Team Hope Christmas Shoe Box Appeal

 

The shoe box appeal leaflets are in the process of being sent home with the children, for those who wish to participate in this appeal.  It is by no means compulsory.

This year Team Hope have supplied us with pre-printed flat pack boxes for this purpose; however you may still use normal shoe boxes.  We will distribute one per family on Monday.

Please note that all filled shoe boxes must be returned to school by Wednesday 23rd October, as our local Team Hope collector has asked.  Any shoe boxes received after this date will be sent home again with the children for you to take to a collection point yourself.

Each classroom will store their own shoe boxes until the collection day.

4th and 5th “Stars of the week” for last week. Keep up the hard work!

Exploring Autumn Colours

Senior Infants & First Class were very busy exploring all the beautiful colours of autumn.

Inspired by the poem ‘Duilleoga Deasa’ we used cotton buds & paint to create beautiful trees in an autumn landscape.

We also learned about how different animals, such as the native red squirrel, prepare during autumn for the coming winter season.

We then created beautiful pictures of the squirrel using a template, wax crayons, crepe paper & pva glue.

We really enjoyed shredding & sticking the crepe paper.
