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!
Ho Ho Ho! We couldn’t believe our eyes when we walked into Santa’s grotto today! There, sitting in his rocking chair, was the big man himself. It was so magical. We asked him lots of questions about what we should leave out for him on Christmas Eve and what reindeer eat. We promised him that we had been very good and he told us that he had read all our letters. Then he reached into his big red sack and brought out a selection box for each one of us. We were so excited!
A big thanks to Alex’s mum for sending in yummy Christmas cupcakes. They were devoured within minutes. They were a lovely treat for us to have after taking part in or school show. Thanks again to Alex’s mum. What a talent to have!
Can I have that one?
Mr. O Dea, our home school liason teacher, had a nice surprise for us today. He brought gingerbread men for us to ice. We were very creative with our icing. Afterwards we gobbled up our gingerbread men. Yum, Yum!
