Getting Ready For Easter
Spring clean up in Clonburris
Congratulations to all the boys & girls who made their confirmation this year - three of whom have siblings in our class.
Well done ..... very proud big brothers!
St Patrick's Day Celebrations! Well done to all the boys and girls for 'looking the part' on the day and for doing yourselves proud playing the tin whistle for 'an ceolchoirm'. You were super.
Many happy faces in the classroom around February 14th!
Thank you so much to all the grandparents who visited our class on February 1st. It was a very special occasion for the children - I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
For those grandparents in heaven and those unable to travel - you were also in our thoughts.
Well done to Louis for representing the class so well in the hall. We are very proud of you.
Active Flag Activities
We took part in 'Clonburris 12 Days of Fitmas' as part of our Active Flag activities before Christmas.
We are a very active class so we really enjoy our running breaks, dance breaks and exercise breaks.
We are experts now at the 'chicken dance' and flossing - just ask the boys and girls to do it at home!
Our exercises included high knees, yoga positions, squats, balancing, star jumps, running on the spot and lots more.
We will continue to do this in the new year because we know it is good for mind and body.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.............................
Well done to all the elves and fairies who were brilliant during their scene for Jack and the Beanstalk.
Thank you to the parents who had them all looking amazing in their costumes.
The photographs below capture some of the fun from the evening.
Boys and girls - your smashed it! I couldn't be more proud of each and every one of you. Well done!
Visit to Clondalkin Library
We were very lucky to be given the opportunity to visit Clondalkin library recently. The boys and girls even got to travel there by bus! They had a brilliant time.
A huge thank you to the library staff who were so welcoming. Special thanks to Michelle Byrne who brought the story of 'Going on a Bear Hunt' not just to life …… but to a whole new level! Her energy and enthusiasm were infectious. Thanks also to
Mrs. Duffy who accompanied us on the day.
Some children in the class are already library members. For those who are not, now is a great time to join and to get the children into a life-long habit of reading. You will never ever regret it!
I did not recognise anyone in my class the day we got the Halloween holidays. The boys and girls looked absolutely amazing. Huge credit to the mams and dads for going to such lengths in getting them ready.
We had several visits from maths wizards during maths week. The boys and girls looked forward to their arrival every day into Senior Infants.
Clonburris Senior Footballers- Win Their Final in Croke Park.
Huge congratulations to the Clonburris Senior Football team who recently won their final in Croke Park. A proud day for the lads, their school, their coaches and their families.
Here they are celebrating their win with Senior Infants. Abigail and Sophie have brothers on the team.
A massive thank you to Mr. Murray who has been out every single day since the start of September with the teams,
Mr. Masterson, Mr. McGovern and Mr. Kelliher.
Well done also to the Clonburris Junior Football team who were unbeaten in the League. Clonburris abú.
It is SPACE week in Clonburris
The boys and girls have been busy with their painting and writing as well as watching videos of Col. Hadfield in space. What an inspiring man!
Clonburris School celebrates 40 years in October 2018.
Mrs Duffy has been teaching in Clonburris since the school opened in 1978. The boys and girls enjoyed speaking with
Mrs. Duffy and showing her their artwork.
Art - Self Profiles - Guess who?
Art - Squirrels
We have continued with our Autumnal theme this week by painting squirrels.
Art - Autumnal Trees
We painted trees using Autumnal colours. Don't they look super?
Come on The Dubs!
The boys and girls look great in their Dublin colours and we had great fun singing 'When the Dubs go in and lift the Sam Maguire'!
