Junior Infants at a céilí

We went to a céilí on Friday with senior infants, first class, fifth class and sixth class. We danced with fifth and sixth class. First we did shoe the donkey then the Siege of Ennis. We had great fun.


Giraffes and Elmer in Junior Infants

As part of our Aistear topic we read the story of Elmer and made our own Elmers. We also made giraffes. We had to do a lot of cutting, sticking and colouring. We think they look great.  


On safari in Junior Infants

Our recent Aistear topic was safari. We had different roles – the driver, the assistant/guide and the customers. We had to buy tickets, check in with the driver, listen to the guide, use the binoculars to find the animals and tick them off our list. The driver and guide had to sell the tickets, follow the map and help the customers find the animals.

Granparents visit Junior Infants

On Friday we held Grandparents Day. We went to mass first then some of the grandparents came in to school to visit the classrooms. In Junior Infants we showed our grandparents our art work and classroom. It was lovely to have so many visitors.


Junior Infants Voting

Sixth Class held a mock election for the whole school ahead of the general election on Saturday. We went to the hall to vote – we had to give in our polling cards, collect our ballot papers and pick our top 5 candidates.


Tasting in Junior Infants

As part of our Aistear topic on shopping we tasted a variety of fruit and vegetables – sugar snap peas, red pepper, grapefruit, kiwi, pineapple and mango. Some children were more reluctant than others but everyone who was in on the different days tried the food on offer that day.


Santa in Junior Infants

Santa has come to Junior Infants.  We used different materials to make our Santas – paint, glue, cotton wool and crepe paper.


Penguins in Junior Infants

We made penguins in Junior Infants. We coloured our shapes in then cut them out and finally glued them together.


The Opticians in Junior Infants

We have had great fun in our opticians – making appointments, testing our eyes and of course trying on glasses. We also had a visit from Nuala an optomotrist who talked to us about looking after our eyes and all the different tests she does on eyes.


Maths Games in Junior Infants

Sixth class came and showed us how to play some maths games so that we can now play them on our own.
