World Book Day 2022
We had great fun in the school for World Book Day 2022. Lots of costumes, colour and most importantly READING! Here are some photos from various classes in the school.
Junior Infants loved dressing up as some of their favourite characters.
Senior Infants certainly got into the spirit of things …
1st Class were very enthusiastic for World Book Day!
3rd Class had a great World Book Day. All the children dressed up as their favourite characters and looked fantastic. Here are a few pictures of the children ‘extreme reading’ their favourite books.
5th Class enjoyed some activities on World Book Day. Here’s 5th Class with their ‘Extreme Reading’. We got into the most extreme positions to read our books.
5th Class also tried a ‘Speed Dating’ reading activity. They each had one minute to convince a class mate to read their book, then they moved on:
6th Class sketched some of their favourite characters from books:
January 2022 in Junior Infants
We have been learning and playing all about Winter. Our Polar Explorers searched for animals in the snow. At the Travel Agents we were packing for our winter holidays and at the Clothes Shop we bought some warm, winter clothes. At the art station we created snowmen, polar bears and winter hats. The boys and girls were also busy building homes for the winter animals.
Gymnastics is our focus in PE at the moment. We are practising our different jumps, developing our rocking and rolling skills and doing lots and lots of stretching!
3rd Class Updates
Our 3rd class have had an eventful year so far!
After a very long wait, Third Class made their Communion on 16th October 2021 in the parishes of Killea and Carberry. The children all read beautifully and really enjoyed the day. We had fabulous music from Mrs McSweeney and her mother. The boys were all very smart and the girls were stunning in their white dresses. Check out some of the style here …
For Science Week some of the girls and boys brought in their robots for show and tell. We were learning how we can build robots and make robots move by writing codes on the computer. Some very impressive engineers and scientists in this class!
To commemorate the new school and engage in some climate awareness, we all planted a tree in Killea.
