The boys and girls are settling in nicely to Room 5. They are now in First Class and we have been doing some lovely getting to know you activities.
The sun was shinning down for our lovely Sports day. All the children had so much fun. We started off with lots of different races, including the sack race and potatoe & spoon race! It was lovely to have such a good turn out of parents and grandparents there too , cheering on all the children.
After break we had more outdoor activities and we also had a teddy bears picnic. To top off the day we got a lovely surprise visit with an Ice-Cream delivery for everyone! Well done to all involved and the children were delighted going home with their medals from a great day of sport.
We had the best fun on our very first school tour. We went to St.Anne's Pet farm where we seen lovely animals that were all rescued. We heard lots of nice stories about the animals and even got to pet some of them. We had a picnic in the park and then had the best fun in the playground. The children really enjoyed themselves and we were very lucky the sun came out to play too! The bus trip was nice and noisey with lots of exciting giggles.
Lá fhéile Pádraig sona dhaoibh! Everyone looked great today kitted out in their St.Patrick's day gear. The children performed "Oro se de bheitha bhaile" in the hall today for the other classes. They did a brilliant job! Thankfully this year we get to celebrate St.Patrick's day with a little bit of normality!
Today we had an interesting math's lesson. We used indivdual ipods as part of our maths lesson. The children had to come up with 2 numbers that equal a certain number. They had to select the correct sum in order to complete the grid. They then recorded their sum in their copies. They really enjoyed working independently and with the use of technology.
We had lots of fun on world book day. We brought in our favourite books to present to the class. The children described and recommended various books to their friends. We did a "teacher swap" so another teacher read a story to the children. We also enjoyed the fun of " Drop Everything And Read". The children also designed their own book cover which was very interesting. They had lots of great ideas.
We enjoyed yummy pancakes for Pancake Tuesday! We had great fun discussing how to make them, what toppings to use and how many we can eat!!!!
We are sorry we cannot invite our lovely grandparents into the school for their special day. So instead we have recorded a little song and a poem for you. We hope you enjoy it! We prayed for all our special grandparents today in class and we also prayed for those that are shinning down from Heaven.
The boys and girls are having great fun learning all about the Dentist this month in Aistear. They have being playing in the dentist surgery and taking on the role of the dentist, the dental nurse, the patient and the receptionist. They have also been practicing brushing their teeth twice a day at home to keep them nice and clean.
