Welcome to our monthly blog.
In the preparation for Christmas we in Ms.Henderson's Class have been working very hard on a 'Winter Wonderland' that will be displayed in the school foyer.
It has many elements including Santa's grotto, a gingerbread house, sleigh and reindeer, Christmas trees, snowmen, elves, Mr and Mrs Claus and a path connecting it all. It is decorated with twinkly lights and a white tinsel border.
We are preparing for our Christmas play which we will preform for the classes and our parents. It is called Cinderella Rockerfella, it is a twist on the classic fairy tale.
Every year our school provides a Christmas breakfast for all the pupils. It costs five euro in order to raise money for the music committee. On the same day we will be wearing Christmas jumpers to raise money for Crumlin children's hospital, Dublin.
We hope you enjoyed our first blog we will be back with more in the New Year.
