6th Class Visit to The National Gallery last week

Following a very busy November learning about The Renaissance, the children of 6th class visited The National Gallery on Tuesday. They had the wonderful opportunity to explore some art from The Renaissance period including ‘The Taking of Christ’ by Caravaggio – a very famous renaissance artist. While we were there the children had the opportunity to explore art from other periods as well as some Irish artists and artwork.

Junior infants Blue went on a wintry walk to spot ice and frost in the school “woods”. We saw the beautiful ice sculptures that 1st class made and the half-moon in the sky and even a frozen mushroom.

Fluency Café

1st classes have been enjoying Fluency Café on Fridays where each child performs a piece of text that they have prepared over the course of the week.  I’d like to acknowledge and thank Aisling, last year’s 1st class teacher, who has inspired this practice and to also Caroline, Dee and Grace who have embraced it whole heartedly.   1st class parents are invited in tomorrow morning to see it in action, you’re in for a treat!

Senior Infants are having a little performance for parents next Monday in the hall at 1:00pm. They’re all very excited about it!

Thanks to Catherine our chairperson and the Board of Management who take on significant responsibility in their oversight role, the silent but hugely supportive team who are instrumental in the running and the success of the school.
