Christmas Cheer in Nenagh CBS
Ms Glennon’s class
December was a busy and festive month in room 3. We wrote recipes for ; “The Best Christmas Ever”. Seán White won a prize for his efforts, along with Andi Durnescu, Seán Mulcahy and Mark Ryan. We learned all about Advent and made some lovely Advent Wreaths.
We created our own Christmas decorations from clay. These were hand painted and sealed ready for the boy’s Christmas trees.
In SESE we learned about Christmas traditions all around the world. Boys got to share their own traditions with the class.
We also made Christmas cards with a short message inside for people in the local nursing homes.
We learned lots of Christmas songs and recorded a festive message for our family and friends.
Finally we are all really looking forward to Santa calling next week!
Ms Sheary’s class
This month we have been very busy preparing for Christmas. We created Christmas Trees using pastel colours and made some beautiful Christmas decorations out of clay. We discussed Advent and listened to the Christmas story. We also visited the crib in St. Mary’s of the Rosary. We took part in the Fyffes Fitness challenge and had great fun running laps for the Santa Dash. Mrs. Sheary’s class wishes everyone a very happy Christmas.
Mr Smith’s class
It was a busy month again in Room 1.
In English, we wrote our own procedures. We also have been reading a nice Christmas story. The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey.
In Irish, we have been learning all about the First Christmas as gaeilge.
We learned “Rudolph an fia rua” and sung it for the school concert. We did a good job.
In art, we designed our own baubles to hang on our trees at home. We did some nice printing, making cool penguin wallpaper and we also did some nativity art.
Ms Liston’s/Ms Shanahan’s class
During December we learned and recorded the song ‘This is how you walk on”. We learned how to play Jingle Bells on the ukulele. We added up all the books we read in November and it came to a huge total of 461!! Amazing reading boys. The book fair came and all the boys stocked up on books for reading over the holidays. We finished reading our first Irish reading book. In maths we learned about time, number patterns and length. In Art for fabric and fibre we made some lovely Christmas decorations. In Geography we learned all about Tipperary and now know lots of new interesting things about our county. We learned about Cu Chulainn in history and how to be webwise in SPHE. A busy and fun month but we are ready now for our holidays. Happy Christmas everyone.
Ms Barry’s class
December has flown by for us in 4th Class. We have had some great fun.
Two Elves named Chocolate and Marshmallow have come to our classroom and they are very mischievous. Ms. Barry is delighted!! One day they even threw clay from our daffodils around the room. We are really enjoying them.
In English we finished our Procedural Writing project by making Smoothies. (Special thanks to Ms. Kelly for bringing in her blender for us to use.)
In P.E. we are doing Gymnastics and learning about balance.
In Art we have learned how to draw Gnomes and we designed our own gnomes.
In Music we are busy learning a song called ‘It’s Raining Tacos on Christmas’ for the Christmas school collaboration.
As a treat after finishing our Christmas tests we had hot chocolate with marshmallows and watched a movie. It was a lovely activity in the evening.
We are really looking forward to the Holidays and we hope that everyone has a Happy and Safe Christmas.
Ms Maher’s class
In December we learnt all about An Nollag in Gaeilge. In PE we were practising different moves in gymnastics and landing. We also did the Fyffes challenge with Mr. Buckley – we learnt all about the Bear Crawl. We made Hot Chocolate and it was delicious. We also made Rocky Road for the Panto ‘Red Riding Hood’. It was really enjoyable and the Rocky Road was yum. We read the novel ‘Care of Henry’ and it was really interesting. It was all about a young boy called Hugo who was caring for his dog Henry.
Mr Shine’s class
We have had a great December here in 5th class learning lots of gaeilge for Christmas and getting excited about Daidi na Nollaig. We have done lots of art and games this month. We also did an interesting project about the people in our communities who help us and how their volunteering can affect our lives. It was a short month but a great month.
Ms McCabe’s class
Due to the new regulations, we have to wear masks in school. It feels very weird but at least we know we are safer, and we are doing our bit for the world.
We performed ‘Electric Dreams’ in class for our parents. Artiom won pizzas from Supermacs for the class with his winning spooky picture. Kacper won the best procedure for the class. Mrs McCabe read ‘The Christmas Rat’ to the class. It was written by Avi, and was a story about a boy called Eric who saves a rat in his basement from the pest control man.
We made cards and messages to send to the old Folks Nursing Homes. They should lift their spirits and wish them well for Christmas. We also made robin pictures and every day we ran the track.
Mr Hayes’s class
December was an entertaining month for us. We learned Merry Christmas Everybody by Slade and recorded it in the G.P room for everybody to hear! We made Christmas decorations in Art. In Maths we covered Time, Speed, and distance and we also did an end of term maths test.
In English we are continuing reading our novel, Holes by Louis Sacher
Bhaineamar an taithneamh as an Geimhreadh agus an Nollaig freisin.
We would like to wish everybody a very happy and safe Christmas this year.
