Primary Three had their advent assembly on Friday 28th November. This will help us to prepare for the birth of Jesus at Christmas.
Primary 3 and 4 enjoyed a trip to Draperstown Library on Friday 21st November. We loved having a look around the new library and Elizabeth the librarian read us some lovely Christmas stories. We had the opportunity to read some books and to use our library cards to borrow them, we look forward to exchanging our books on our next visit.
Primary 3 and 4 had lots of fun making chocolate apples for hallowe'en. We melted the cooking chocolate, covered our apples with the chocolate and decorated them with sprinkles. They were delicious!
