We are delighted to introduce our class for this year!

Christmas Celebrations!

We have had a wonderful time during December.  We had a Christmas-themed day where children bought presents for their families in our pop-up shop!  Sandra did a great job on the till, even providing children with handwritten receipts.  After that we had a decoration making station, a card making station, a gift bag making station and a wrapping station.  After that, we were well and truly ready for lunch – a special treat from Supermac’s!  Delicious!!!  We had a merry Christmas sing-a-long with Noel on our last full day and sang and danced with the parents who were able to come and join us.  It was Noel’s birthday so we ended with a heartfelt version of Happy Birthday and, of course, cake.  Happy Christmas everyone!

Fiddle Playing

As a special treat, Noel brought in his old fiddle.  We each took turns to play and experiment with the sounds we could make.  Thanks, Noel, it was a great idea!


We had a great few days before our mid-term Halloween holiday began.  We had the party [see below], played Halloween games in the hall, we dressed up as a rainbow with rain clouds for the parade and then celebrated Marie and Deirdre’s special birthdays.  We certainly needed a week off after all that activity!!

Halloween Party

We had a fantastic time at the Sacred Heart School yesterday for the annual Halloween party.  The children were just so excited and this year, parents really outdid themselves with the costumes.  We can’t wait for the main event next week – the Halloween Parade!!!

Road Safety Week

We really enjoyed working with Alexandria to learn about Road Safety.  We got to practice crossing the road safely.  In the giant car, we learned about fastening seat belts and tightening them.  We did so well, we all got our Safety Licences!


We have enjoyed our two dance sessions with Ciara.  Just look at our moves!
