The Enormous Crocodile

This week we read The Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl. On Friday afternoon we made stretchy crocodiles with our buddies from 6th Class.


Maths Games in Junior Infants

Other Countries by Second Class

We studied different countries. We learned all about India and the Taj Mahal. We dressed up in Indian costumes and did projects on Indian culture. We also learned about other famous world landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben and the Great Wall of China. Here we are in costumes and working on our projects.
