Welcome back to the first All Star Attenders blog post of the new school year. For those new to the school, as you probably know, we work really hard on improving attendance here in the school every year, aiming to have children in school as much as possible. Every month classes compete against each other for best attendance, with the winning class receiving an awesome prize. We also acknowledge the great efforts of individual pupils who have perfect attendance each month in our All Star Attenders post. Teachers also reward students individually for attendance throughout the year and we run individual prizes on different months throughout the year – such as our cinema month, pencil case week and Easter egg award. Stay tuned for news of our next exciting competition…

So here are the winners for this month. The overall class winners for September with best attendance were……Ms. Wemyss 1st Class. Ms. Wemyss class chose to have a “Pizza Party” which took place on Friday. The class enjoyed Four Star Pizza and treats as well as a mini disco. If you’re in Ms. Wemyss class you can check this out on her Class Dojo. Well done to 1st Class. Great to see them win it this year after coming so close so many times last year!

Check back every month for class winners, attendance competitions and a list of our All Star Attenders. Well done to all of our attendance heroes this month whose names can be found below:

We started learning about Autumn in September, we all put on our hi-visabilty jackets and off we went for a walk around the green. The children saw the changing colours of the trees, we found conkers, acorns and many more items. The children are really enjoying learning about Autumn, we are are learning about hedgehogs, hibernation and bears this week.

For the whole month of September the girls and boys in Senior Infants were all working hard cooking and baking in our restaurant. In our role play area the children got the chance to become waiters, chefs waitresses and customers. Here are a few pictures of the students enjoying our restaurant. In our construction area the children built restaurants. In our fine motor skills area the children make cakes for our restaurant using straws. In our art section we created Gingerbread men and we read books about food in the library.

In Senior Infants, we’re very proud of our two Green Schools reps – Aaron and Joey!

Lately, we’ve been learning all about litter and the importance of keeping our environment clean. We went on a walk to see if we could find litter in our local area and members of our class have been helping Ms Ward and the Green Schools team to do litter picking. We also designed posters to encourage our school community not to litter. Here are some photos of our activities!

Here are our posters!
