First Class Blog

Welcome back Rang A Haon !

I would like to say a huge welcome back to First Class. I can’t believe our first week back in school is over. I have met some of the parents already and I am looking forward to getting to know the rest of you in the coming weeks.
We have a new girl in our class, Laura and all of the children are making sure she is settling in.

We are busy learning to count to 100, we are reading about the adventures of Mog the cat, we have started our new class reader, ‘Books, Books, Books’ and we have learned the names of the characters in our new Irish book’ Abair Liom’ : Tafaí, Lola, Seán, Oisín, Síofra, Mamaí, Daidaí, Mamó agus Daideo.

I would like to thank those of you who have sent in the 25 euro for Arts and Crafts . It is very much appreciated. I use it to buy paint, scissors, coloured card, Art resources and it goes towards photocopying such as the children’s coloured hundred square and busy bee books I make for the girls during the year.

Have a lovely weekend everyone and thank you for the great effort you are putting into the girls homework. It is very much appreciated.

10 Humpty Dumpty Time.

We sang our Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme to junior infants and there was plenty of crowd participation.  Well done to all !!

I.T Experts.

The children followed the instructions on the board and followed in two searches into Google.


We have been learning about mini beasts and micro habitats in coiscéim so the first option was ‘The Grasshopper and the Ant.  The moral of the story is always be prepared.  Why not ask your daughter to tell you what the story was about.  It’s a famous Aesop Fable.


The second option was 3D Humpty Dumpty.  We are preparing it to present to Junior Infants when we come back after the long weekend.


The completion of a lot of projects.

We concluded our ‘Stay Safe’ programme today outside.  I would like to thank all of the parents for taking the time to complete all of the worksheets.  The children shared their thoughts and what they learned to date using a number of picture cards.  There were a number of ‘what if..’ scenarios and the children used ‘thumbs up’ ‘thumbs down’ or ‘don’t know’ responses.

Drumming tomorrow !!

Look at what we learned in our second drumming workshop.  We’re all looking forward to see what tomorrow has in store.
