The last few weeks have been packed with fun, excitement and creativity in the Infant Classroom. The children engaged in a variety of Christmas activities such as learning Christmas rhymes, singing songs both in English and Irish; two of our favourites being ‘Jingle Bells’ and ‘Tá an Nollaig Buaillte Linn’. We learned about Advent, The Christmas Story and chatted about Christmas traditions both in Ireland and in other countries worldwide. We also enjoyed doing a Christmas quiz together. The children made unique Christmas tree decorations using lollipop sticks and decorated with assorted jewels and buttons. Our sticky fingers got to work on making edible Christmas trees covered with smarties and sprinkles…yummy!!
All of the boys and girls in Junior and Senior Infants are on Santa’s good list this year and so we are now ready for our holidays as we eagerly await Santa’s visit… only a few more sleeps to go!
Merry Christmas everyone!
