Christmas

Christmas is a busy time at the school. We send the Christmas shoeboxes in November, we are then busy practising for our Christmas play and Carol Service, sometimes we go carol singing or have a Christmas fair. We also have a Christmas party and Santa comes and if we are good, we each get a goody bag.

Happy Christmas!

We have had quite a busy few weeks in the run up to the Christmas holidays!  In 1st, 2nd and 3rd class, the children have been working hard in all subject areas.  In Art, we painted Christmas pictures including Santa, Reindeer, Trees and lots more.  Have a look at our work…

In Gaeilge, the theme for the past few weeks has been “Ócáidí Speisialta” or “Special Occasions” including “An Nollag” or “Christmas”.  The children have learned to create lots of phrases based on the vocabulary learned.

In Religion, we listened to the Christmas Story and depicted this in collage form….

We also made biscuit cake for all the mums and dads in our class and wrapped the edible treats in cellophane with bows on top.  Here are pictures of the children with the biscuit cakes, ready to be chilled…

In Art, we also made Christmas cards and decorated our own 3d Christmas trees…

Finally, we had an in-class art competition.  The standard of work was extremely high and 4 lucky pupils received a small selection box for their wonderful work.

Well done boys and girls!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all, from the boys and girls in 1st, 2nd and 3rd class!

In maths 4th class have been learning about lines of symmetry and drew these symmetrical Christmas pictures.

 

Last Thursday we went to see the film Rise of the Guardians as a Christmas treat! In English we wrote our own reviews of the film.

In Assembly we learned all about Advent. Here is our Advent Calendar. Each day a child picks a treat from it.

Christmas Time

Date posted: 22nd December 2011 | Category Blog, Christmas, English, Irish, Senior Classroom, Visual Arts |

It has been a very busy few weeks preparing for Christmas in Wandesforde School. 4th, 5th and 6th class have been busy doing lots of Christmas activities in different subjects. In art we made wreaths from tissue paper, then made bells and stuck on bows.

In English we read the story The Little Match Girl and then painted scenes of the Christmas things she saw through the window each time she lit a match.

 

In English we also read the poem The Night Before Christmas and answered questions on it. Then we sketched our favourite images from the poem.

In Religious Education we made a Jesse Tree for Advent. The tree is decorated with symbols from the bible to remind us of the stories of the Old Testament before the birth of Jesus. Each star on the tree represents a pupil in our class.

We read information about the origins of Advent and wrote about it. The work was displayed around our Advent Calendar. Each day a pupil had a chance to take a treat from the calendar.

In Gaeilge we drew Nativity scenes and 5th and 6th class wrote about their favourite Christmas things.

 

 

Merry Christmas to everyone, enjoy the holidays!
