We went to a céilí on Friday with senior infants, first class, fifth class and sixth class. We danced with fifth and sixth class. First we did shoe the donkey then the Siege of Ennis. We had great fun.
As part of our Aistear topic we read the story of Elmer and made our own Elmers. We also made giraffes. We had to do a lot of cutting, sticking and colouring. We think they look great.
Our recent Aistear topic was safari. We had different roles – the driver, the assistant/guide and the customers. We had to buy tickets, check in with the driver, listen to the guide, use the binoculars to find the animals and tick them off our list. The driver and guide had to sell the tickets, follow the map and help the customers find the animals.

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 are all very excited about Christmas in second class! We have been practising for our Christmas concert in the church every day and today is the big day when we perform in front of all our families and friends. We have enjoyed doing Christmas artwork, fun activities and reading Christmas stories in our class. Here are some of the pieces we have made
