Internet Safety Day (February 6th 2018)

Dear Parents,

The children of First Class will be asked to wear their Christmas Jumper/T-Shirt to school on Wednesday December 20th for the Christmas School Concert which will take place at 1pm. They will be asked to wear their school tracksuit bottoms, or school trousers.

Look forward to seeing you all then,

Ms. Burns

Toys from the past

Thank you to all the children and their parents/grandparents.  They have brought in some very old and special toys from long ago.  The children have really enjoyed our history lessons and show and tell.

December 1st 2017

Please have a look at your child’s letter to Santa which we did in class to practice our script handwriting. I am so proud of the standards you have all achieved in such a short space of time. Maith sibh go léir Rang a hAon!

A copy of each letter has been put in the North Pole post box at the school entrance. It is emptied regularly by the elves.

Kind Regards,

Ms. Burns <3

 Dear Parents/Guardians,

 Welcome to First Class!

 I am looking forward to getting to know everybody this year.

 Firstly, let me tell you all about our Literacy Initiative. The children will each have a turn to take Alowishus  (classroom teddy) home this year. They will be asked to write a short diary entry of how they spent the  evening with him. The children are welcome to draw a picture under their writing or stick a photograph in  the book.

 Your support would be greatly appreciated in assisting the children to write these sentences  independently. The children will have an opportunity to read their diary entry to the class each week.

 Kind Regards,

 Ms. Burns 🙂
