Line Points Treat

We got the most line points over the last two weeks; as a treat we played on the space hoppers and scooters.


Africa art in Junior Infants

Here are some examples of the work we have done as part of our Aistear topic on Africa.


Drumming in Junior Infants

We enjoyed using our drumming skills this morning. We were a great drumming band.


Buddies and Junior Infants

On Friday our buddies from 6th class worked with us. They helped us make giraffes and we talked about the different body parts and the colours we used.


Junior Infants on Safari

We’ve enjoyed different activities as part of our Aistear topic on Africa.  We’ve been on safari – buying tickets, checking the map and spotting various animals with our binoculars in the jeep and checking them off on our list. We’ve also used different materials to create our own savannahs for African animals.


Playing Games In Junior Infants

On Friday we enjoyed playing different games in class. We are learning to play independently, take turns, follow the rules, play fairly and win and lose graciously.  


Halloween in Junior Infants

On the last day of the half term we dressed up in our Halloween costumes. We enjoyed showing our costumes off to each other.


Aistear in Junior Infants

Aistear is going well in Junior Infants. At the moment our role play area is the home corner so we are very busy minding babies, cooking, ironing, hovering, washing clothes and setting the table. We are also involved in junk art, construction and small world play.


Junior Infants Making Buns

We made buns with our buddies and Mr Quinn in The Glen. Our buddies helped us put in the butter, flour and eggs. We then put the mixture in bun cases and left them to bake. Our buddies iced them for us. They were delicious. Thank you Mr Quinn and 6th Class.


Connaught Cross Country

Well done to all the children who particpated in the Connaught Cross Country in Loughrea, Galway on Saturday and to the parents who braved the weather! On a very wet day everyone ran well and should be proud of their achievements.
