Nollag Shona ó Rang a Ceathair

4th Class completed their Cycle Right programme. It was a great success and the girls learned new skills and how to keep themselves safe on the road.

It has been a very productive first term and the girls have done an amazing job in keeping our school a safe and happy place.

Wishing each of you a safe, peaceful and happy Christmas.

Christmas Preparations and All-Ireland Weekend……….. Na Déise Abú!

Dasher looking dashing for Christmas!

Dasher is also trying to have a sustainable Christmas this year. We used recycled materials to make his Christmas outfit.

And we are off……..

A busy week!

This week 4th class started a six week programme called ‘Cycle Right.’ We learned about the three checks to do before getting on a bicycle.

  1. Check your helmet
  2. Check your clothes
  3. Check your bike.

We have been putting in a great effort this week learning our tables and having great fun competing against each other in “Hit the Button”. Eva won our challenge this week….Well Done Eva!

We are also really enjoying our new novel Sam Hannigan’s Woof Week. We are having great fun with our predictions and making connections with our own lives.

Stay Safe!

The compliments were flying today for World Kindness Day.

Welcome back!

It was great to see the girls return safely to school on Monday. We had a big surprise on Monday when Alan Nolan the author of our class novel ‘Conor’s Caveman’ did a live video call with our class to answer our questions about this book and his experience during lockdown. Alan also illustrates his own books and he took our class through a step by step approach on how to draw a penguin. We all had so much fun on our first day back. A big thanks to Alan for his time and patience.

Homework continued this week with Read at Home 4 and reading for pleasure. Next week 4th class will focus on the strategy ‘Making connections’. The girls will read pages 21 to 24 for homework. It is great to see the girls enjoying reading in school and exploring new authors.

Have a lovely weekend and stay safe.
