Santa sent us a letter all the way from the north pole. He told us that he is so busy in the north pole getting ready for Christmas that he doesn't have enough time to keep an eye on all of the girls and boys of the world, so he sent a special elf to our class to make sure that we all stay on his good list. We named him Alfie. Alfie stays in our classroom everyday and watches us following all of Ms Hall's rules and be good little boys and girls. He flies back to the north pole every night and gives a report to Santa letting him know if we have been good or not. He then flies back in time for school the next morning and finds a hiding place in our classroom. When we arrive into school each morning we have to find him, but we must not touch him or his magic will disappear.
We love having Alfie in our class everyday and we are all trying our very best to stay on Santa's good list this year.
Look at our silly Mr and Mrs Clause masks. We made them out of paper, paint, pompoms and cardboard. We used the cardboard for their faces, the paint for their eyes, mouth and rosy cheeks and a shiny pom pom for his nose. We also used cotton wool and tissue paper to make their beards.
We used the masks to pretend to be silly Santa. Santa is working very hard in the north pole making all of our toys. We all hope that we are on Santa's good list.
We have been learning lots of new songs, words and phrases in Gaeilge this year in room 11. We are all getting very good at speaking Gaeilge throughout our school day.
We have learned two new songs that help us to remember the days of the week, laethanta na seachtaine, and the months, na mionna.
Enjoy listening to the videos, fis, that we made of us singing our new songs!
