Room 14 have been busy designing and making Christmas jumpers for the past few weeks and yesterday they put on a splendid Christmas jumper fashion show for the whole school. As an extra treat, they performed the song 'Let It Go' from the movie 'Frozen' and they sang very sweetly. (So did everyone who joined in!) Later in the day they did a special show for their invited friends and family and they serenaded them with fantastic tin whistle performances of 'Freres Jacques' and 'Silent Night'. The girls had great fun during the whole process and as their teacher, I would like to thank them for all their hard work! You should be very proud of yourselves, girls! Well done!
Here's what the girls thought themselves!
The jumper show was great. We had loads of fun and the audience loved it. It is a memory we will never forget.
All the jumpers were very creative and a lot of work was put into making them. There were lots of different ideas from snowmen to presents to stockings to winter wonderlands and much, much more .We sang a song from the hit movie 'Frozen.' The audience loved it and they sang along.
Our parents also came in for the show. For them we did Freres Jacques and Silent Night on the tin whistle. Our parents really enjoyed the show. They thought it was very organised and they were also very proud of us. As it is our last we want to make a lot of different memories and this is definitely one of them. We also want to thank Ms Ryan for helping us with the jumper show we would not be able to do it without her.

Sophia from Rm 12 and Emily from Rm 15 have been busy writing acrostic poems. In an acrostic poem, the first letter of each line spells out the subject of the poem. The girls wrote poems using the word "Jingle". You can read their poems here.
Jingle by Sophia Rm 12
Nollaig shona duit,
Goose on the table,
Lights light up,
Everyone goes asleep.
Jingle by Emily Rm 15
Joyful with trifle,
In with soft pudding,
New Years around the corner,
Getting banoffee all hours,
Eating all our gingerbread men.
Ms Sheridan's class stirred up the spice this festive season with our Sugar and Spice biscuits. We weighed out our ingredients, mixed them all together and, after a 2 hour wait in the fridge, we rolled out our dough. We then cut out some Christmas shapes and baked our delicious biscuits. When they had cooled down, we decorated them with sugar and water icing and topped them off with little silver balls. Gorgeous!
On Thursday 11th December the children in Room 10 put on a fantastic Christmas show for their families. The girls played Jingle Bells on the tin whistle, recited some wonderful Christmas poetry (An Sneachta and Twas the Night Before Christmas) and sang some beautiful songs (The Gift, Little Jesus, A Christmas Wish and Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer). Well done girls, you certainly put everyone in the Christmas mood!
Here are a few photos and videos of the show..
