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 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.


Junior Infants and their Budddies

We also told them the story from our reading books. We really enjoyed working with our buddies.

After our walk on Thursday our buddies came back to class with us. We drew a picture of them and they drew a picture of us.


Junior Infants and Buddies

On Thursday we went for a walk on the track around the Gaelic pitch with our Buddies in 6th class and the children from the Glen. We had a great time chatting to our buddies as we walked and had to find out their name and favourite colour. We wore our high vis vests.
