World Book Day

Fourth Class celebrated World Book Day on March 2nd. The girls enjoyed a trip to the library, art activities, Buddy Reading with Junior Infants and lots of reading.

Pancake Tuesday

Fourth Class had a lovely time decorating their pancakes. We even got treated to a very tasty Moldovan dessert.

We learned how to make pancakes and wrote up the procedure. Flipping our pancakes was great fun but not quite as good as eating them! Yum.

Happy Grandparent’s Day

We celebrated Grandparent’s Day yesterday as part of Catholic Schools Week. The girls wrote reports introducing their Grannies and Grandads while showing beautiful photos to the class. We read the Thought for the Day over the intercom, said prayers, lit a candle and made cards for these very special people. It was a lovely celebration.
