On Tuesday 20th of December, 3rd Class performed the story of the birth of Jesus.
They spent the past two weeks learning their lines, learning new songs and rehearsing.
They put on a performance for the whole school and another for their parents in the afternoon. After the show, the adults and parents joined 3rd Class in Room 3 for a cup of tea and some mince pies.
The pupils really enjoyed sharing the great story of the Nativity with the other children and adults in St Edward’s NS.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all from 3rd Class & Mr. Maye.
The sixth class children in Room 12 have been busy preparing for Christmas. The following are some activities which we enjoyed;
On Wednesday 7th December we visited the Mowlam Nursing Home and sang Christmas carols for the patients. Some patients sang along with us. We enjoyed spreading the spirit of Christmas to older members of our community.
On Friday 9th December we made Christmas cookies for Golden Time. We used Christmas cookie cutters and we decorated them with coloured icing. They were delicious.
During art we made Christmas tree decorations. We made elves and angels. We used feathers, stars, cotton wool and sequins to decorate them. We are looking forward to hanging them on our Christmas trees at home.
On Monday 19th December we invited our parents to a special sixth class performance in Room 12. Our performance included a puppet show based on friendship and the dramatisation of the poem ‘The Night before Christmas’.
We would like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas.

On the 22nd of November we went to the computer library for a science workshop hosted by Dale Treadwell. It was about trees, bugs, bats and butterflies. It was very interesting. He showed us bugs in bug viewers
He also told us that bats are not blind. They have an echo sense of hearing. Everyone thought it was an excellent show.I hope he will come back again.
