Today is World Book Day. We all dressed up as characters from our favourite books. We really enjoyed acting out our new personas for the day.

Today in school we made pizzas. Yum!First we spread tomato sauce on the base.
Then we used sweet corn, tomatoes, ham and pineapple for the toppings. Then we put cheese on top.
Then we heated them in the oven until the cheese melted. Some people got very creative and made pizza people. They were delicious.
Today we read a book about two children who went on an adventure in their garden. They found lots of insects hiding in the garden. We used our magnifying glasses to help the children find all the insects. As you can see from the pictures, we took our job very seriously and managed to find all the insects. Well done everyone!
The Senior Language Class made beautiful Valentine’s cards for their families. Just look at their works of art. Happy Valentines Day everyone!
We had a very unusual visitor to Greenmount over the past few weeks. A beautiful red fox came to visit us with his friend. We watched them play in the garden. Then we wrote reports on the fox. We wrote about what the fox eats and what he can do. Then we drew fantastic pictures of the fox.
Colette, the Lollipop Lady, came to visit the Language Classes. She told us all about how to cross the road safely. She reminded us to wear our high-vis jackets so that the cars will be able to see us. We had great fun pretending to be cars and stopping when Colette put out her sign. Then our friends were able to cross the road. Thank you Colette for being so nice to us and thanks especially for the yummy lollipops.
Lily celebrated her 6th birthday in school with all her friends. She brought in party bags for us and a yummy chocolate cake. Happy birthday Lily!
Here are some examples of our recount writing. We were recounting Emma’s news. She went to Yvonne’s party at the weekend. They went to the pool. There are four sections to our recount. When did the story happen? Who was in the story? What did they do? Where did the story happen? Teacher was very proud of our lovely writing.
We read a story called ‘Dear Zoo’. It is all about a little boy who wrote to the zoo asking for a pet. They sent him some very interesting animals. We decided that we would also write to the zoo for a pet. Here are our letters:
Happy birthday Darragh! Darragh was 6 yesterday. We had so much fun celebrating his birthday. Darragh’s mum sent in party bags and a chocolate cake. Yum! Then we danced and danced to party music. We love parties!
