Happy Christmas December 22, 2010

Filed under: News — Miss Dillon @ 5:53 pm

Due to the snow the school will be closed until Monday 10th January 2011. I’d like to wish all you all a very Happy Christmas. Thank you all for your co-operation and support so far this year. Enjoy the break!


Message for the children of the class

Filed under: Special Events — Miss Dillon @ 12:32 pm

I know not everyone in the class will see this so I’d appreciate it if you could pass on this message to the other children/ parents of children in the class.

I know we are all very disappointed that we could not show our nativity play to our families and the rest of the school today. I want to let you all know that we WILL put on the play after the Christmas holidays for both families and relatives as well as the other classes. We have worked very hard over the last few weeks so rest assured everyone will get the opportunity to see the children’s nativity play.

Update posted here later as to whether or not the school is open tomorrow 23rd. Thanks, Miss Dillon. 


School closed tomorrow Wednesday 22nd December 21, 2010

Filed under: News — Miss Dillon @ 11:08 pm

Due to the heavy snow the school will be closed tomorrow. The nativity play will therefore not go ahead as planned. We will definitely put the play on for parents at some stage as I know how hard all the children have worked to learn their songs and lines (they should be very proud of themselves!) We will find out tomorrow whether the school will re-open on Thursday 23rd.


Parent contact numbers December 19, 2010

Filed under: News — Miss Dillon @ 3:21 pm

A few parents from the class have asked if it is possible to get a list of phone numbers of other parents. As it is a new class many parents may not have the contact numbers of other parents and would like to. I cannot give out numbers without your permission, so I am leaving a box outside the classroom door tomorrow Monday 20th and if you would like other parents in the class to have your phone number then please write it on a slip of paper and put it into the box. I will pass these numbers on to one of the parents in the class at the end of the day. Thanks.

December writing

Filed under: Our Work — Miss Dillon @ 6:19 pm

Today the children wrote sentences based on a poster we are discussing in Gaeilge. They made up their own sentences about what they see in the poster (feicim…..) and what they don’t see (ní fheicim…). Here are some examples of the great work they did (from top left across: Scott, Cillian and Jack), (below Isabel and Zoe’s work) Well done!
