Welcome back to 1st and 2nd class! Everyone has settled well into school and we are delighted to be back with our friends again. It is a very special year for 2nd class in particular as they will be making their First Confession and First Holy Communion later this school year. Zumba classes have begun again this year. 1st and 2nd class love dancing and are having a lot of fun. The whole school got a delicious surprise last week when an ice cream van visited the school to celebrate 50 years of the Credit Union. We really enjoyed making personal timelines in History earlier this month, we have changed so much since we were babies. For Art, we made 3-D hot air balloons based on the book ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go!’ by Dr Seuss. We are learning how to write ‘recounts’ as part of the First Steps writing programme and our work is really improving. Literacy stations will begin later in the term, we can’t wait to get started. We have a very busy school ahead. Stay tuned for more 1st and 2nd class news!
