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.....
The boys and girls have been having so much fun in the past few weeks learning all about the hospital. They have been working as nurses and doctors, performing surgeries on their patients and taking x-rays. The children have also been busy building hospitals, ambulances and medical instruments.
It is safe to say the future of the health care system is in great hands!!
Take a look at Junior Infants A & B in action!
Junior Infants A performed the story of 'The Little Red Hen' for assembly on Friday. We had groups of pigs, ducks, cats, little red hens and narrators. The boys and girls put in lots of hard work rehearsing their lines and making masks. Everyone was very impressed and we all had loads of fun!
Junior Infants A and B created lovely Valentine's card for their loved ones on Valentine's Day.
It was a great opportunity for them to practise their handwriting skills too.
They all did a great job!
Here are some photos of Junior Infants B creating their cards.
Both classes are really enjoying learning about the building site in Aistear at the moment.
It is proving to be a very popular and enjoyable topic. As always we are constantly looking for bits and bobs for our junk art stations for Aistear so please continue to bring in anything you have!
If parents have completed the vetting process with the school please let the class teacher know that you have been fully vetted and further times for participation in Aistear can be arranged!
In the meantime here are some photos of Junior Infants B enjoying Aistear last week.
Since we have returned from the Christmas holidays the children in both classes have begun writing in their copies.
This is a big step as they are beginning to copy work down from the board all by themselves. They will try to do this a couple of times during the week.
As you can see from the two pictures of Rory's class they are working extremely hard and are really trying their best. They are working on the 3Ps of writing; pencil, paper and posture. Are they holding the pencil correctly? Are they holding their paper properly? Are the sitting the right way with both legs on the floor as they write? They are also using the hand that they do not write with to create finger spaces between their words.
As you can see from the photos they are really concentrating and working hard.
