All Aboard the Christmas Express

We have had a load of fun getting ready for Christmas. We took a virtual ride on the Polar Express and got a bell from Santa’s sleigh. We made hot chocolate, counting our marshmallows. We played in fake snow, decorated Christmas trees, and ate candy canes. Everyone made Santa’s good list! Happy Christmas from Gold Class.IMG_9386IMG_9388IMG_9348IMG_9383IMG_9321IMG_9338IMG_9362

Blue Christmas

We have had a very busy run up to Christmas. We enjoyed dressing up and recording our Christmas play and taking part in other festive activities.We made some snowmen out of marshmallows and icing sugar and they were delicious! We had a great time swimming in Rosses Point too. Our members of the Green Schools Committee resused their old jumpers and upcycled them with some great new designs!

5.23 Show an awareness of being part of an acting group

5.24 Co-operate or work alongside/in parallel with others in making, choosing and using props, costumes and sets

5.25 Work independently or collaboratively to produce a rehearsed piece of drama for an audience

5.26 Express and/or identify emotions in a dramatic context

Fantasic work everyone…

Credit Union Art Competiton

Some students from Red Class did a small study of the colours of Autumn. They gathered leaves and also studied leaves collected by staff showing  the beautiful variety of colours that can appear on the trees at this time of year. Students then created their own piece of art using watercolour paints and some chose to also use the leaves collected.





We entered the above artworks into the Credit Union “Wonderful World’ Art competition and were delighted to hear some won prizes in the competition. Well done Reece, Eireann and Maja.
