Hall Noticeboards

A new term means new displays in the hall. This term the children have outdone themselves. The boards are looking so bright and colourful.

Mrs Adderley's Class
The Junior Infants in Room 12 have been learning the story The Owl Babies by Martin Waddell. They used printing techniques to create this wonderful display. Well done everyone. 

Ms Moore's Class
In Senior Infants the boys and girls in Room 16 created these wonderful Emperor Penguins by cutting and sticking pieces of paper together. 
The march of the penguins has begun!

Mrs O Connor's Class
This colourful display was created by the children in First class in Room 7. They have been studying the work of Wassily Kandinsky and his vivid use of colours. The children then created their own Kandinsky Circles. 

Ms Knowles' Class
And finally in Room 4, the Second class children have been studying the tragic events of the Titanic in history. Here they have created what it must have been like to look out the cabin window on that fateful night and see a large iceberg straight ahead.

Grandparents Day

Grandparents Day
As part of Catholic School's Week, some of the teachers invited grandparents to visit the classroom and see all the wonderful things that their grandchildren are doing in school. It is a great opportunity for them to see where they sit in class, who their friends are and to meet the class teacher.

In Junior Infants, Eva's Granny and Grandad popped into Room 12 to say hello and meet all the children. They all made Grandparents Day cards and Eva presented them with a bunch of daffodils. 

In First Class in Room 8, Emma’s nanny Pauline and Lucy’s granny Breda came to visit the classroom and answered all of the children's questions about their childhood. The boys and girls then performed a poem called ‘Grandparents’ Day’ and sang the song ‘You are my Sunshine’ for the special visitors.  They also made up an acrostic poem about grandparents and what makes them special, listened to a story about grandparents and remembered some happy times that they have spent with their grandparents. Lucy’s granny Breda very kindly baked some delicious buns and cookies for the class which they all  enjoyed!

A BIG thank you to all the grandparents who popped in to visit us today.
