December Madness

What a fantastically festive month!!!
December Madness

Well, there goes another incredible month. What an eventful few weeks we’ve had in Monkstown. December has been a very memorable month. We kicked things off with a whole school mass to start the advent season. We had readers from our 2nd Class read out the Prayers of the Faithful to everyone at Mass. They read wonderfully well. We were also got creative and made lots of Christmas themed Art. We made Gingerbread houses and decorated Nutcrackers, we created a 3D snow scene and did lots of painting and decorating different Christmas themed pieces. The kids worked so well to create such lovely works of art. We also got a visit from our very own Elf on the Shelf, Fred. He’s been keeping an eye on all the fantastic behaviour in 2nd Class and I must say that the kids have been good as gold. Unfortunately, Fred had a fall and when we arrived into school the next day, he had raided the First Aid kit and was covered in plasters… Poor fella. We also got another great addition to our class. Our Touch screen TV arrived, and we have been doing lots of interactive lessons on this piece of equipment. It is such a valuable teaching tool, and this is being used to its fullest potential. We have such an incredible teaching environment in the school, and this has really enhanced the learning for all our 2nd Class pupils. I want to wish everyone in 2nd Class and their families a very Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone back, happy and healthy in 2023. Enjoy the well-earned break everyone. See you next year!!!
