Happy Birthday Patrick

It was Patrick’s birthday last week. We sang the birthday song and Patrick blew out his candles. The cakes were yummy.  Happy birthday Patrick!Patrick's birthdayPatrick's birthday 2

The Sun is Shining!

What a beautiful day we had today. The sun was shining!  A perfect day to go visit the Lough near our school. First we took a trip into the church where we looked at the stained glass windows and the altar. Then we said a prayer to Holy Mary as May is the month of Mary.

Next we set off to the Lough where we played in the playground and saw the swans and the ducks. We even saw some really cute ducklings.

We were exhausted at the end of our walk so we all lay down for a rest in the shade before heading back to school.

Long may the sun shine! 🙂

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

We made shamrock hats and Irish flags for St. Patrick’s Day. I’m sure the mums and dads are going to love the copious amounts of gold glitter we decorated them with. Then we dressed up in green coats. Teacher thought we looked like leprechauns but we insisted that we were St. Patrick. Here we are waving our flags. Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone.IMG_1118


Happy Birthday Andrew

Andrew celebrated his 6th birthday in school today. Here he is wearing the birthday hat.


We sang him the birthday song and then he blew out the candles


But teacher had played a trick on us. The candles kept re-lighting. So we all had to help Andrew blow out the candles.


Happy birthday Andrew!

World Book Day

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.

Pizza Party

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.

Insect Adventure

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!


Happy Valentine’s Day

The Senior Language Class made beautiful Valentine’s cards for their families. Just look at their works of art. Happy Valentines Day everyone!

A fox came to visit

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.

A Visit from the Lollipop Lady

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.
