November 2017
We have spent a lot of time rehearsing our Christmas plays: 'Ralph the Reindeer', 'Whoopsy-A-Daisy Angel' and 'Elves on Strike'. There were lots of songs to learn and costumes to try on. We became familiar with being on stage and we were very excited about performing for our families. We planted daffodil and tulip bulbs. We enjoyed feeling the cool, soft compost. We took great care to put the bulbs in the right way up and cover them with a warm blanket of compost. We gave the bulbs water and put them in a safe place on the window sill. We said good bye and good luck to Mrs Sheppard in her new job. We made lots of pictures with leaves: we used crayons to make leaf rubbings and paint to make leaf prints. We all worked very hard on the posters for the Christmas trees. We want to say a very big thank you to a very generous family who gave us lots of costumes for our dress-up box. We have great fun being Batman, Mr Frog, Spiderman and many more. We love using the hoppers in the blue room, lots of fun and great for our co-ordination.

October 2017
This month we have enjoyed working together and working independently at many activities. We did take time out to relax reading a book in the library area. Some of us joined Mrs Sheppard's class making apple crumble, yummie! We celebrated a birthday with chocolate cake and candles. We eagerly awaited Halloween. We decorated our classroom with witches, ghosts, skeletons, cobwebs and spiders. We worked hard on designing faces for our pumpkins. We all helped prepare the pumpkins by scooping out the inside with a spoon. We were very happy with the finished pumpkins. We all dressed up on Friday the 27th, we looked great in our costumes. The whole school walked to Huntington Castle and enjoyed a scary walk through the interior, thank you Alexander and Claire. We hope you enjoy our photos.

September 2017
Welcome back to all our students, you all look very rested after your holiday. A big welcome to our two new Junior Infants, who have settled in so quickly. We availed of the lovely weather and spent some time exercising and playing outside. We visited the apple tree and picked some apples. We brought them back to the classroom and washed them. The apples tasted so fresh and delicious. We also found strawberries in the garden; they looked and smelled really nice. We washed them and enjoyed eating them. We were delighted to hear we all won a group prize along with Mrs Nolan's class in the Tullow Show. We also won individual prizes for our spectacular Art. We went along to the Tullow Community School to collect our plaques and medals. We have enjoyed lots of activities and work in the classroom: singing, listening to stories, drawing, painting, reading, number work, water play, dressing up and lots more. On Wednesdays we sing and dance with Anita from Music Generation. We hope you enjoy our photos.
