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.

December Delights Us!!

The Junior Classroom have been getting ready for Christmas in lots of different ways this December!!

We recycled some old Christmas Cards to make some decorations for our Christmas Tree.

We also designed our own 3D Christmas Tree Decorations which we hung around our tree!

In Music, we made our own maracas out of a light bulb and toilet roll holder using the layering method of Papier Maché!

 The children also participated in an In-Class Colouring Competition. Well done to Gráinne and Conall who won Best Boy and Best Girl Entry!

We also made our own reindeer out of more toilet roll holders!! Aren’t they very cute and they even have their own bell!

In Science, the children have been learning about all the materials around us. Take a look at the Material Boys and Girls they designed!

 The children really enjoyed learning Irish Christmas Vocabulary through games this month. They made their own “Crainn Nollag” too!

In English, the children have learned many new letters. We made our own “rockets” to support work on the letter “Rr” this month.

Finally, we baked some Toffee Mallow Krispies together. Everybody was given a job to do and we then brought our treats home in our own Handmade Christmas Cone.

 

 

 

 

Happy Christmas Everyone and we’ll see you all in 2013!

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.
