World Book Day 2019

North Pres celebrated World Book Day 2019 in style. Many of our children and teachers dressed up as characters from their favourite books. Thirty senior infant and first class parents participated in C.A.P.E.R. (Children and Parents Enjoying Reading) in the morning. Afterwards the first and fourth classes walked to Waterstones to buy a book using their World Book Day vouchers. In the afternoon the older children visited the classes of the younger children and they all sat down and read together.

February Assembly

The monthly assembly for February was held this week. There was a special award for a 6th class girl for the superb job that she did when she was a Lunchtime Pal before Christmas. Senior Infants performed a song about the animals in the jungle. Ms. Murray told the school about the upcoming Dress up day for World Book day. The Health Promoting School committee had some very exciting news for the classes about the upcoming Brunch Club where each class in the school will get a day to go to the Parent's room and enjoy some nice treats. It also will give them a chance to chat with the classmates in a relaxed setting. Ms. Whelton's 2nd class had our quote for the month reminding us to just be ourselves. The Kindness awards for the month went to children in the Junior Infant classes. Their teachers picked these children as they showed kind gestures to their classmates. Ms. Murray also called up the 20 children who missed no school during the 1st 100 days of the school year. These children will enjoy a trip bowling in the coming weeks.

Busy in Junior Infants

Junior Infants have been very busy the last few weeks. In maths they have been learning about patterns and had great fun making some of their own. They also used counters to show how to they can be used to make up different amounts. There were some very artistic pinch pots made out of clay as well.
