October 19th – 23rd

We will be making the classrooms a little bit spooky in preparation for Hallowe’en this week in The Children’s House! We are going to carve pumpkins and make Hallowe’en pictures, and as a special treat on Tuesday, we will be going to do some football training on Tuesday in the GAA pitch with one of the parents who has offered his services!

Following on from the observation days in the morning classes, we are currently holding parent teacher meetings. These are a great opportunity to see all the areas that your child is working through in the classroom, and all the skills they are developing, and also to ask any questions you may have thought about since the observation. Of course, at any time of year you are more than welcome to come in and do an observation, or to have a meeting with us if you have any concerns or questions. At this stage in the year we are also asking you to think about how you can be involved in your child’s school experience throughout the year, so if you have a particular skill or interest you would like to share with us, or if you would like to come in and read a story/do an activity with us, we will organise a time that suits for you to showcase your talents!!

Pumpkin poem:

Pumpkin pumpkin, big and round,
I’m glad you grow upon the ground.
I’m glad you don’t grow in a tree –
for then you might fall down on me!
