As we start a new year at Hewetson, many exciting things are happening!
It was lovely to see our Junior Infants and parents on 31st August and welcome new pupils for other classes in beautiful sunshine. Despite a very dry summer, our school garden flourished and we look forward to harvesting the crop and sampling soup and various buns and cakes from different vegetables courtesy of the staff. This will link with a Harvest Assembly by Luke Hawkins on 23rd September.
Our window boxes have been replanted and will make everything brighter.
We look forward to many exciting events this term.
Senior Infants have been busy settling back into their school routines again and we also welcomed 11 new Junior Infants into our classroom.
We have been busy exploring patterns and matching in our Maths and using peg boards to create some wonderful patterns. We have also been learning all about the letter A and S, while Senior Infants have a lovely new reader “My Day in School.”
We are looking forwards to lots more learning.
First and second have settled well into the new term and we have welcomed two new pupils to our classroom. We are watching our pumpkins grow with great interest in the school garden. We had a hairy caterpillar that turned into a cocoon and look forward to it emerging as a butterfly in spring. We are going to do some GAA sport during October, and we starting music lessons with Music generation soon.
3rd and 4th welcomed 3 new pupils to their class this year. They will also continue to learn Ukulele with Diarmuid from Music Generation.
5th/6th will represent the school at An Garda Síochána’s Centenary event at Clane Garda Station on 28th September. They will continue to learn guitar with Diarmuid from Music Generation.
We are so happy in our final year of school. Here are some things we are doing this year:
We are currently learning about Ancient Greece in History, Geography, English and Art.
We are also starting our class novel The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.
In Maths we are doing the Front – end strategy. We are to start working on the walls and garden. We are also learning about Hz, volume, and vibration in science.
