We are a very busy school! Each year as a treat, we all go to the cinema at Christmas. This is kindly paid for by the Board of Management and we have a fantastic day. Sometimes we hold a Carol Service or Christmas Play in St. Mary’s Church just before the Christmas holidays and then come back to the school for a party. All the parents are invited back for tea/coffee and to see our Christmas art and craft.

Team Hope Shoebox Appeal

Date posted: 16th November 2011 | Category Blog, Christmas, Fundraising Activities |

The children of Wandesforde National School, Castlecomer, have been busy over the past few weeks filling lots and lots of shoeboxes for children in poverty-stricken countries worldwide as part of Team Hope’s Christmas Shoebox Appeal.  A total of 42 shoeboxes were collected and filled with various treats, toys, gloves, hats, scarves, colouring books, pencils and crayons.  A huge thank you to all the children who brought in a shoebox and to the Mums and Dads who helped pack them.  The shoeboxes are now on the long journey to Africa and Eastern Europe where they will, hopefully, bring a smile to the boys and girls who receive them.

Hallowe’en Fun in 2nd & 3rd Class

Date posted: 28th October 2011 | Category Blog, Class Work, Hallowe'en, Middle Classroom, Visual Arts |

We really enjoyed doing lots of art and craft for Hallowe’en in our classroom.  We made some masks using feathers, glittery paper and Hallowe’en shapes.  Can you guess who’s hiding behind them?  We also made some chocolate apples covered in hundreds and thousands.  It was great fun!

The finished product…

We also made Frankensteins with moving arms and legs.

Happy Hallowe’en everybody!

It has been a busy few weeks in the senior classroom. We have been doing lots of work on the topic of Hallowe’en.

In English we wrote essays on Magical Spells and Scary Nights.

In art we made sparkling fireworks from kitchen rolls and splatter painted a colourful background.

In Gaeilge we read a story about Oíche Shamhna and drew these spooky pictures.

Happy Hallowe’en to all, enjoy the break!
