November 2018

It was a busy month in Room 1.


During November Ms. Downey’s Class learned about Houses. We read the stories The Three Little Pigs and A Squash and a Squeeze.

The boys and girls made fabulous houses from blocks, Lego, stickle bricks and lollipop sticks.

Then they designed, drew and talked about their  own Dream  Houses.

Finally they looked at the patterns on the soles of their shoes and tried to copy them. Pictures to follow!

Room 10 visited The Ilac Mall Library on Wednesday. We had so much fun listening to Julianne’s funny story about crayons and we all got to borrow our own book to bring home too. Huge thanks to Julianne and all the parents for making the trip so special.



The annual Science / Maths Open Day was a great success.  Each class show-cased amazing experiments for each other.  Parents visited in the afternoon and enjoyed taking part enormously.  We even had a station organised by parents themselves.  Thanks to everybody for a super day and especially to Ms. Mongan who organised the event.
