Our annual Book Fair as part of Book week will be arriving on March 5th. Children will have the opportunity to peruse the Book Fair and see if there are any books they would like to buy. If the children want to buy a book please send in the money in a sealed envelope so that it is kept safe until such time as we are visiting the Book Fair that day. The Book Fair will run until March 12th.
To celebrate a great Friendship month the Birch Class created 'compliment flowers' for each other. Everyone wrote their name and drew a picture of themselves on the petals of a flower and then passed the flower around for their classmates to write something nice about them in the remaining petals! It was so lovely to read all the kind things the class had to say about each other and everyone was very excited about taking their flowers home to show their families.
We are learning about data (collecting and handling information) in Maths. Today we took advantage of the lovely weather and went out to the carpark - here we collected information about the colours of the cars. We learned that silver is the most popular car colour among the staff!
Here at PETNS, we love reading! As part of our preparations to celebrate World Book Week, children are invited to share a photo of themselves reading a book in the strangest place they can think of! Photos can be given directly to class teachers or emailed to email@example.com. We can't wait to see your creative photos! (Winners will be announced on 7th March)
"Hi Powerstown families! Want to help our school win sports equipment or some funding for sports equipment? Powerstown ENTS is participating in Aldi's Rugby competition. If you shop in Aldi and you spend €30 or more ask for a rugby sticker. If we collect enough to fill a poster we can send it away and be in with a chance to win €50,000 or some fantastic sports equipment. The poster will be posted up outside our parents room. Children and families are welcome to bring in the stickers and put them up on this poster. Any support you can give us would be much appreciated."
