January 2019
This month we walked from our school to Huntington Castle. We looked at some houses. We had checklists, and we ticked off houses that we saw. We fed the ducks at the end.

We visited Santa on the last day before the holidays. We told him what we wanted for Christmas. We had great fun. He gave us Cadbury selection boxes. In assembly, a student from our class and some of 6th class played Silent Night on the recorder. Another student showed his Credit Union art competition picture to Eugene from the Credit Union.

October 2018
This month we went to Huntington Castle for a Hallowe’en walk. The castle was decorated to look like a haunted mansion. We took a photo at the front and played on the castle grounds. All the teachers and pupils had excellent costumes. We were lucky the weather was nice for walking! We also filled shoeboxes for children in poor countries who don’t get presents at Christmas. Students from FCJ came in and told us all about the shoeboxes. Team Hope is the charity.

September 2018
This month we read a story on Twinkl called “Don’t Hog the Hedge”, a story about a hedgehog named Hattie who hibernates and makes new friends. We also went outside, and collected autumn leaves, and stuck them onto trees for art. We learned about different types of tree. We learnt about foxes, and read “Fantastic Mr. Fox” by Roald Dahl. We planted flowers in boxes. First, we got the flowers out of the pots, then we put them in the boxes, and added some compost. We planted ivy, violas, green and red berries, and ornamental cabbage. We learned all about shapes. We created 2D and 3D shapes out of spaghetti and marshmallows. We did maths acrostic poems. We learned about the history of Hallowe’en. We learnt 3 Hallowe’en poems. We wrote Hallowe’en sentences in our free writing copies using Hallowe’en nouns, verbs, and adjectives. We redecorated the classroom for Hallowe’en, and put Hallowe’en silhouettes in the window, bats, a cat, a witch on a broomstick, and a moon with a face. We learnt about Inis Oirr, part of the Aran Islands, a group of three islands off the coast of Galway. Mrs Warren likes to paint pictures of parts of Inis Oirr. Mrs Warren’s mum used to live on Inis Oirr.
