Classroom News

Our theme for the month of December was Christmas. Two of our boys helped Nora and Amy to put up the Christmas tree in the reception hall of the school. We also put up decorations on the windows and in our classroom. During this month our class paid visits to the church to visit the crib and in class we learned about Baby Jesus birth through storytime and song. During group work we  did beautiful writing and sticking exercises on our Christmas theme in their workbooks. During Art and Craft the boys did beautiful artwork, painted snowmen, Santa Claus & lots lots more. All the boys made fabulous Christmas table decorations, wooden door name plaques and amazing Christmas tree decorations. In our cookery class we made divine Christmas cookies which were a big hit with all the boys and visitors to our classroom. During this month the pupils of Lios Cúram were very busy practising Christmas songs for their Christmas Mini Concert.

This month we celebrated another of our boys birthday. We had a party in class.


For a Christmas treat we paid a visit to Little Rascals in Mallow. It was a terrible day of rain and wind but the weather didn’t dampen our trip. Both staff and pupils had amazing fun and excitement in the bouncing arena. We were all so excited with all the climbing areas and loved the big coloured slide the most. After, we all enjoyed chicken nuggets, chips and burgers. It was a mega fun day.  

Before we broke up for holidays the pupils of Lios Cúram put on a mini Christmas concert for the parents and invited guests in the O.T. Hall in Lios Cúram. We were very excited and we got dressed up in santa hats and reindeers. The boys and girls performed ‘ Santa Claus is coming to town’ and ‘Jingle Bells’  accompanied by Nora on guitar, one of our boys on the bongos and the boys from the Cherry room on percussion. Another of our boys performed the part of ‘Rudolph’. The children from ‘Sunshine space’ performed ‘When Santa got stuck up the Chimney’. It was a gigantic success all round and the children did their parents proud. After we all shared lovely refreshments.
