December has been an eventful month for 4th, 5th & 6th Class. In Art we created colourful winter trees and highlighted them in gold and silver. We also shaded in our Christmas stars using different colour paints.
The preparation for Christmas is known as Advent and in Religious Education we learned all about this important time of year. We also made our own Advent Wreath and each pupil put some greenery in it. To mark Advent we also have an Advent Calendar with each pupil getting a treat from it during December.
An Nollaig was our theme in Gaeilge and we made our own Cartaí Nollaig and wrote poems ‘as Gaeilge’ based on the topic An Nollaig.
In English 4th Class read all about spiders and wrote up reports about them.
They also read The Apple Tree and illustrated all the things which got stuck to the tree.
5th and 6th Class read a story called ‘Christmas’ and completed character investigation sheets about the main character Jimeen in the story.
We performed our play ‘Hosanna Rock’ in St. Mary’s on the 21st. Well done to all the boys and girls on a great performance. Finally a special visitor came to see us on Monday …… Santa!! We all enjoyed his visit and gifts! 🙂
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all in the Senior Room! See you in 2016!!
