Sant Jordi celebrations.

Hello everybody,

Last week we prepared for Sant Jordi’s Day with lots of art and craft work in all the classes. On Friday,a puppet show came to the Preschool to tell us the tale of Sant Jordi. It was very fun and after we learned vocabulary such as dragon, rose, princess and castle. The students sang lovely songs and really enjoyed the great show.

Since last week, the P3 and P4 classes have started learning “Transport” vocabulary. With the help of Captain Jack (the talking parrot puppet), I read the students a story about transport. Then I show them flashcards with the words and afterwards we play a matching game. When the students match a pair to make a picture of a car or bus for example, they then draw and colour it.The older P5 classes are starting to learn about the Universe and Solar system so we are learning through songs and videos.

Here is a video to help us learn!

Enjoy, keep up the great learning everybody.

Carnaval fun!

Hello everybody,

Last week in school we had great fun for Carnaval. During the week, all the students and teachers  listened to the King of Carnavals rules. Each day we had to do something different for example a crazy hairstyle, odd shoes, painted nose and a funny hat.

On Friday, the week finished with everybody wearing lovely costumes such as princesses, police, superheroes, pirates and even a Kinder Egg.We had some visitors from Paw Patrol in the hall and danced and sang lots. Here I have some pictures with Martas P5 class. What a fantastic day!

This week, I have helped the teachers explain about the Irish legend of the “Leprechaun” to the classes. On March 17th, we celebrate St. Patricks Day in Ireland and so next week I will post about the activities we do over the next week.

Until then, thank you for reading my post,

Judy :)

Hello everybody!!

Bath or Shower game.Giving the ducks a bath.

Hello, my name is Judy and I am a Language Assistant from Cork, Ireland. As part of my degree at the University of Limerick, I have been so lucky to have the opportunity to come and work in this fantastic school!

I am working in the Nursery and Preschool with classes P1-P5. We have great fun everyday using games, songs and activities to help learn new English vocabulary.

In the mornings, P1 and P2 classes sing songs with actions to learn the days of the week and greetings. P3 classes are learning about different toys, so I use flashcards and pictures to remember the vocabulary.

Here are some pictures of P4.a playing a game to help learn about bath time. Each student had a paper duck and took it in turn to give it either a bath or a shower. In addition to this, we also have a song to learn the parts of the body called “The Bath Song”.

In the P5 classes, each student is working on making a personal “English Book” to collect and practice new words and phrases.

Keep up the great work everybody! Please keep posted for weekly updates of what new English we are learning.
