Today we said goodbye to Mr McGahon who has been teaching us this term. After Easter, Miss Kellegher will be back from her maternity leave to take us for the rest of the year.
Goodbye Mr McGahon and thank you for looking after us so well. Here’s the poem we put on his card…
Just a reminder that our school plays are being held on Monday 17th December. All the children need is a Christmas jumper and plain navy or black bottoms for their performance. These can be worn into school on that day to avoid changing in school.

It was lovely to meet some of you this week at the parent teacher meetings. Here is an update with some of what the children have been learning over the past few weeks.
We have been learning all about the Gingerbread man. We read the story and sequenced pictures. In Art we painted and decorated our very own gingerbread men using a variety of materials. We made gingerbread men using play dough. And finally the children’s favourite – we decorated our own gingerbread cookies using icing, sprinkles and chocolate buttons!
As our term with Niall Tether from Fit Kids has finished we will now commence PE on a Tuesday. Can the children please have a tracksuit and runners on for those days please 🙂
The last 12 tricky words have now been inserted into your child’s tricky word book. Please continue to revise these and previous tricky words with your child on a regular basis as this greatly helps with their reading fluency as they will meet these words time and time again. The children will also have new alternative words and sounds in their Word Book. Please take the time to go over these.
Just a gentle reminder that if your child is off school for whatever reason, could you please make sure they inform the school or bring in a note on their return. 🙂
Finally, Senior Infants will take part in a short concert on Monday 17th December in the school hall. Can you please let me know in advance if your child will be unavailable that day.
Thank you all so much
