Yesterday, we finished our ‘Seachtain Na Gaeilge’ celebrations with a wonderful ceolchoirm in the hall. Bhí an craic agus spraoi againn! We have such talented girls in Réalt Na Mára GNS and yesterday was a great opportunity to showcase that talent! Bhí dráma, ceol, amhráin, dánta agus damhsa go léir sa halla! Teacher was very proud of all the girls who took part. Take a look at our Irish dancers and their fabulous outfits. Well done girls!
In our SPHE lessons we have been discussing friendships and the importance of being a good friend. Good friends should be kind, loyal, fun, caring, respectful and trustworthy! Take a look at our beautiful acrostic poems we completed a few weeks ago in class.
We had a fun and exciting day last Wednesday when the girls wore their pyjamas to school to support the very worthy Laura Lynn Foundation. The Laura Lynn Foundation is a charity that helps very sick children and their families. Thank you to the girls for their donations and to the hard working Student Council for organising the day!
We had a busy January settling back into school after our Christmas Holidays. Can you believe we are facing into a new month and season already! The girls have been busy learning and developing new skills in our hockey lessons and are greatly enjoying swimming lessons in Aura Gym.
Last Wednesday, we were very lucky to have Ann in class with us to show us how to make St Brigid’s Crosses to mark St Brigid's Day and the first day of Spring! We also celebrated mass together to mark the holy day of our second Patron Saint and to celebrate Catholics Schools Week also. The theme for Catholic Schools week this year is Catholic Schools: Called to be a Family of Families. The programme invites Catholic schools to reflect on and to celebrate the relationship that exists between home, school and parish.
In Art this month, we had a lot of fun designing, making and painting our own Clay Creatures! Have a look at our crazy monsters below and other photos of what we got up to this month!
We have had a busy few weeks in school getting ready for our Christmas Holidays. The girls have all worked very hard during their first term in 4th class and I am looking forward to continuing working with the girls in January for another term of learning and fun! Thank you all for your support so far this year. Merry Christmas and a very happy and healthy New Year to you all!
The girls worked extremely hard this term and so as an extra special treat, we visited the staff-room on Wednesday to make Hot Chocolate! We had lots of fun and played charades and other games while enjoying our yummy chocolate!
Well done to all the girls on their fantastic History Projects. I was so impressed by all the hard work and effort put into each project. The girls completed lots of research, then put together wonderful posters using beautiful handwritten and typed paragraphs, pictures, fun facts, colour, decorations and even some 3D models! It's clear the girls really enjoyed this project. Here are some pictures of some of the girls presenting their masterpieces to the class! The projects are now displayed in the hall outside our classroom for the whole school to enjoy! Well done again and thank you to anyone who may have helped at home!
