FIRST CLASS NEWS
Some of our First Class pupils pictured with their "Reading Buddies" from 5th Class. We run this programme in our school every year and it is very enjoyable and beneficial for all of the pupils involved. Thanks to 5th Class for their enthusiasm and also for the kindness they show to the younger children.
A warm welcome to Leah Austin (Transition Year Student Scoil Chonglais, Baltinglass) Leah is a past student and has returned to St Patrick's NS on work experience in our classroom every Friday until Christmas. We are really enjoying having Leah who is such a cheerful and efficient helper!

Autumn is well and truly here and time for hedgehogs to get some sleep. We have placed a cosy bed in our woodland and covered it with leaves. Maybe a little hedgehog will decide to snooze there over the winter moonths. We will keep you posted!
All the pupils in Ms Finlay’s class were delighted to deliver an important message for "Friendship Week" in their assembly presentation. They performed the Fox and the Stork Story which had a very simple message-
Some of our First Class students are pictured across on our school "Friendship Bench" also.
Ms and Mr Autumn
We had great fun working in groups of three creating Autumn fashion outfits for Ms and Mr Autumn. We used different fabrics, real leaves and beads to create our seasonal people.Have a look at our creations!
We have been learning abut Limericks which are funny, silly poems with five lines and a particular rhyming pattern. We enjoyed writing our own and reading them to the class.
There once was a silly kid,
who opened a tin with a lid,
the tuna went splat,
all over the cat,
then he ran away and hid!

There was a boy from Carnew,
He only had one shoe,
Then he lost his sock,
And he had to hop,
Sure what else could he do?

There once was a snowman named Scott,
he dodn't do well when hot,
He was having some fun,
When out came the sun,
Now our friend Scott is not!

There once was a rabbit from Rathvilly,
In winter he felt rather chilly,
So he hopped to the airport,
And jumped on a plane,
Now he has a villa in sunny Spain!
