Spring Flowers

Our Autumn bulbs finally sprung up. During the Winter they got food from the soil, light from the sun and we gave them water. Some of our bulbs grew into crocuses and some grew into daffodils. We got to bring them home when they flowered. Look out for other signs of Spring over the Easter holidays.

World Book Day

To celebrate World Book Day we talked about our favourite books: Ms. Downey’s is Hansel and Gretel and Ms. O’ Doherty’s is The Elves and the Shoemaker. We visited our lovely School Library where Ms. Downey read the story Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book. In the classroom we watched Charlie and Lola in But excuse me that is MY book.

Mother’s Day

We love our wonderful Mammies in Ms. Downey’s Class and for Mother’s Day we decorated poems with our handprints and painted and cut out flowers in vases which we filled with yummy marshmallows. We want to say a big THANK YOU to our Mammies for all they do for us!

Seachtain na Gaeilge ( Week of Irish )

During Seachtain na Gaeilge we practised lots of Irish during the day. We learned a simple Irish Jig. We taught our Mammies and Daddies some Irish:

  • Hello: Dia duit ( Dee a gwitch )
  • Goodbye: Slán leat ( Slawn lat )
  • Thank you: Go raibh maith agat ( Guh rev moh agut )
  • You’re welcome: Tá failte romhat ( Taw fall che wrote )


St. Patrick’s Day

We cut out and glued Leprechaun Hats and we used marshmallows to paint flag patterns and shamrocks on our St. Patrick’s Day Cards. We did some lovely writing inside our cards too.

February 13th 2018

On Pancake Tuesday Ms. Downey’s boys and girls listened to the story of The Big Pancake and they knew it wasn’t a good idea for the pancake to take a ride across the river on the pig’s back : Yum! Yum!

They said the rhyme Mix a Pancake. Then it was time to flip a pancake:

decorate a pancake:

and finally eat a pancake!

Yum! Yum! Such fun

Ms. Downey’s Class has been learning all about clothes. We talked about clothes for cold, wet and hot weather. We learned that some jobs have uniforms. We played some clothes games on the computer on and Ms. Downey read the stories

The Smartest Giant in the Town 


The Elves and the Shoemaker.

We looked at the patterns on the bottom of our shoes and we tried to copy them.










We cut out, coloured and decorated shoes.
