On September 23rd, 3rd Class finally got to make their First Holy Communion. It was a very intimate and prayerful occasion. The children worked very hard in the weeks running up to their special day. We, the school, Fr Meade, their families and friends were very proud of them. They all enjoyed marking this very special time in their lives.
Dare I even finish that title in the middle of November!!!!
We are so lucky to have Ms. Killeen come to the school every week to do music with us. Ms. Killeen gave each of us a note to play on the chime and we began to learn to play "Jingle Bells" using the chimes. The children played them so well for their first time!!!! Keep an eye on the website for our "Christmas Performance" which will be uploaded here!!!
In 3rd and 4th Class we have begun learning about Multiplication this week. We used cubes to visualise the sum. For example, 3 x 4 = 12. We got 3 groups of 4 cubes and saw it made 12.
P.S. It may look like we did very little maths, from the guns and towers some children made, but it was a lot of fun for everyone using the cubes to help us learn!!!
