Buddies

On Friday our ‘buddies’ from 6th class came to work with us for the first time. We practised our colouring, cutting and sticking skills.


Junior Infants working hard.

Some colouring, cutting and sticking work based on the story Peace At Last. We worked really well, didn’t need much help and didn’t get too much glue on the tables! Miss Wetherald was very happy with our work.


Junior Infants visit the library

On Wednesday we visited the school library and enjoyed looking at a selection of books. We will soon be able to borrow books to read at home.


Room on the Broom

Junior and Senior Infants went to the Hawks Well Theatre on Mon March 27th to see Room on the Broom. Afterwards they went to Kevinsfort playground for lunch and play time! The children loved Room on the Broom and were very lucky to get such a nice sunny day at the park!

An Nollaig

The children in 4th Class have been doing a drama ‘as Gaeilge’ portraying the story of the first Christmas. 2nd and 3rd Classes came to watch them act it out. Well done to all! In Art the children also drew and painted the Nativity Scene. They turned out beautifully!


Sewing

The children started sewing in 4th Class. First they learned how to ‘backstitch’. Once they had all mastered that skill, they could start on their art piece. They traced a hand print from either their grandparents or parents. They then drew that hand print onto hessian material. They threaded their needles and started to back-stitch the outline of the hand onto the material. Afterwards they
