First Class

Hallowe'en in First Class


Throughout the month of October, the children in First Class created fantastic pieces of Halloween art. From designing spooky spiders to constructing haunted houses, everyone enjoyed the Halloween festivities!

Autumn Art

As the leaves began to change colour and fall from the trees around us, the children in First Class thought we could try to incorporate them into our autumn art lessons. After collecting leaves of different sizes, shapes and colours, the children created pictures of autumn. They made birds out of leaves, trees out of hands and leaves out of yellow and orange paint. Everything resembles something else if you look closely!

September 2020

Our first month back is coming to an end and the children have settled back into school life really well. They have been fantastic at following the new procedures and washing their hands. This month we have spent alot of time revising in literacy and numeracy. We have also spent time talking about our emotions and how are feeling about being back at school.


1st class Advice Page

Hello everyone,

Welcome to the 1st class Advice Page. I am really looking forward to getting back to school and meeting all the boys and girls on Friday the 28th of August! Although things may be a little different this year please be assured that the children’s safety and wellbeing will be paramount. Please find below some important information that is specific to 1st class.

Entry and departure times and doors:

A new staggered drop off and collection system will be in place                whereby;

Single/only pupils will be dropped off at school from 9.20- 9.30              am.

Families of more than one school pupil will be dropped off between 9.30 and 9.40 am.

1st class will depart at 3pm each day. They will arrive and depart through the door nearest Staff parking.The adult collecting your child is required to stay in their cars unless your child requires assistance. We would strongly discourage gatherngs of parents or children outside in the morning or after school.

Break Times

1st class will have their 1st break from 11-11.15 and their 2nd break from 12-12.30. They will share their break times with Féileacháin, Junior Infants, 3rd class and 5th class. Each class will be asked to stay in their designated area of the yard.

Storage Box

You will need to purchase a large (55litre approx.) box which will hold: all books, copies, coats, lunch boxes, drink, school bag and any other items your child has been asked to bring to school.


Lunch items must be easily accessible and easy to open by the children. Children must use lunch box as a plate and not put food on the table. Children must bring enough water to do them for the day to avoid bottle tops touching taps.


Children will need their own stationery; there will be no sharing of equipment. Please refer to booklists for what is required in 1st class.

Hand Sanitise

Children are not required to bring hand sanitiser, this will be provided by the school. Parents are requested to contact the school if their child has an underlying skin allergy/ skin condition and cannot use the school hand sanitiser

Communication to teacher

Parents/Guardians can contact me through email if they have a query as face to face meetings cannot be facilitated due to COVID 19. Emails can be sent between 9.30am - 4.00pm, I will try to reply the same day however that will not always be possible. Any emails received after 4.00pm, will not be answered until the following day. Teacher email addresses will be put up on the school website at the start of the term.

I look forward to seeing all the children next week, enjoy your last few days of holidays.

Kind Regards,

Mrs. Lowther

End of Year Message


A big thank you to all the children and parents in 1st class who have worked so incredibly hard this year, especially in the last few months. I really enjoyed staying in touch with you all on the Seesaw app and I have been very impressed with all the uploads, videos and pictures you have done since the schools closed in March. I hope everyone has a super summer and I look forward to seeing you all again in September! 

Kind Regards,
