On Friday 1st April 2022 we celebrated Autism Awareness Day. Firstly, we recapped on what we had learned last year about autism. We then learned about living with autism from the perspective of Megan, a ten year old girl from Canada whose little brother Matt has autism. We learned a lot from watching Megan go through daily life, and we have definitely taken away some brilliant ways to help make life easier for someone with autism. We also wore blue on the day to support Autism Awareness!
Thank you to all of the boys and girls for taking part.
Our infants were so excited on Tuesday 1st March 2022 as we begun our six-week cooking/baking block. Week one happened to fall on Pancake Tuesday so we decided to make some yummy pancakes! We learned all about following a recipe, and how to measure the ingredients. Our infants did an amazing job baking, and sampling, their recipe!
The past few weeks have been packed with fun, excitement and creativity in the infant classroom. The children engaged in a variety of different Christmas activities, such as learning Christmas rhymes, singing songs as Gaeilge, and learning about Christmas traditions. We also learned all about Advent and the Christmas Story.
We enjoyed completing a variety of Christmas art projects. The children made Christmas Tree decorations from clay, Santa masks and Christmas cards for their parents.
We had lots of fun rehearsing for our Christmas Concert – the infants put on an amazing show! All of the boys and girls in Junior and Senior Infants are on Santa’s good list this year and so we are now eagerly awaiting Santa’s visit… only a few more sleeps to go!
We were very lucky on Monday 13th December to have a visit from the one-and-only Santa Claus. The children got to tell Santa what they want for Christmas, and received a beautiful photo and gift. What a special start to the week!
Thank you to our Parent’s Association for making it all possible!
We had great day on 22nd October 2021 celebrating Halloween in St. Michael’s National School. The children dressed up and each class had a Halloween party. We took part in Trick-or-Treat for Temple Street and raised €170 for this very worthy cause, well done everyone!
We also held a socially-distanced fancy dress parade and fancy dress competition. Congratulations to our winners – Lucas, Calum, Calum, Anna, Saoirse, Tom, Liam and Cassie.
Well done to everyone on an amazing first term! We look forward to seeing you all in November!
We have had a very exciting week in the infant classroom!
On Wednesday 16th we were very lucky to have Donaghmoyne coaches Oisín and Michael in to teach the children tag rugby. The boys and girls had great fun and learned lots of new skills. Thank you Oisín and Michael!
On Thursday 17th we spent the morning at Donaghmoyne park. We are so lucky to have such an amazing facility right beside our school!
After our morning at the park we held our Sport’s Day. As we didn’t get the chance to hold a Sport’s Day last year, this was a first for both Junior and Senior Infants. The children had a wonderful day!
We spent plenty of time outside enjoying the sunshine!
