St Peter’s Post #12


Welcome to another edition of the St Peter’s Post. January seemed like a long month – full of activities and lots of work! Just a reminder that parent-teacher meetings take place next week – contact your child’s teacher if you haven’t received a time yet (it could be in the bottom of the schoolbag too!)

The main headlines this week are:

  • We’ve all been busy working on our Write-A-Book projects. 2nd class published some of their stories using Storybird this week. You can read them here.
  • 5th class recorded a podcast all about their progress. Listen to it here.
  • 6th class were making their covers this week:
  • 3rd class showed us all some of their fantastic displays this week. They’ve been learning all about the Egyptians.
  • Our ‘Wednesday for Parents’ this week was all about drawing activities for home – might be particularly useful over the weekend when all the matches are called off because of the storm!
  • 3rd class also made a brilliant display of the Trojan Horse. See it here.
  • Ms Mitchell’s class made a poem about time this week. Read it here!
  • Check out 3rd class’s excellent self-portraits here!
  • 2nd class did some beautiful weaving last week. Check out their work here.
  • We celebrated comments on the blog. Check out the feel-good factor here!
  • It’s St. Brigid’s Day tomorrow – watch our vine showing you how to make St Brigid’s Crosses here.

In other news this week:

  • We had a great assembly on Monday. Ms Whyte praised different classes for their work, their behaviour and their effort. Well done everyone!
  • Congratulations to Ian from 6th class who won the Spelling Bee on Friday afternoon – post to follow on Monday
  • Ms Mitchell’s class made pizzas this week. The smell of them had everyone’s mouth watering:
  • Second class continued their work on crying in Roots of Empathy this week:
  • We learned about Irish wolfhounds. We learned about different breeds of dogs and on another day, we studied the story of Setanta.
  • Happy Chinese New Year to all our students, especially to Jack from 4th class and his family!

As always, you can catch up on all previous editions of the St Peter’s Post here.
