Outstanding Dictionary Stories!

Every Monday, the Red reading group from First Class come to Caitriona’s room to do work from their dictionaries. We have learned that the dictionary has lots of words in it and it can be very helpful to look up words that you don’t know or don’t know how to spell. You can have dictionaries […]

Twink is visiting…

It has been a very exciting week for some of 2nd class. We kept finding trails of glitter in the room and then one day there was a little letter in a golden envelope. It turned out Twink, one of Santa’s fairies, was visiting our school to count the children but she has gotten stuck! […]

Then we cut around the pictures really carefully. Everyone was super safe when using the scissors! We stuck the pictures onto the front of our coloured card and everyone […]

Back on yard! Yippee!

For the first time in almost three weeks, the whole school enjoyed play time outside today.
