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.

Planting & Our School Garden

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🎃

Look carefully and you can see the husk of the pumpkin seed still attached to the top of the plant! 

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:

A professional photographer will be coming to the school next Wednesday 3rd May to take photos of junior infants. Almost everyone has brought back the consent form – thank you. If I don’t have a consent form for your child please return it on Tuesday. 

Feel free to send your child to school in their uniform on Wednesday for the photo. Normally it is our tracksuit day but you may prefer to have a picture of your child wearing their uniform – the decision is up to you!

Coming Up …

Welcome back everyone after the Easter break. It was brilliant to see so many on time and in the line this morning. You were all ready to get back to work! 

This week our sound is /j/ and we wobble our bodies as if we are wobbly jelly. 

We are also revising 2D shapes. At JI level we concentrate on the square, triangle, circle and rectangle. 

Follow up parent teacher meetings are ongoing this week. If you have forgotten you’re date/ time have a look back at my previous blog post.

All for now!
