The Month Of Mary and Birthdays In First Class

May - the Month of Mary, Birthdays, Our School Tour and Sports Day.

As we celebrated May,the month of Mary,we also celebrated the birthdays of George, Victoria and Michael. We had lots of fun watching them doing the birthday jumps, singing ‘Happy Birthday’and enjoying the delicious cupcakes their kind parents sent to us at school.

May was a busy month, getting ready to finish up another year of great learning. First Class enjoyed paper-weaving. They also made and painted small clay pots.

Along with Fifth class, the girls and boys of First Class hopped on the bus and headed off to the Dublin mountains to spend a lovely sunny day in the Pine Forest Art Centre. Katie, who runs the centre said that everyone taking part in the school tour was as good as gold. She also said that we were great ambassadors for our school.

In other news, Ranav learnt how to juggle three tennis balls using just one hand. Julius showed us how to fly a paper airplane from the field over and into the Astro pitch.

The day before the end of the school year, First Class headed outside for an ice cream party. They also received their end of year certificates for working so hard in First Class.

We ended the school year with Sports Day. All the parents were invited.To begin, all pupils stood in their House Team circle. Mr Flood then led the House Team parade around the field. After that, the races began. First Class had two races to take part in - the running and sack races. When they were completed, Mrs Farrell met the class at the podium where everyone in First Class received a well-deserved medal.

After all that exercise, the boys and girls were all set for a Teddy’s ice cream. What a nice end to sports day.

Summer holidays have come at last. It’s time for the boys and girls to head off to the sunshine and recharge their batteries in preparation for another year of fun and friendships.
Happy summer everyone!
