2nd class have been busy every Wednesday after school for the last couple of weeks, having fun in Ms O’Dowd’s variety after school club.
They have enjoyed doing a range of fun activities. This week they were exploring colour with paint in art.
Thanks to Ms O’Dowd and Pauline for giving their time to this free after school club.
As part of Science Week 2020, 2nd class studied sound vibrations by using the following materials: a paper clip, some twine, a paper cup and a damp paper towel.
Stay Safe Lesson Catch-up
In January 2020 teachers began teaching the Stay Safe Programme at all class levels. The school closures in March meant that teachers were unable to introduce all topics of the programme to children. The Department of Education has advised all schools to complete the teaching of the programme during this school year. In St. Gabriel’s N.S. teachers from senior infants to sixth class will teach the remainder of the programme to pupils between now and Christmas.
Usually at this time of year we would be preparing to welcome all our Parents and Guardians into the school for our annual Parent Teacher Meetings. These meetings are always a positive way to involve everyone in the learning of the children of St. Gabriel’s NS.
Unfortunately this year we will have to postpone these meetings to a later date in the school year due to the Covid-19 crisis. Until then – as always – teachers will contact parents if there is anything of an urgent matter that needs to be discussed about your child’s needs. Class teachers can also be contacted by email if you have any queries about your child’s learning.
Thank you again for your continuing co-operation during these unusual times.
Wishing all the pupils and families of St. Gabriel’s NS a Happy Hallowe’en and a relaxing and safe mid-term break.
Today there were lots of spooky goings-on all around the school with witches, werewolves, dinosaurs(!) and skeletons spotted everywhere and even a gruesome magic show thrown in for good measure! Happy Hallowe’en!
