Ceilí Mór

We have been practising all week for a big ceilí in the yard. The rain stayed away long enough for us to get out and perform our dance. We had so much fun. Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone.

Pancake Tuesday

Today is Pancake Tuesday so Jennifer helped us to make yummy pancakes. Some of us had lemon and sugar on our pancakes and some of us had plain. They were delicious. We even got to flip a pancake. How exciting!! Thank you Jennifer and Ber.

Senior Infants

Our senior infants have been working so hard on writing independently. Here they are writing notes to their friends. How cute!

Space

We have been learning all about space and the sky. We know that the sun comes out during the day and that the moon comes out at night. But what’s beyond the sky? We learned that there are planets and stars in space. We read a story about astronauts who went to see Saturn in their rocket. Saturn is the planet with rings around it. The astronauts had to wear special suits to go into space. We loved pretending to be aliens.

Our Christmas Musical

How fantastic do we look on the stage in our costumes. We performed the musical ‘The Snowman’. We hope you all enjoyed it. We certainly did. Merry Christmas everyone.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Santa came to visit us here in Greenmount. The excitement!! We sang him our favourite Christmas songs and then he gave us presents. Thank you Santa. Ho! Ho! Ho!

Christmas Crackers

Happy Christmas!! We had so much fun today pulling Christmas crackers. We won party hats and lots of little prizes. We are really looking forward to Christmas.

Shopaholics

We all went shopping this morning. Thank you to Ms. Ahern’s class for setting up the shop for us. We were busy with our shopping bags, reading price tags and choosing items to buy.

Life Skills

We were very busy in the kitchen this morning. Over the past few weeks we have been practising washing our hands and faces, brushing our teeth, spreading butter on toast and pouring juice. We are getting so good at it that today we did all our jobs together. Look how fantastic we are.
