Follow the story of our Christmas play, The Match Girl's Christmas. We thoroughly enjoyed retelling Hans Christian Andersen's Match Girl intertwined with the Nativity.
We were busy doing some Christmas art work behind the scenes!
Christmas Art Competition: Lots of children from our school entered a Christmas Art Competition run by G & L Centra. Thanks to the children for all of the lovely art work and to Centra for the lovely prizes! Here are the winners:
We were very lucky today to have former Arsenal player and Galway native Stephen O'Donnell in to talk to us today. Stephen spoke about his time at Arsenal, playing against Roy Keane in Scotland, scoring a historic penalty in Europe and winning league titles in Ireland. Stephen also emphasised the importance of working hard in whatever you want to achieve and about concentrating on your education also. We really enjoyed his visit. Maybe he will come back to give us some tips when the astro turf is opened in the New Year!
The School Choir accompanied by Ms. Maura Walsh sang a selection of lovely Christmas Carols in the tent with 'The Live Crib'. The Traditional Irish Music Group also played a selection of carols and festive tunes. We really enjoyed the whole performance and hope our audience did too!!
Ms Sheehan-Jones's 5th Class have had great fun practising and performing our play for our school-mates and finally gave "The performance of their lives" for their families on December 15th. Check out some photos to capture the action! We wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas and the very best of everything for 2015.
With food dudes being so popular with our class we decided to make smoothies this morning. We used lots of healthy and delicious ingredients such as apples, oranges, cucumber, berries, bananas, yoghurt and nuts. We really liked making them and drinking them and we are full of energy for the day!
We learned lots about the Normans in History. We then made our own Norman castles using images of Norman castles around Ireland for inspiration. We are proud of how they turned out.
