Elf On The Shelf
I’m weak and tall,
Dressed in dark red and glossy white.
Easily seen but sometimes you don’t find me at all,
I get put in places big or small.
Last night as the smell of spaghetti loomed around,
I sat on l large globe tall and round.
It felt smooth with not a groove,
It was my only friend until a moved.
My days are flying by,
But Santa still says ‘Hi’
Tonight is my last night,
There better be something to my delight.

THE TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS
Many people dashing around
Enjoying the magical day
Rushing to do some last minute shopping
Remembering all the previous years
Yorkshire puddings and a turkey roast shared amongst the family
Christmas crackers popping around the table
Hanging baubles glisten on the tree
Ringing bells at Christmas Eve
I can’t wait to see how happy we’ll be
Twinkling lights make spirits bright
Merry people sing Christmas carols
And January is coming near
Sending letters for Santa to read.

Mrs Clause was home on a cold Christmas Night!
Mrs Clause was home on a cold Christmas Night,
She waited for her man to return from his big, long flight.
The elves served her tea and some biscuits too
Near the fire where she sat were some black, charcoal boots.
She slid them on they were a bit tight
Because they belonged to an elf named Truffles MacButterknife!
Out she went to the shop
For a turkey to put in the cooking pot
As she walked home she felt very tired
So she sang a song
To get her mind off her yawning
When she got home
She went straight to bed
And she dreamt about dinner that she would eat the next day!

The Gingerbread Man
The ginger bread man raised up in the piping hot oven,
Ready to be eaten to those who love them.
The Christmas aroma filled the air,
While Ms Clause began to prepare,
Chocolate buttons for the eyes,
A jelly tot for the nose,
A line of white icing was purposed,
To make the gingerbread man smile like he can.
Packed away into the sleigh,
To help Santa on his way!!!!
Excitement is building as we continue our preparations for our performance of the Christmas Nativity.
The whole school is involved in telling the story of Christmas. We hope you enjoy it and look forward to seeing everyone there Wednesday night at 7pm.
At this time of year breakouts of head lice can be quite common. It is very important to check hair regularly for head lice and to treat if necessary. We would ask that all long hair be tied neatly back and any break outs of head lice be communicated to the school.
Thank you to everyone who dropped bags of unwanted clothes and shoes to the school in the past week . There were over 150 large bags of clothing collected. The clothes will be collected tomorrow morning before school. Money collected goes towards paying for various resources throughout the year – new books, games for the classrooms, buses for Cumann na mBunscol etc.
A huge well done to all the children and families who supported the Shoebox Appeal for Team Hope this year. The shoeboxes were collected today by Helen Canny and will be brought to the warehouse in Ennis to be sorted and shipped.
Thank you to the children in 4th class who helped Helen load the boxes. A total of 73 boxes were collected.
We were delighted to receive the Accelerated Reader award for Top Performing School in the Republic of Ireland from the people at Renaissance Learning. Watch our video which was on display at the recent award ceremony in London.
You can also listen to the Podcast on Clare FM when the teacher and pupils were interviewed about the prize.
The class worked together to research and design a project on what they felt made Clare a unique county. They suggested and researched areas such as the Burren, the Cliffs of Moher, Biddy Early, traditional Irish music and dance, and of course Clare GAA. (more…)
