What a September we have had!! We have all settled back into the school routine well and have welcomed our new students with open arms. We have been so busy in the Small Building. We have been learning our numbers and enjoying our reading everyday. We have great fun writing and we have listened to some great stories.We have been doing loads of arts and crafts and made some of the wonderful creatures we saw when we did our ‘Minibeast Hunt’. We have gotten outdoors loads and we even took a walk to the park with Ms Fetton’s Class. It was tree week and we wanted to check out what was happening with the trees this autumn. We noticed the leaves changing colour and we found acorns and conkers on the ground. We also got to spend some time in the playground which was great fun. We have really enjoyed going to the library for some quiet reading and we all love to pick a new book each week. We have been learning about our families in Irish and even wrote a little about them by ourselves. We have been learning new songs and poems and we really enjoy dancing in the class everyday to keep fit and healthy. So far school has been a blast and we cannot wait to see what October will bring.

October and November…
We have had two very busy months in Room 4 in the Small Building. First Class have been working so hard and having lots of fun as well.
For P.E. we have been playing lots of different games using balls and beanbags. We are getting really good at throwing and catching. Some girls made it to 100 throws and catches without dropping the ball.
We have been spending plenty of time with our heads in books. We all LOVE to read and really enjoy a trip to the library or our own classroom reading garden.
We have done lots of writing over the last few weeks. We have been writing all about winter and about hibernation. We loved learning about hedgehogs. We all really love animals on our class. We were lucky enough to have a visit Maxi Zoo. A lovely bunny called Delilah came to see us. We all had the chance to pet her soft fur.
We have been learning lots of new vocabulary in our Gaeilge lessons and we are flying through our new numbers in Maths.
We were so lucky to do drumming this term. It was so much fun. We learned lots about beat and rhythm as well as learning about traditions in different places around the world.  For Art, we have been mixing colours, cutting and sticking and always using our imaginations.
We had two special treats this month in the Parents’ Room. We got to have ‘Snuggle Time’ with our families and some delicious hot chocolate and cookies.The children also got to bake chocolate corn flake buns because they had been such hard workers.
