On Friday March 30th, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class held their annual cake sale and coffee morning. This year the funds raised are going to the Bishop’s Appeal and our school tour.  A huge thank you to everyone who baked all the delicious goods! We also had a competition to guess how many eggs were in a basket. Thank you to Jackie for organising this. We raised a grand total of €639.79!

The children in 2nd and 3rd Class designed their own Easter Eggs and we displayed them on the classroom wall!  We also made our own mini chocolate eggs using moulds…As you can probably guess, this was a fun activity and everyone wanted to lick the spoon afterwards!

We then put the finished eggs into handmade chick/rabbit baskets, along with a few other treats…

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter from 2nd and 3rd Class!

Easter Art in the Infant Classroom

Date posted: 22nd April 2011 | Category Blog, Easter, Junior Classroom, Visual Arts |

During April,  the Infant Classroom learned about the artist, Vincent Van Gogh and his painting, “Sunflowers”. As an art appreciation lesson, the children all made their own  picture of “Sunflowers” using oil pastels. They did fantastic artwork and really showed off their artistic talents!!

Designing their own Easter Bags for the Easter Fairy Cakes was another art activity for the children

The children also designed their own egg character using polystyrene eggs!

 Happy Easter Everybody!

The children had to search, here,

there

and everywhere! All the children worked so well together and thankfully all the eggs were collected! The team who collected the most eggs were….
