On Friday we held Grandparents Day. We went to mass first then some of the grandparents came in to school to visit the classrooms. In Junior Infants we showed our grandparents our art work and classroom. It was lovely to have so many visitors.
Sixth Class held a mock election for the whole school ahead of the general election on Saturday. We went to the hall to vote – we had to give in our polling cards, collect our ballot papers and pick our top 5 candidates.
As part of our Aistear topic on shopping we tasted a variety of fruit and vegetables – sugar snap peas, red pepper, grapefruit, kiwi, pineapple and mango. Some children were more reluctant than others but everyone who was in on the different days tried the food on offer that day.
Second class went on a nature trip to Hazelwood with a wildlife expert Shailagh Healy. The children had a great time exploring the woods and learning lots of new facts. They continued the learning back in class with Shailagh.

We have enjoyed doing Christmas artwork, fun activities and reading Christmas stories in our class. Here are some of the pieces we have made

The children in 4th Class have finished their sewing just in time for Christmas. It will make a very special present for the person it was intended for. Here are some pictures of their hard work during the process and the finished pieces.
Santa has come to Junior Infants. We used different materials to make our Santas – paint, glue, cotton wool and crepe paper.
We made penguins in Junior Infants. We coloured our shapes in then cut them out and finally glued them together.
We have had great fun in our opticians – making appointments, testing our eyes and of course trying on glasses. We also had a visit from Nuala an optomotrist who talked to us about looking after our eyes and all the different tests she does on eyes.
Sixth class came and showed us how to play some maths games so that we can now play them on our own.
