December in Katie’s Fifth Class
This year our school took part in the MS Readathon. The aim of the MS Readathon is to encourage children to engage with reading and to take enjoyment out of the worlds they delve into whilst at the same time raising funds for MS Ireland. The children learned about Multiple Sclerosis and how it impacts the lives of people in Ireland.
Katie and Síofra’s fifth classes, Sally’s fourth class and Róisín and Marcella’s third classes took part in the MS Readathon. The children in these classes spent one full month (from the 11th of October to the 11th of November) reading as many books as possible and collecting sponsorship money for MS Ireland. All classes were very enthusiastic and engaged wholeheartedly with all aspects of the MS Readathon.
We were delighted when we took the final tally of sponsorship money collected, which amounted to €2,378.29, all of which was sent on to MS Ireland to help all those who suffer with Multiple Sclerosis.
We are so proud of all the children who took part in the MS Readathon. All certificates and prizes will be awarded in February 2020. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who donated money to this very worthy cause.
Aistear & Soccer in Amanda’s Junior Infants
We have had great fun doing Aistear for the past few weeks. Our theme is “The Home” and we have been playing in the “Home Corner”, we’ve been building houses in “Construction”, playing with small houses and buildings in “Small World” and playing a Three Little Pigs boardgame!
We have been so lucky to have wonderful coaches come in to teach us soccer skills, it has been great fun!
