The PTA and the pupils of Powerstown ETNS are delighted to announce that our 2nd School Art Exhibition is now on display in our school hall!
The theme of this year’s exhibition is ‘Winter Wonderland’. The artwork is now beautifully finished, professionally framed and catalogued for display in the school. As well as a great artistic event we are using the exhibition as a fundraiser to help to reduce the cost of swimming lessons for all the families in the school.
The pictures are great value at only €10 each. Framed print copies of the originals, which would make a lovely present, will be available to order during the Winter Fair this Friday 8th December.
We look forward to seeing everyone there but if you can’t make it & would like to have your child’s picture, send the money in before exhibition day and we will arrange delivery.
Art is an area that every child enjoys and the exhibition will be a big social event in the life of the school this year, so please come along, (support our fundraiser) and admire the work of all our talented children!
So the day finally arrived - we opened our Birch Class Coffee Shop!!! The children did an AMAZING job - they greeted customers (parents and school staff!); distributed menus, took orders, prepared and served food and collected dirty dishes! Everyone gave us lovely compliments and praise afterwards. Well done to everyone in Birch Class!
Today we prepared all the desserts for the Birch Class Coffee Shop!! We worked in teams in the school servery kitchen - we each made rice krispie buns, vanilla cupcakes and fresh fruit salad (it's important to have a healthy option!). The smell in the kitchen was fantastic and we are all very excited about sharing all these treats with our guests tomorrow! We also worked together to wash all the dishes and tidy up the kitchen.
Today we went to shopping to get all our supplies for the Birch Class Coffee Shop!
We loved learning about penguins in our work on the Antarctic so we decided to make some penguins from a range of mixed materials!
This week we have been finishing off our work on fractions, beginning a new topic on length and playing a run game to revise telling the time! We love maths!
