A lovely first week back

We had a lovely first week back after the winter holidays. Everyone was really happy to see their friends.  We all drew pictures about the different things we did during the holidays and shared our news with each other and the class. On Thursday we were very lucky to have Niall De Burca, a storyteller, come […]

Making the Gruffalo’s Child

It was a really busy week this week, with visits to the Winter Fair, the Gaeilge assembly, and building a class Gruffalo! This week in our Aistear time we read the book ‘The Gruffalo’s Child’ by Julia Donaldson. Everyone really liked the super book and we enjoyed discussing the different things that happen at the […]

The Great Explorer

We built igloos and ice castles. We designed outfits for the Winter and as well as that we tried out a very cool […]

This Week In Junior Infants.

A Week in the Woodlands

This week in Junior Infants we had a fantastic week exploring and learning all about the Autumn woodlands! We discovered that the leaves on trees turn all sorts of colours like red, and brown and gold.  This is because the tree is taking back important energy from the leaves as it heads into the cold […]

Learning About the Senses in Junior Infants

Junior Infants were again working really hard this week and we have been amazed at how much progress everyone has made settling in and getting used to the new school environment. Its really great to have seen how independent the Junior Infants have become, lining up and walking into class all on their own! Well […]
