Tomorrow, Friday we are having a junior infants teddy bears picnic. Please pick your favourite teddy to bring to school tomorrow!
Two children from each class have been picked to represent counties in the St. Fergal’s Mini All Ireland. From our class, Dylan was playing for Kildare and Steven played for Wicklow. Wicklow were victorious so Steven will go on to play in the semi final tomorrow. Both boys played very well and had lots of support from the rest of our class!
We had a brilliant day on our school tour to Glenroe Farm and Zoom. Thank you to all the parents who came along and helped out on the day. A huge amount of planning and preparation went into making the day a success and I’m delighted that the boys and girls had such a lovely time on their JI school tour! We are lucky to have so many great amenities on our doorstep in Wicklow. Take a look at some photos of the day below:
Over the next couple of weeks I will gradually send home completed books and work belonging to the children. Yesterday I sent home the Grow in Love workbook. You can keep it at home.
I will also be sending home the maths books, the handwriting book, the scrapbook and a variety of worksheets.
You may want to complete any pages in the book which your child has missed.
All for now.
This week is Active Schools Week in our school. Everyday we have a different active activity. Today was a hip hop class – Sly came in to teach us some moves and the boys and girls had a ball!
*You may notice my poor editing skills – we shared a dance slot with children from another class and as I do not have permission to use their photos I have edited them out.
All for now!
Great news: Our pumpkin seeds have started to sprout, if all goes according to plan St. Fergal’s will be well supplied with pumpkins for Halloween 2017🎃
We’re still waiting for our marigolds to make an appearance but our cress seeds are doing well. They’ll be going home with the children soon!
Our school garden has been transformed by Joe, our caretaker, and lots of other volunteers and helpers. It looks fantastic and was constructed using lots of recycled materials. We were entered into a competition for school gardens in the Bray area and were awarded a prize! It’s going to be a great resource for everyone in our school! Take a look at some photos below:
