LOOK…what’s been happening in your child’s class this Month…
                                  Montessori Room
It has been non stop learning and fun throughout the month of March in the Montessori Room! We have been learning all about the season of Spring and the changes that are taking place outside. We have also been learning about our favourite things, our feelings, our emotions and all about each others families. We have being keeping up with our sounds learning u, l, f & b and learning all the words that begin with these sounds. We have also been revising our numbers 1-10 and playing lots of number games. We had lots of fun days in March like helping to make Pancakes for pancake Tuesday. We also had a green day in which all the children and teachers made a great effort in wearing lots of green clothes and accessories and we had a wonderful parade marching around the garden. We also spent the whole previous week learning about the country we’re living in and learning various Irish words and songs. The children really enjoyed this week.  To finish off the Month we had our annual Pyjama Day. It was such a novelty getting to spend the whole day in our comfy pyjamas! Next month will be an exciting month also as we celebrate Easter with lots of fun activities including an Easter Egg Hunt in the garden! We will also begin the Month talking about those very special & important people in our lives ‘Our Mothers’ and we might even make them a special surprise for Mothers Day.

                         Afterschool Room
The afterschool children enjoyed spring painting and having some yummy pancakes on Pancake Tuesday. They celebrated St. Patricks Day making cards and having a green day party! They also enjoyed making sunflower crafts and changing into their pyjamas straight after school on pyjama day!! Next month we will  have an Easter egg hunt for the afterschool children! We will  also carry out various Arts & Crafts activities for Easter & Mothers Day.
