To celebrate the end of Junior Infants both classes had a teddy bears' picnic on Thursday. As it was an extremely hot day we decided to have it on a shady section of the yard rather than on the grass.
Everybody brought their teddy bear to school and everyone brought some yummy food to eat for their picnic. We all really enjoyed and it was a lovely way to finish off the year.
This is the last blog post for the 2017-2018 school year. The current blog will remain as it is until the week before we return to school. After that it will be reset for the incoming Junior Infant classes so if you would like to download any photographs from the blog you will have time over the summer if you wish.
Once again, thank you all so much for a fun filled, happy and memorable year. Rory and Niamh will never forget Junior Infants A and B 2017/2018.
Have a wonderful summer!
We had the most amazing visitor to the class on Friday. Princess Belle from Beauty and the Beast came to see us. We found a letter from her in our classroom when we came to school. The letter asked us to look after her magic rose and that she would come to the school later that day to collect it.
When she came she spoke with us and answered all of our questions. She then read us a brilliant story about her friend Rapunzel. It was really magical! Before she left she gave us our very own Chip cup for the class so that we will remember her. We are so glad that she came to visit. Thank you Princess Belle!
Junior Infants had one of the best days of the year today because we went to Rumley's Farm on school tour. We had a fantastic time and we were very lucky to have had such great weather too.
We went on tractor rides, went to the petting area, played in the playground, fed the pigs and played crazy golf. It was fantastic! We hope you like the photos of our very special day!
Over the past number of weeks the children have been learning about the Airport in Aistear. They have been constructing runways, making passports and pretending to fly on an airplane.
They are all really enjoying it. Here are some photos of Junior Infants B enjoying Aistear over the past few weeks.
Over the past number of weeks we have been doing the theme Fairy Tales in Aistear. It has been hugely popular. We have been partaking in lots of activities relating to Fairy Tales in the classroom. In Junk Art we have been building carriages to take Cinderella to the ball. In Construction we have been building castles and Humpty Dumpty's wall. Some of us decided to make Aladdin's flying carpet. We have also really enjoyed playing with the puppets in the role-play and small world areas.
We hope you like the photos!
A reminder that our fantastic PA are organising a clothes collection this week. The clothing collection takes place on Tuesday 24th. Clothing can be left at the outdoor classroom from the morning drop off until 2.30. All of the money raised goes towards getting more resources for the school so it is an extremely worthy cause!
Junior Infants have been really enjoying taking part in gymnastics classes for PE over the past number of weeks. They have been partaking in the classes every Wednesday during school time. Here are some photos of Junior Infants B having some really great fun!
Junior Infants A and B were recently visited by Dr Chloe and Dr Susan. They told us all about their work as doctors in the hospital.
Everybody brought their teddy to see the doctors. They were X rayed and they were given medicine. The children were all shown how to stitch a wound too. The children were able to ask the doctors questions about their work.
Thank you so much Dr Chloe and Dr Susan for coming to visit us!
Recently Junior Infants B did their assembly for the whole school. They performed two songs; 'Blowin in the Wind' and 'Que Sera Sera'. They also spoke about learning about Martin Luther King in class. They all sang and performed wonderfully!
Junior Infants A & B had so much fun celebrating World Book Day. The boys and girls looked fantastic dressed up as their favourite characters from different books. We had loads of fun talking about our favourite stories and taking some time to read.
Take a look at our fantastic costumes.....
