Autumn in the Junior Room

 Autumn in The Junior Room

We had a busy autumn in the Junior Room.
We began working with puppeteer Tommy Baker to develop a drama based on our class novel ‘The Gruffalo’. We used some unusual instruments, such as a dulcimer  and an ubu to provide sound effects to recreate the sounds heard in a forest. Well done especially to Lauren our mouse, Matthew Quinn our fox, Sean the snake, Corey the owl, Meadbh as Gruffalo and Ellie the narrator.

We had a visit from Dawn from the Dogs Trust to teach us how to look after dogs and greet unfamiliar dogs.

We also met Kay who talked all about Biodiversity and how we can continue to promote it in our school.

Our fancy dress day in school went down a treat where we had ghosts, ghouls and guess who people to name just a few.

After that, the Parents’ Council ran a great Bingo fundraiser in Bradley’s in Labane which was a huge success.

Our summer birthday bunnies were Erin, Sophia and Aidan.

Happy birthday to our September Star Diarmuid.

Happy Birthday to the October legends Mark F and Iarla.
