Thank you Thea

We would like to say a big thank you to Thea who donated €100 to our local charity,

St. Vincent De Paul for Christmas. She is such a generous and thoughtful young girl who wanted to do something for children who are not as lucky as her at this time of the year. We would like to say a special word of thanks to her parents too.

The True Meaning of Christmas

In Religion today we learned about ‘The First Crib’ and where the whole idea came from. It was St. Francis of Assisi who wanted to remember the birth of Jesus and include Mary, Joseph, the shepherds and the Kings who played an important role on this very special occasion. He, with his friend John, who lived in Greccio, set up the very first crib in the centre of the town. This idea soon caught on and it spread throughout Italy and neighbouring countries.

We walked to the crib in Collooney and took time to reflect on the importance of Christmas and to thank God for sending baby Jesus. Without Jesus there would be no Christmas 👼🏼🙏🏼.

Christmas Dance Club/PE

On Friday 17th December from 11:45-12:30 we tuned in live to FYI dance club channel on YouTube. The teacher was called Zoë and she was really nice and we had great fun. We learned lots of moves e.g. two step, crossover, the slide, highway, windmill and roll poly. We danced to Christmas 🎅🏼 Tunes 🎶 🎶🎶🎶🎄🎅🏼 e.g. Rockin Around the Christmas tree 🎄, Last Christmas.
She even gave our class a big shout out, Mrs Muldoons class from Collooney, Co. Sligo 👏👏.

DENMARK 🇩🇰 …….Group projects

In Geography, we have been learning all about Denmark. We found this a really interesting country, with some very unusual foods, different Christmas traditions and it has a bridge that links it to its neighbours Sweden 🇸🇪 !!!

The class were divided up into their groups and we chose the following topics to base our project on: Facts about Denmark, Foods, Famous People from Denmark, Christmas 🎄 Traditions 🎅🏼🤶🏼 and famous landmarks found in Denmark.

Movement Breaks

We have had great fun getting involved in exercising in the classroom for our Active Green Flag. We have been doing activities from the Irish Heart ❤️ Foundation website. Our favourites are Funky Fruit Movements, Dance Dice 🎲 and the time/activity jars 🏃🏼🏃🏽‍♀️😅😅

3D Shape Walk

The children learned all about cubes, cuboids, cylinders, cones, triangular prisms, spheres and pyramids in Maths. They were really good at spotting shapes around the classroom so we decided to take a walk around the grounds of the school. They found lots of shapes using their Maths eyes 👀 and were really surprised 😲 how many they spotted!! The blue shed, timber sheds, the oil tank, window boxes, the prefabs, chimneys, chimney pots, a basketball 🏀 and the railings outside some classrooms to name but a few!!!
