Winter assembly and note home

As you might know, we are doing a Winter Assembly on the 16th of December at 9.15 a.m.

Today, the children were given a note and their parts. If your child brought lines home, please practice these with them as well as their homework each night.

The children will need costumes for this assembly so here are some suggestions for costume ideas.


Red tshirts/jumpers and jeans or red dress


White fairy dress/or long white plain shirt, white tights, slippers or soft shoes, tinsel for halo, small wings (optional)

Snow flakes:

Long white shirt, white tights/trousers, soft shoes/slippers


Blue dress/long shirt, white tights, blue/white cloth or towel for head


Long shirt, dark trousers


Long shirt, cloth/towel for head

Wise Men:

Long coloured t-shirt, coloured trousers

Please let me know if your child will not be here for the Winter Assembly as we have already allocated parts and would need to know as soon as possible if we have to change these parts.

Thank you all for your support, it really is much appreciated!

'a, a, ants on my arm!'

Today we learned all about the sound...

Our rhyme for this sound goes like this - 'Curve around, up like a helicopter, bump, back down and kick.' We made sure to check our classroom for things beginning with the 'a' sound so you could have a look around and see if you can spot anything beginning with 'a' outside school!

At Home in Aistear!

The children were learning all about the 'Home' in Aistear over the last two weeks. They talked about themselves, their families, their homes and met our new Aistear friend, Beebot! The Beebot is a 'coding robot' that can be used in a huge amount of ways to teach many topics and already the children are having great fun with it, while learning a vast amount of vocabulary linked to each topic. 
They also built their dream home, made family members and houses out of playdoh, painted their 'hidden names' and played with small houses and toys from the home.
Take a look at what some of the children got up to 'At Home'!
