Shoebox Appeal

Hi all,

We are taking part in the 'Fill a Luas' appeal for the Homeless this year. The event takes place next Thursday so I am asking the children to bring in one of the below items by next Wednesday. 


Shoe boxes
Small toys
Books
Hat
Scarf
Gloves
Chocolate/ sweets
Toiletries (no aerosols)


If anyone would like more information on the event visit https://www.ichh.ie/ichh-fill-a-luas-event/.

I have only asked the children to bring in one object each but if anyone brings in more that is okay as well. 

Thanks,
Sarah and Rachel

Nutcracker Lines!

The children should be practicing their lines at home this week. Read it with them and encourage them to be loud, energetic and dramatic! 

The children with long amounts of narrating (e.g. openers) will be allowed the have their lines on a card if they are struggling to remember it all. 

Thanks!

Costumes for The Nutcracker

Hi all,

The children have all been given their parts and know what their character is for the winter show. All narrators will also have a character - either a mouse, fairy or soldier.

If any parents have toy swords, fairy wings or a crown if you could send them in that'd be great!

Here's what were looking for for each character:

Mice:
Wear all grey
If anyone has mouse ears send them in but don't buy any because we might make them ourselves so they are uniform. 

Soldiers:
Wear all black
Any toy swords send them in
We will be making the hats

Fairies:
A tulle skirt (any bright colour)
White t-shirt
Fairy wings
Poms/ dolly shoes

Mam:
An apron

Dad:
shirt and tie with jeans/ trousers

Godfather:
shirt and tie
black jeans/ trousers
we will provide a cape and hat

Clara and Fritz:
Wear pj's - ideally with a dressing gown and slippers

Nutcracker:
black trousers
we will be making the top and hat

Mouse Queen/ King:
Wear all grey
We will make some sort of grey cape
Crown if you have one

The children don't need …

Tin Whistle - Sarah's Class / Rachel's Class

Image
Hi all,

Both classes have brought their tin whistle's home today to practice songs using the notes B A and G.

Here's an explanation for the note values if any child is confused. We've been looking at them in class so they should know them quite well.


Here's the Tin Whistle fingering as well if any child is stuck on it. We have only doing B A and G so don't worry about the other notes.

If you could allow your child to practice at least two of the songs during the week that would be great.

Thanks,
Sarah & Rachel
