Chinese New Year

Rebecca’s mammy Lucy came in to 1st and 2nd class last week to teach the children about Chinese New Year.  This year it is the year of the dog so Lucy showed the children how do create a dog on red paper.  Red is a lucky colour in China.  She made dumplings and prawn crackers for the children and they were delicious.  She showed the children how to write ‘Happy New Year’ in Chinese calligraphy.  The children had made Chinese dragons to welcome Lucy to our class. It was a very enjoyable morning, thank you Lucy.

Board Game day

The children in 1st and 2nd class were delighted last week to get over 500 points on class dojo so they won a class reward.  Their reward was to bring a board game to school on Thursday.  They had great fun playing all of the different games.  Some children from 5th and 6th class helped out. It was a lovely afternoon!
