Maybe by Chris Haughton
Ms Kelly’s Junior Infants read and listened to the wonderful picture book, Maybe by Chris Haughton.
The children really enjoyed the story and even drew their own interpretation of the illustrations afterwards.
The lucky children even had the story read to them again by some of their older reading buddies!
Well done Junior Infants!
We were very lukcy to get Olympic Swimmer Darragh Greene to visit our school recently.
The boys and girls loved listening to his stories about his training, and the Olympics. We thank Darragh for taking the time out to visit our school.
On Friday the 7th of May we celebrated Intercultural Day in St. Laurence’s National School. The children and teachers dressed to represent their cultural background.
Some classes enjoyed a world music dance party, other classes paraded around the school waving the flag of their country, whilst some classes made food associated with different countries!
The Junior Infant classes were busy learning some songs in different languages. We learned about inclusivity and embracing difference.
We are all so proud of the diversity in our school! Well done to everyone for their wonderful efforts.
On Wednesday May 4th, Ms O’Callaghan’s 3rd class and Ms Faughnan’s 3rd class both welcomed Irish author, Natasha Mac a’Bháird to St. Laurence’s N.S.
Both classes enjoyed a very entertaining and enlightening morning with Natasha. The children were very curious to learn about the life of an author and there were plenty of interesting questions for Natasha in both classes!
Natasha read from her novel Shay Given (Great Irish Sports Stars) and she showed the children some video clips of our former Irish goalkeeper in action.
In preparation for the visit, the children from 3rd class wrote a piece about their own favourite Irish Sports Star and shared this with Natasha.
For more information on Natasha Mac a’Bháird, please visit the O’Brien Press website at www.obrien.ie or visit our local library in Baldoyle.
