What an exciting day we had. We headed off the visit the Fly Me To The Moon workshop in The Ark in town today and what fun we had!
Artist Jole Bortoli guided the children through the exhibit answering all their questions and listening to their thoughts on the exhibit.
Everyone then got to create their idea of space and their very own space alien.
So much excitement! We moved into our new building and the children were delighted. It was hard to capture the moment because the children where so excited and couldn’t stay still for long! They love their new classroom and their Aistear room. There is so much room for them to play 🙂
Some of the Mums came in to teach us all about Diwali. We had lovely food, did fun activities and learned lots. Thanks so much to Geetha, Leelavathi, Payal, Shireesha and Suriya for a very enjoyable and informative few hours. We really were delighted to learn all these new things.
Diwali preparations are well underway and excitement is mounting for everyone…
What a wonderful way to discover all about Samhain or Halloween. A very special thank you must be given to Elaine, Farrah and John as well as all the other parents who joined in.
This morning parents of our Junior infants class came into the school to explain the origins of Halloween beginning with…
“It started long ago in Celtic times…”
Needless to say the children where enthralled with the wonderful presentation. However, it didn’t stop there. They learned all about the Púca, a creature of Celtic folklore. The children also enjoyed a game of Snap Apple (already getting in one of their five a day) and some delightful crafts.
Tomorrow we will be learning all about Diwali
