Our two junior infant classes have been very busy over the past few weeks preparing for our Nativity performance. The children have learned all about the story of the very First Christmas.
They have taken on the roles of kings, shepherds, sheep, angels, innkeepers as well as the star, the donkey, Mary and Joseph. The boys and girls have learned songs and actions as part of the show.
Junior Infants enjoyed rehearsing our re-enactment of the Nativity in the classroom before preparing for filming it on our school stage. There was great excitement on the days the children had the opportunity to fit on and wear their costumes!
Although we can’t perform in front of a real audience this year, we look forward to sharing a special recording with our Junior Infant parents on Seesaw this week. Other classes in the school will also have the opportunity to watch the recording on their whiteboards before we get our Christmas holidays on Wednesday.
A special thanks to Mr. Crosbie and Mr. Flanagan for helping with costumes and the filming of our show in recent days.
On Friday the 18th of December we will be holding a free raffle for all the children in the school. The lucky name out of the hat will win this wonderful Christmas Hamper!
Christmas is a magical time of year and First Class have been enjoying all of the fun and celebrations. To help us count down to Christmas Day we made a classroom Advent Calendar. Every morning we lift a number on our Advent Calendar and complete the fun Christmas activity underneath. We sure have been busy in First Class doing lots of fun activities including playing Christmas games, listening to Christmas songs and telling Christmas jokes. There were lots of laughs and giggles coming from our classroom! Here our some of our favourite jokes:
What does a snowman travel on? An icicle!
Who delivers presents to cats at Christmas time? Santa Paws!
What is green, covered in tinsel and goes ribbit ribbit? Mistle-toad!
Thanks to all the children who came and staff who helped at the recent St Gabriel’s Christmas Art and Craft Club. We hope this video showcases the festive fun and creativity on display. Happy Christmas everyone!
