Beast goes to Lucy’s house!

After seeing Lucy all dressed up in her beautiful Disney princess dress, you would have been forgiven for thinking that Beast spent last weekend with the real Belle! Their weekend of fun kicked off with a play date with Mia, followed by a shopping trip for some new boots (which saw Beast playing a very fun game of hiding inside the shoes in the shoe shop!!) Shopping is hungry work, so they stopped for a hot chocolate and gingerbread man pick-me-up, before heading home for pizza! Saturday saw Beast accompanying Lucy to Disney On Ice! What a coincidence! Lots of Beasts’ friend performed in the show! After this, Lucy brought Beast outside to play, before snuggling on the couch watching ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ with Lucy’s brothers … and their scorecards! They scored each dancer, as well as Lucy’s sleepover…which of course, got 10s! Sunday saw Lucy dress up as a glamorous princess for a very fancy tea party, after visiting Marley Park, and climbing a mountain! No wonder Beast looked so happy when he returned to Scoil Carmel on Monday morning, how could he have had any better of a weekend?!

Lucy added lots of fabulous photos to Beast’s photo album, which I will photograph, and add to this post early next week! Well done and take a bow Lucy, no wonder you got top marks for your hosting skills! 🌟

Beast spends his mid-term break with the triplets!

When just one of the triplets’ names was picked out to take Beast home, the whole class, very diplomatically, decided that maybe Beast should spend the whole week in the Malone household, giving each boy their individual turn to mind him! This decided, Beast packed his diary and photo album and off he went! He had no idea what adventures lay ahead, and from the sounds of it, he had an unbelievable, action-packed week! He did everything from visiting Penneys, to trick-or-treating, to hiking up to the Hell-Fire Club, painting pumpkins, visiting Rathfarnham castle, watching movies, sipping hot chocolate, going ice skating and even going to rugby training! What a busy, brilliant week! Huge well done to each of the boys and thank you for giving Beast another adventure he will never forget! 😊

We welcomed Sam Maguire to Scoil Carmel!

Our P.E. hall was a sea of blue this afternoon as we welcomed the Sam Maguire cup! Not only did we get to meet a Senior Hurler and Footballer, but we got to meet a coach of the Dublin Ladies team too! We sang ‘Molly Malone’, and got a class photo taken with the cups! Some of our classmates already play for Ballyboden, or St. Anne’s, and this is a great start! Jean hopes to play for the Dublin Ladies team when she is older, and something tells me she just might! 😉

Some more Halloween fun!

On the day of our Halloween holidays, we worked together to carve a pumpkin! We each took a turn to scoop out some of the insides and felt the slippery seeds! We pretended we were scooping out the pumpkin’s brain! Ms. Kilboy carved the face, as this required a sharp knife! As she did this, we tasted some báirín breac … and lucky Darragh found the golden ring! It sounds like everybody had a wonderful Halloween, and well done to Mums and Dads on the very creative costumes we have been hearing about! ☺️

Our Windy Witchy Walk!

We had to be SUPER brave today, as we headed out on our Witchy walk!! There were so many seriously spooky things, like witches and zombie brides, vampires and dead pirates, ghosts and spiders, skeletons and goblins! There were giant spiderwebs, recipes for the witches cafe, and even graves!! We did our best to scare too, wearing lots of spook-tactic Halloween bits n bobs! (A huge thank you to all teachers and SNA’s involved in setting up!)

Beast has another adventure!

Sophia was the person given the job of minding Beast last weekend, and my goodness, she kept him busy! After partying at Anna’s Halloween party and decorating spooky cakes on Friday, she brought him to the Square to visit Halloween H.Q. on Saturday! She also let him accompany her to her art class, and then treated him to an ice cream! That night, he had the chance to meet Sophia’s nanny, great aunt, friend Grace and Uncle Dave! On Sunday, Beast visited Sophia’s cousins Lily and Elliot and went to see Sophia’s sister competing in a taekwando tournament! He met Sophia’s friend Eva (as well as having met Oisín) and had a lovely dinner before he collapsed into bed, exhausted, but so happy, after a fantastic, action-packed weekend! Well done and thank you for being such a wonderful host Sophia! 🌟

Funny Frankensteins!

We used a video on YouTube to draw a step by step Frankenstein! After practicing on whiteboards, we then transferred these to paper but thought you might like to see some of these initial drafts, they were too good not to share! Even though we followed exactly the same steps, each one looks completely different! Just how we like it!
