A huge thank you to everyone who attended our production of Roald Dahl’s Little Red Riding Hood. The girls put in a lot of preparation, singing the songs and rehearsing their scenes. We hope you enjoyed watching it as much as we enjoyed performing it!
We were learning about toys in the past. We each did an interview with someone from home about the toys they used to play with. We also brought in some of the old toys our parents still had. We spoke about the Late Late Toy Show….to our AMAZEMENT we had a surprise visitor one Friday. Ryan Tubridy came in to the school. Fourth class asked him about his job presenting the Toy Show. He loves to read!
We wrote Limericks in class. They are five lined poems. The first, second and last line rhyme. The third and fourth line then rhyme with each other too. We wrote Limericks about snowmen, Christmas and winter.
We spoke about Christmas traditions around the world. Maybelene’s mum very kindly took the time to visit the class. She told us about Christmas in the Philippines. On our last day she made us some traditional Filippino food. It was delicious! Thank you! 🙂
On Wednesday the 19th of December we attended a carol service in St. Gabriel’s church. The second and sixth class sang beautifully on the altar. We joined in with the songs we knew. When we came back to the school we went to the hall for Mrs. McCarthy’s annual raffle (Crannchur an Príomhoide). Mary and Ailbhe won prizes. The Parent’s Association gave us a box of chocolates to share around the class.
Check out our lovely Christmas art! We drew reindeer and cut out penguins. Aren’t they cute?!
Thank you to Caoimhe who has finished her term as class president. Elections for a new class president will take place tomorrow.
