Seachtain na Gaeilge i Junior Infants

This week in junior infants we have been really busy. We love using Gaeilge in school and were very excited to have a whole week celebrating Ireland and speaking as Gaeilge. Today we went to the Céilí mór where we did our Irish dancing. Yesterday we performed at the seachtain na Gaeilge concert, it was […]

Seachtain na Gaeilge in Rang a Sé

Bhaineamar an sult as Seachtain na Gaeilge sa Rang Marie agus Rang Sue. Bhíomar ag imirt cluichí Gaeilge, ag canadh agus ag damhsa le chéile agus chaitheamar a lán t-am le linn na seachtaine ag cleachtadh ár gcuid Gaeilge le chéile.  Seachtain iontach a bhí againn. Féach ar na griangraif agus bain taitneamh as!

Healthy Eating Visitor and Céilí preparation in Rang a Sé

Before the Beast from the East visited Kildare, we were lucky enough to have Shayne’s Mum Julie visit us to celebrate NETNS Healthy Eating Week. Julie shared with us a fun and healthy way to cook chicken, vegetables and potatoes in her “home made Spice Bag” recipe. She even made up enough of her creation […]

A Class of Paleontologists

We’ve had a super week in Junior Infants exploring the world of dinosaurs! We asked questions about them such as; ‘Why did they come to Earth?’ and ‘Where are the dinosaurs now?’. We looked at different types of dinosaur and explored the differences between carnivores and herbivores. We talked about the important job of paleontologists […]

Senior Infants in Space

Senior infants finished off the topic of Space. Aistear was full of hands on activities with shadow experiments, solar system artwork, playdoh work, making straw rockets and categorising day and night activities in their groups. Senior infants tested their straw rockets out around the classroom and had lots of fun! They also created some amazing […]

Hearts and smiles from Rang a Sé

As a follow up to last week’s post on clay hearts, here are the finished products. There were unfortunately,  some casualties on the way leading to some “broken hearts” but everyone still has a smile and want to wish you all a Happy St Valentine’s and a happy midterm. More from Marie’s class next week

Short Week in Junior Infants

This week we had a short and sweet week in junior infants. We practiced our writing in phonics and adding in maths. In Aistear we made imaginative pictures of ourselves as paleontologists, princess’, pokemon and much more. Enjoy the mid-term junior infants.

Rang a Sé exploring hearts in clay

Temperature and Weather

We have been using a thermometer to record the temperature each day. We noticed it has dropped from 8’C last week to 1’C this week. We’ve been watching the weather forecast and recording our own weather record each day. We’ve even been acting out presenting the weather forecast during Aistear. We’re hoping the temperature goes […]
