As part of Maths Week (12th -20th October), Mrs McGuirk’s room participated in various events associated with the theme ‘Keeping Active’ both physically and mentally. Children participated in active number rhymes with actions. We continued with our Malin to Mizen head walking challenge. We participated in number orienteering and we also completed a maths trail. We played lots of games in class too, using our interactive whiteboard and concrete materials. Thanks boys and girls for your ACTIVE participation.
In our History Lessons (Myself and My Family and Change and Continuity), we have been learning bout the changes we go through during different time in our lives. The children put in lots of effort gathering information and writing about the important milestones in their lives. They then told the class about them in the ‘This is My Life Chair’.
We had great fun speaking Irish today and having our breakfast together in Mrs. Mc Guirk’s Room. We practiced our vocabulary(fóclóir), while having some ‘Bia Blasta’.
Our children continue to focus on Health Promotion and continue to practice our Active Flag Initiative as they take part in soccer skills with Euan Treanor during September and October. Have a look at some of their activities below! Thanks to Euan for visiting our school and sharing his knowledge and expertise with us.
Welcome back everyone and a special welcome to all our new students. There has been a great buzz this week and it has been wonderful to hear all of the children’s stories from their summer holidays. We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead.
Congratulations to Junior and Senior Infants for graduating from their respective classes. Well done to each and every one of you for your dedication and commitment to your work throughout the year. Good luck to Senior Infants as they move into First Class, we will miss them terribly. Thankfully we get to hold onto the Junior Infants for another year as they move to Senior Infants and we all look forward to getting to know our new pupils at the end of August. School’s out for summer, have a really enjoyable one everyone!!
Have you ever seen such beaming smiles before??? Not unless you got an ice cream at school from the Ice Cream Van! It goes without saying from these little faces that everyone enjoyed their surprise! Thank you to the Parents Association for organising and funding this.
A small selection of the talented artists in our Infants Class as they all created masterpieces with Fabric & Fibre…some fashion designers in the making I think! In addition they brought a splash of colour to our classroom with their beautiful sun & rainbow pieces in the final weeks of school.
Congratulations once again to Junior and Senior Infants for completing their fourth and final 8 Rhyme Challenge!
