Christmas Prayer Service. They are looking forward to seeing their families in the church on the day .

fruitFirst Class

We finished up the Food Dudes Programme earlier in November and we all loved trying new fruit and vegetables! We are still trying everyday to bring in some fruit and vegetables in our new lunch boxes. We started GAA training this month and it’s great fun. This week Sunny, our class teddy, went home with Abbie and he put up the star on her Christmas tree! We are having fun experimenting and learning about magnets this week in class. We have just put up bird feeders on our class windows so we are waiting to see if any birds come to eat the seeds and nuts. We’ll let you know next time if we spot any birds!

bakingThird Class

Next week, Monday 30th November, will be the last week of swimming for Third Class. Everyone enjoyed it very much and made great improvement in their swimming. Kayla went to Belgium for a Taekwando competition, she reached the quarter finals. Well done Kayla! Calum had a wonderful holiday in Hong Kong. He said it was great and he ate in lovely restaurants every night. Third Class will start baking again on the 1st of December. They are really looking forward to it!

mathsFourth Class

November has been a busy month for Fourth Class! In English we wrote our own poetry based on the poem “The Night Wind”. In Maths we have been working hard solving problems in division, decimals and money. We have been making costumes for different countries in Art in fabric and fibre. Keep an eye out on our website page for the photos!

Green Schools News

The Parents Committee have organised a Copper Run to help raise funds for the Outdoor Classroom. Please send in as much copper as you can to enable this very worthwhile resource for the school. A weather proof seating area, shrubs, trees, plants and flowers as well as construction materials are needed.

We have also been busy designing the artwork for the Green Schools notice board which represents the local community as well as the further reaching global nature of the Green Schools. We will post up the finished work on our website page. Please check it out when its done!

Regards, The Green School’s Committee

We all sat down in the hall and waited for the army to arrive. A few minutes later they arrived. The talked about the 1916 Rising and asked some questions about it. The head of the army read the Proclamation with my brother Fionn. Then we received the Irish flag and the Proclamation. We then sang the National Anthem. Some children played the National Anthem on the tin whistle too. It was a great day for our school. By Oisín, Fourth Class
