We made these beautiful 3-D angels. First we coloured in the angels. Then we cut them out. We painted an empty toilet roll and when it was dry teacher stapled our angels to the toilet rolls so that they would stand up by themselves. We added a doiley which looks just like a beautiful snowflake.

A Theatre company came to visit our school today and performed Pinocchio. It was terrific and we had plenty of opportunities to participate. The costumes were very colourful and we loved singing along to the YMCA song and to Row, Row, Row your boat. There were lots of interesting characters also and we all loved Pinocchio!

Adrienne also spoke about healthy eating and how we all should be eating at least five portions of fruit and vegetables per day. Sweets and sweet things are ok for treats now and again but we shouldn't be eating them too often and certainly not every day.
Adrienne also shared with us ways in which she and her family try to stay healthy.They eat healthy foods and regularly cycle together to school, to the park and to town. They also walk a lot together and chat while they walk which is lovely. If it is raining they have pull ups to help keep them dry. Some of the other children in our class also cycle regularly and lots of us play sports such as hurling and football and some go to Ballet and Gymnastics so overall we are a very fit bunch!!
Adrienne left us some lovely activities to do before she left and some booklets for our parents and then we all waved her goodbye as she cycled off on her bicycle. Thank you so much Adrienne for coming to talk to us. We really enjoyed your visit and learned a lot.
