Zephra’s First Class Competition Winner

Hello everybody!

This week First Class were asked to write about their Favourite Day in First Class. It was so nice reading and listening to all of your entries. It reminded me of some really fun times we shared together as a class. Thank you! 🙂

This week’s winner wrote about a very special day where we had lots and lots and LOTS of fun. This person made a big effort with their writing and did an amazing job. I like how they clearly described the memory and included lots of opinions too. They also recorded themselves reading aloud.

Congratulations to….. Alex Vintu

Hello hello hello 🙂

My fabulous First Class have done great work this week – well done to you all! Next week is Get Active Week which I’m sure we’ll all really enjoy. Lots of fun activities are planned so keep an eye out on the school website for further details on Monday morning.

First Class were asked to design a Sun Safety poster this week and I received many terrific entries. Thank you to everyone who had a go and I’m very glad to see that you know how to be “sun smart” while enjoying the glorious weather 🙂

This week’s winner designed a very colourful poster which reflected the bright colours we see during Summer. They also included important tips about how to protect yourself in the sunshine.

Congratulations to Sheza Khan 🙂

Well done, Sheza!

Talk to you all again on Monday 🙂

This week First Class were busy, busy bees as they were asked to make their very own Bee Hotels. They were learning about the importance of bees and why we need to help protect them and provide special spaces for them to safely live.

It was so lovely to see everyone’s entries. First Class made a huge effort and I saw many different kinds of Bee Hotel creations. We now have many homes for bees scattered around Dublin due to everyone’s efforts. Well done!

This week’s winning entry goes to someone who went to great lengths to build and construct a large Bee Hotel. It is beautifully designed and very colourful. This person should be super proud of their Bee Hotel!

Congratulations to……….

Isn’t it fabulous?

Have a super weekend everyone!

I really loved seeing all of the Selfie Sculpture entries this week! First Class were asked to build a sculpture of themselves using personal items and to explain why they chose each item. I saw Selfie Sculptures with lego, teddies, dolls, pyjamas, books, photographs, toys, punching bags, dancing shoes, blankets, table tennis rackets and game controllers… to name a few! It was very impressive! Every sculpture was so unique to each wonderful individual.

Of course there can only be one winner. This person carefully chose and assembled items to make their own creation. What I really liked is that they included a carefully written list of the items they used and clearly explained why they chose them.

Congratulations to… Razy Ishag

Well done, Razy!
