Ten at Ten

We are an active school and this January and February we have been taking part in Operation Transformation - Ten at Ten. At 10am each morning, we do 10 minutes of exercise.

We enjoy the activities. We find it 'wakes us up' and gets our brain ready for work.

Music - Rhythm

We use the following programme to listen to rhythms. We are focusing on ta, ti-ti and rest rhythms.

Pancake Tuesday/Valentine's Day

We were very happy to have pancakes at school today.We thank Mrs Sweeney, Mrs McCafferty, Michelle, Susan and Erica for cooking and preparing them for us.

For our Valentine's Art, we looked at the famous artist Kandinsky and used his 'concentric' style to draw hearts. We painted using warm colours.

Catholic Schools Week

Our favourite day of Catholic Schools Week is Grandparents Day. We had a special mass for our grandparnts and were delighted that some of them could visit our classroom to talk about their lives as children.

We celebrate St. Brigid's Day today and made St. Brigid's crosses. We hope to put up in our homes to keep us safe for the year ahead.
