Christmas Play

We are just starting work on our Christmas Play! Lines for each child will be sent home today.

Most children will be speaking their line as part of a group of narrators and one or two children have a line which they will say on their own. ‘Auditions’ were held to decide who would have a solo line/ song.

Please practise the line at home so that your child can say it off by heart with volume and clarity. We will also practise the lines in school.

We also started Irish dancing today with Claire. We will have 6 lessons with her.

Please note that there will be no Grow in Love homework this Thursday.

Coming Up · Important · Parent Teacher Meetings

Parent Teacher Meetings

Parent Teacher Meetings for Senior Infants will take place from Monday 20th to Thursday 23rd November.

Notes have gone home today with a suggested time for you. I have scheduled all meetings after school. If you would prefer a morning meeting (8.20 am) please see me to arrange it.

Please return slips as soon as possible – slips should be signed by the adult attending the meeting.

Thank you.

Coming Up · Grow in Love · Homework

In November We Remember

Good morning all and welcome back to the new school term!

Please note that this week we will be discussing people who have passed away as part of our Grow in Love lesson. This may be a difficult topic for some families and we will discuss it in a sensitive manner.

The homework page in the workbook will be marked as optional and families may choose to complete the page or leave it blank. Have a look at the homework page below – you may choose to have a chat about the loss of a pet or someone you know or you may choose to skip this homework entirely.

All for now.

Maths Week

This week we are taking part in Maths week.

Mr Moloney organised a visit from Ms. Scanlon’s 6th class children who came to teach us how to play snakes and ladders.

The boys and girls loved having their older ‘teachers’ working with them.

As well as learning about taking turns and following instructions, the children were also practising number recognition, counting on and subitising.
