First Class have been very busy this month! In October we have been eating very healthy lunches. Every day we are trying to include a fruit and a vegetable in our lunch boxes. Everyone is making a brilliant effort. Lots of birds are coming to our class bird feeder. They are eating the nuts and seeds very quickly. We are busy keeping it topped up!
We have set up a little holy altar for Mary in the class. We light the candles and say a decade of the rosary every morning with our new rosary beads. October has flown by and we are looking forward to dressing up for Halloween. We hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable week off school!
Fifth Class are working very hard making Halloween Masks . We have learned how to do long division and are very good at it, we are also getting very good at looking up for new words in the dictionary and putting them into sentences. We are reading a very good book called ‘The Moon Bear’. We were trying to eat healthy food this October and we have we have succeeded. On Friday the 28th of October, we are doing a show in the class called Fifth Class has got talent. We also enjoyed taking part in our Sponsored Walk at the beginning of October!
Sixth Class attended the Garda Sports Day at The O’ Raghailligh’s football grounds in Drogheda two weeks ago. Vicky came 3rd in the 200 metres and Luke came 3rd in the boys penalty shootout. Everyone had a great day. Well done to everyone that took part!
Healthy Eating during the month of October
There was a focus on healthy in Scoil Bhríde during the month of October. All the classes made an extra effort to bring fruit, vegetables and healthy snacks to school. Some classes baked healthy recipes and made lovely healthy soups! Yum! Ms Moran held a Healthy Eating Poster Competition and the posters were displayed in the school hall. All children made an excellent effort. The winners of the poster competition received certificates and special prizes at assembly. Please see the School News Section of the website for the winners of the competition!
The children have been busy planting bulbs around the school. Everything on the school grounds is slowing down and going into hibernation. We will be installing the bird feeders again for the winter months.
We have conducted a nationality survey among our pupils as well as a global food survey. Some very interesting results came to light when considering air miles, carbon footprint and eating seasonal food. Furthermore, the issue of Fairtrade and how recycling both in Ireland and in other less developed countries will be the focus of many projects after the mid-term break.
