13th – 17th December

It’s our last week of school for 2021 in The Children’s House, and it’s going to be such a fun-filled, Christmassy one!! We will be doing Christmas songs with the children & lots of messy art, we will be making Reindeer food & having a Christmas party on Friday, and on Wednesday we will be having a VERY SPECIAL visitor…..HO HO HO!!!!!

We are closing for Christmas holidays on Friday 17th December, and re-opening on Tuesday 4th January; we would like to wish you all a wonderful Christmas, and every happiness for 2022 – we’re looking forward to seeing you all in the New Year and having a fantastic 6 months with your beautiful children!!

***Please note that we’re asking the children to bring in €1 each if possible, as we’re making a donation to Barnardos Ireland this Christmas***

We Wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a merry Christmas,
We wish you a merry Christmas,
We wish you a merry Christmas,
And a happy new year!
Good tidings we bring,
To you and your kin –
We wish you a merry Christmas,
And a happy new year!

6th – 10th December

Welcome to Kindness Week in The Children’s House!! We will be talking about the importance of kindness – such an important trait to encourage in people at all times! – & the importance of being kind & sharing with others, especially those who are less fortunate than ourselves. The children will be asked what being kind looks like & what it means to them, & among other activities they will be making decorations to give to someone that they care about, & playing the kindness game – giving a compliment to the person sitting beside them!

We will be asking each child to bring in €1 to school, as every year we talk about how much we have to be thankful for and then give a gift to charity, and this year we will again be making a donation to Barnardos Children’s Charity to support vulnerable children in Ireland this Christmas – thank you so much!

The Manners Song (tune: Twinkle twinkle)

We say thank you, we say please,
We don’t interrupt or tease.
We don’t argue, we don’t fuss,
We listen when our friends talk to us.
We share our toys & take our turn,
Manners are so good to learn!
