Santa Comes to Visit!!

We had a very special visitor on our last day of term - Santa popped in to say hello! We sang songs for him. We all had a little chat with him and he gave us a treat! We promised we'd be in bed early Christmas Eve when he visits again!! We're so happy he came to visit!

Festive Art

Our Christmas Trees and Polar Bears!!



The Sleepy Shepherd

We performed our Christmas play 'The Sleepy Shepherd' last night. We sang songs, said our lines clearly and acted out our parts. Our mummies, daddies and families were in the audience to cheer us on. We did a fantastic job!!

Aistear - Christmas

We are most certainly in the Christmas spirit in the Senior Infants classroom.

Playdough Area
We have lots of playdough activities to choose from. We make stockings for the fireplace, put buttons on the snowmen, design and make snowflakes, give antlers to the reindeer etc. 

Writing Area
We are writing Christmas present lists.

Role Play Area
It is very busy in Santa's Workshop - we take on the roles of Santa, Mrs Clause and the elves. We have  toys to design and make. They must be packed and wrapped and loaded onto the sleigh by Christmas Eve.

Computer Area
We were super excited to use the laptops for the first time this year. We played Christmas Maths games. Most of them were based on counting. Click on the link to play at home.

Christmas Play Update

Parents,
Preparations are well underway for our Christmas Play - the children are singing their songs and practicing their lines. Thank you for your help.

This week, we will organise costumes please. We have the main parts of costumes at school; I've sent a note home with some children for costumes needed.

Thanks.
