Well done everyone – We appreciate everyone’s effort to make World Book Day so much fun!
The Winners were: Lauren, Caoilte, Oran, Maggie-May, Calum, Cormac, Lucy and Tom – Well done!
Today (Tuesday 25th February 2020) we had a Pancake themed day in our classroom.
1st, 2nd and 3rd class learned about the origins of Pancake Tuesday / Shrove Tuesday. We also learned how to sequence steps in making pancakes in our Irish lesson, and we completed maths challenge cards linked to the theme of pancakes. We also played a maths dice game with the theme of pancakes. We got active and sang ‘The Pancake Song’ and added in some cool actions. We composed our own acrostic PANCAKE poems. We learned about the way Pancake Tuesday is celebrated in other countries.
The children also got the chance to sample some delicious pancakes, courtesy of some of our parents who volunteered their time to come in and cook for them.
Six special pupils celebrated the Sacrament of Penance on Tuesday 25th February 2020 in St. Lastra’s Church, Donaghmoyne. Well done to the three girls and three boys in second class for their respectful and prayerful participation on the night. Every one of them should feel very proud of their efforts, both in preparation for and during the ceremony. The school choir sang beautifully and made the night a memorable one for the First Confession class. A massive thank you to Father Daly for celebrating this special occasion with us.
We hope that the children enjoyed this special ceremony and that they will look back with fond memories of their night.
Chinese New Year or ‘Spring Festival’ is China’s most important festival and holiday time. Chinese New Year 2020 is celebrated between 25th of January and 4th of February 2020 and celebrates the year of the Rat.
The children have been busy learning about the Chinese New Year at school. They have been learning about the history of the Chinese New Year, the traditions and how it is celebrated. They also learned about what animal year they were born in and how that animal is supposed to mean certain things about their personality. The children put all their knowledge on paper when they completed various teacher designed activities around the theme of the Chinese New Year!
To complete the lessons on the Chinese New Year, the children completed lovely dragon masks to celebrate the occasion!
This week we have been busy learning about Saint Brigid. We learned lots about her childhood and the important things she achieved throughout her life. We learned about the importance of her cross in protecting our homes from fire. We sang a song in her honour and completed beautiful pictures using various materials to decorate Saint Brigid’s Cloak.
We had a very special visitor at school today. The children were very excited to see Santa. They performed some Christmas songs and poems that they have been learning in class. Santa had a gift for every child which can be enjoyed over the holidays.
Our Christmas jumper competition was a success. Well done to all those who made an extra effort, Winners received a beautiful Christmas book – see pictures below.
On behalf of everyone here at St. Michael’s, we would like to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas. See you all in 2020.
