Last Thursday Walterstown NS was alive with colour as the girls and boys arrived to school in their Hallowe’en costumes! Superheros, witches, wizards, zombies, fairies and hulks were just some of the characters who we welcomed in the door!
The girls and boys had lots of fun and spent the day partaking in Hallowe’en activities, games and even an outdoor Hallowe’en disco! We all enjoyed the Hallowe’en atmosphere in the school and loved checking out each others costumes and giving our teachers a fright! Well done to everyone for making such a fantastic effort and we hope you have a spooktacular Hallowe’en!!!

The boys & girls in the Aqua Class have been learning & exploring lots of new things.
We are practicing our reading every day.
To celebrate autumn we made colourful leaf rubbings, friendly squirrels & leafy hedgehogs.
During sensory play time we played with cornflour, shaving foam, playdoh & dried foods.
We had fun with our friends walking on the track, playing in the yard & doing yoga in our classroom.
This month we made ghosts, spiders and witches. We are listening to Halloween songs & rhymes. Happy Halloween everyone!

We had the pleasure of welcoming Olympic Silver Medallist and local star Sonia O’Sullivan to Walterstown National School today. Sonia came with Trevor Cummins and did a short athletics workshop with every class in the school.
Everyone was delighted to have a Cobh legend at the school, even though we were a little starstruck! Sonia even modelled the school hat, designed by Rang 6 (more info on this coming soon!).
It was a very exciting day and everyone had fun exercising with Sonia and Trevor.
A huge thanks to them both for sharing their time and expertise with us. We hope they will visit again soon!

Zac in Orange Class planted a native Irish wild cherry tree to celebrate National Tree Day on 7th October. The theme was ‘Trees are Good Neighbours’. We will plant it in the school garden next spring.
