After a lovely Summer break the boys and girls returned in September excited to see their friends, their new classroom and of course, to stay in school until 3 o’clock!! The children settled straight back into school, coming up with our new class rules and routines. We listened to lots of lovely stores like ‘My Class is a Family’ and ‘I promise’ by Lebron James to help us with our own class promise. The boys and girls talked loads about kindness and respect and how we can be bucket fillers from our story ‘How to Fill a Bucket’. We have had lots of fun doing art, PE and GAA. In SESE the children have been exploring all things Autumn, we even had a visit from Hattie the Hedgehog before she goes into Hibernation. The children have been great Autumn detectives filling our nature basket with beautifully coloured leaves and shiny conkers! Well done boys and girls!
Take a look at our September Movie to see some of the fun we have been getting up to this month 🙂
What a fun month we have had in October! The start of the month saw the return of our taster week with ‘Food Dudes’. The children explored and tried new fruits and vegetables, even if they thought they didn’t like them, they gave it a try! We visited the church for the first time with the whole entire school and performed our ‘Monday Morning’ song at the top of the Alter. This was great fun, the children enjoyed it so much that they even asked could they do it again! We had an amazing Maths Week this year, from maths trails to maths quizzes in the hall. With our maths eyes, we explored at home and found lots of maths in every day things like shapes and numbers to the time on our clocks. First class completed, for the first time, BINGO over Zoom with Miss Walsh as our BINGO host- This was so exciting!! Take a look at our October Movie!
The fun didn’t stop there… we finished up the month for Halloween with Freaky Friday. Mrs Walsh collected a class full of pirates, pumpkins, police officers, witches, ghostbusters and many more strange characters and we walked from St Martin’s pitch to school and the children had a Halloween disco in the hall. The children worked so hard for the month that they got to have a hot chocolate party too! You may not recognise anyone, but take a look out our Spooktacular week below.
