Ms. Harrington's Class love Shared Reading with the Secondary school leaders.
"I really like reading the cool books with the girls from St Patrick’s secondary school. The girls are really friendly and helpful. They bring us books for us from the library. Some of the books are about monsters and others are about cats and dogs. My favourite book I’ve read so far is called Crocodile in the Swamp. Shared reading is a fun way to practise reading. I like listening to the exciting stories and then reading my book to my partner".

One of our Science Trails-
Scientists aren't afraid to get stuck in!!!
In 2nd class this week we were doing Communion art and we were making little angels. An artist named Isabella came to help us make them. We made them out of wood. We got paint and glue and made them.
They were lovely. We got super glue and we had to glue them together and painted them, and then we dried them. Then we made the hair and we made a veil, we painted them both gold. We got hair dryers to dry. We got cement and dried them and we made them into mosaics.
We also stuck the hair together and then we got string and all the pieces. We tied them and afterwards brought it home. You can put them on the Christmas tree as a decoration or you can hang them on anything like a hanger or a hook on the wall.
We brought a big blue board and two teachers wrapped it in gold paper. Their names are Ms. R O' Connor and Ms. Butler and they put the angels on the board and a piece of paper with decorated holy bread in the middle and a chalice with strips of gold over it.

SECOND CLASS COMMUNION
Hi my name is Luke Byrne and now I am going to tell you how we're practicing for our First Holy Communion.
In second class we are practising for our Holy Communion. Both second classes went to the church to sing our hymns and which are This is the day, Gloria, Alleluia, Holy Holy Holy, Ave Maria, Eat this bread, The Clouds veil and Close to you. All are lovely hymns. There are two priests up by the altar, one on the left and one on the right. We’ve been practising a lot in our classroom and in the church for our Holy Communion.
Our communion will be on the 7th of May and everyone is welcome to come.
