Happy Birthday Ciara

Ciara turned 6 today. Happy Birthday. We had a lovely time dancing and singing and tucking into yummy party bags that Ciara’s mum sent in. Thanks mum. We all had a great time.

Santa arrives in Greenmount

Wow! The excitement today when Santa arrived for a quick visit from the North Pole!!! He brought yummy selection boxes for all the children. We promised him that we’ve been very good all year and that we’ll go to bed early on Christmas Eve. Ho, Ho, Ho!

Christmas Dress Rehearsal

The Language Classes had their dress rehearsal on Friday. Don’t they look so cute in their costumes? Here they are mid-song, giving it socks. We’re all looking forward to the show on Tuesday so that we can show off to our families.

Tennis Lessons

We have been learning how to play tennis for the past 8 weeks. At first we didn’t know how to even hold the tennis racket. Now we can volley across a net. Go us!

Science Week

We did an amazing experiment for Science week. We placed skittles around in a circle on a plate and then poured warm water over them. It created a beautiful rainbow when the skittles dissolved.

Then we tried it on our own. Teacher gave us each a plastic cup and a skittle. We put the skittle in the cup and poured warm water on top. We were amazed to see the water in the cup change colour.

Icing buns

We iced buns today. Teacher brought in icing sugar and we mixed it with water to make icing. We had to mix it for a very long time. Phew! Then we put it on top of the buns with a smartie to decorate. As soon as the icing was dry, we were able to eat our buns. Yum, yum!

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!

We had so much fun carving our pumpkin.

We discovered that pumpkins have seeds inside. We’ll plant these and hopefully they will grow. (Fingers crossed everyone!)

Look at how proud we are!

We have mini pumpkins also that we will carve in our classrooms and bring home to our families.         

 

Club Ceoil

On the 12th of December some of the teachers from Club Ceoil came in to play some Traditional Irish Music. We had a really enjoyable morning and got to listen to Abby on the violin, Paul on the concertina and keyboard and Jim on the guitar! We also heard Maurice playing the banjo and Ryan played the bodhrán for us! We thank Ryan’s dad again for a wonderful morning! Big happy birthday to Niamh and Oisín who turn 12 today!!!  Enjoy the pictures below!
