The Junior and Senior Infant class had a great time recently when a Lego workshop came to our school. They had to design and make objects that might be found in a playground. They were very creative.
We held a concert for Seachtaine Na Gaeilge to celebrate the raising of the Water Safety Flag in our school. The pupils performed excellently with songs, music and drama as Gaeilge.
We dressed up for World Book Day in March. The children and the staff dressed up as characters from our favourite stories.
We had a wonderful time learning about the farm. We dressed up as farmers and animals. We fed the farm animals. We created a class farm collage as a team. We learnt about the parts of a cow and what the cow gives us and even wrote a silly poem about them. Some of us got the opportunity to milk the cow in the drama area. We discovered the life cycle of the chicken and watched a video of chicks hatching. We had a sensory farm and pond. In the language station we learnt about the concepts of “before and after”. The children learnt and used lots of language carrying out these various tasks.
Using pegboards in our maths we were discovering different arrays of 5. Some children made the letter L. Others made towers to represent 5.
