Wednesday 3rd of February was Grandparents Day. Second Class invited their Grandparents to visit the school. We sang the Grandparents song for them.
We asked them questions about what school was like when they were young. They had some very interesting stories to tell us. Then we showed them around our school and we spoke about what had changed.
We loved having Grandparents visit us and we took lots of photographs. We’d like to share some of these with you.
On the 28th of January 6th class brought the grandparents into our school for Grandparents Day. They all came in and they got tea and coffee with cake and biscuits. After that we showed the grandparents the interactive whiteboard. Katelyn brought up the song Blue Suede Shoes and we all sang along. Next we asked them questions on their school days. After that we showed them the P.E hall, computer library and all the class rooms. Then we went home.

On Wednesday, the 28th of January we invited all the grandparents into the school for tea, coffee and a cake. We gave them a tour of our school and we also showed them how we use our interactive whiteboard. We asked them some questions about when they went to school. We made cards and wrote poems to give to them. It was a very enjoyable time and the talk about school when they were young was very interesting. I think the grandparents really enjoyed it.
This week is Catholic Schools Week. Yesterday, we celebrated Grandparents Day. For homework last night, teacher asked us to write a poem / story / prayer / song about Grandparents. Here is some of our work.
A Prayer for Grandparents
I pray for my grandparents Jack, Bernadette, Martin and Maura.
I thank God for having such great grandparents.
I say a special prayer for my granny Bernadette who passed away last year.
She was very special to me and I miss her.
May she rest in peace. Amen
My nanny’s name is Eileen.
My Grandad’s name is Joseph.
My nanny lives in St Joseph’s Terrace.
My granddad lives in Hawaii.
I love my nanny and granddad loads,
As much as they love me.
A Prayer for My Grandad in Heaven.
To my grandad in Heaven, I really love you so,
I’m writing this prayer just to let you know
I know I never had the chance to meet you but I really wish I had
Because you are my grandparent, my lovely Grandad.
I have wonderful grandparents,
Nanny and Grandad Keaney.
They love me and I love them.
They always remember my birthdays and I try to remember theirs.
I know they’re old but you can still have fun with them.
My Granny and Grandad
My Granny and Grandad, what a funny pair!
My Grandad falls asleep on his favourite chair,
My Granny makes a shout and my Grandad wakes up and says “who’s there?”
My Granny would laugh and say “you silly man, you were snoring too loudly” and my Grandad would say “I didn’t hear a thing”. Granny would say “you were the one snoring so how could you hear”.
That’s why my Granny and Grandad are such a funny pair.
To Granny Mary
I love you Granny Mary. I love the way you hug me and I love the way you kiss me. I love the way you take care of Granny Josie but most of all I love you.
To Granddad Paul
You and my Granddad Bobby and Granddad Eugene are the best Granddad’s ever and this is for you. I love the way you take care of me. I like when you feed me and let me stay here sometimes and the way you give me money for ice cream.
I used to stroll along the path with my Granddad and go to a shop near by. We would get a can of coke, chewing gum and a cup of tea but now them days are over. He died from an accident but I’m okay. I have my parents and nannies to love me and that’s all I have to say.
Why I like Grandparents
I like Grandparents because I think they are really cool. They tell you stories from long ago. You can have lots of fun playing board games with your grandparents. If I were to talk to my grandad again I would ask him how many degrees is it over there inNigeria.
Last year my granny gave me money.
I went to see my granny in Latvia.
I had to stay with my granny in Latvia because my mum went to get a job in Ireland. Sometimes I call her on SKYPE.
MyNanis the best
She lives in theNorth West
Her house is very big
She’s got a lovely wig
But got a 0 in her driving test
To My Grandparent
You are the best grandparent in my life
You always buy me ice cream and other stuff
That’s why you’re the best
During Catholic Schools Week we celebrated St. Brigid’s Day and Grandparents Day. St.Brigid is the female patron saint of Ireland and her feast day is on the 1st of February. It is traditional to make a St. Brigid’s cross on this day. We made crosses using rushes. In the beginning they were difficult to make so we worked in pairs which made it much easier.
On Thursday 2nd February we celebrated Grandparents Day. We wrote reports about our Grandparents and why they are important to us. We made sunflowers using felt and put a photograph of our Grandparents in the centre. We have created a beautiful display in our classroom.
