In February we learned about animals. We read ‘Giraffes Can’t Dance’ and ‘Big Panda and Little Panda’. We built a zoo and a farm with lots of animals and we played with yellow ducks in our water tray. We visited Brown’s Road library this month and we made bookmarks. We completed our gymnastics lessons with Waterford Gymnastics club and we were delighted to be presented with certificates from our coaches.

In January we learned about people who help us. We read stories like ‘Charlie the Firefighter’ and ‘Doctor Fen at Number Ten’. We played and pretended to be doctors and hairdressers. We built places of work with blocks and Lego. We also celebrated Alfie and Elijah’s birthdays. We did some drawing this month for art. We drew fireworks for the new year and we drew one of our favourite TV characters – Pikachu! 


In December we learned about winter and Christmas. We celebrated Fionn’s birthday with a little party. We made lots of nice art and we decorated Christmas cookies. We were very lucky to get a visit from Mrs. Class and Elfie. They brought lots of lovely books with them from the North Pole for our library.


In November we learned about food. We read ‘Handa’s Surprise’ and ‘The Supermarket Slip Up’. We learned ‘Little Jack Horner’ and ‘Hot Cross Buns’. We painted a fruit bowl and made gingerbread houses. We played with and learned the names of 2D shapes. We did some science experiments for science week and Oisín won a prize in the colouring competition. Well done Oisín!


In October we learned about autumn and Halloween. We read ‘Room on the Broom’ and sang ‘5 Little Pumpkins’. We made autumn leaf prints and rubbings. We decorated our door with mummies for Halloween. We painted black cats and pumpkins. Congratulations to Penelope who received a medal and certificate for her participation in the Summer Stars reading programme. Well done Penelope!


We have been very busy in the Junior Language class this September. We have been getting to know our teacher Ms. Kavanagh. We read stories like ‘Pete the Cat’ and ‘The Wheels on the Bus’. We played with sand and water. We sang ‘Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes’ and we made art with our names. We look forward to having plenty of fun this year.
