Junior Infants learned about Pancake Tuesday and about the ingredients needed to make delicious pancakes. They coloured in the ingredients as they watched Ms. Mahoney and Gillian flip some pancakes in the pan. Everyone enjoyed the tasty treat and look forward to going back to the kitchen again.
Last week we had a really fun art lesson. For this art lesson we had visitors! Normally our reading partners, Mr. Geaney's sixth class came to visit us to help us complete our Christmas inspired art work. We showed them how great we are at cutting and they helped us draw some of the main parts of the snowmen. These great pieces of art can be seen on our window as you pass. We had great fun!
This November in Ms. Mahoney's class, the children are learning about the Doctors' Surgery in Aistear. They are singing the song 'Ms. Polly had a Dolly' and listening to the story 'Dr. Duck'. At the role play station, they are having a great time pretending to be doctors, nurses and patients. They are assembling Mr. Potato Head's 5 senses and playing in the small world. They are making body parts and bones with playdough and constructing doctor surgeries, doctor tables and chairs with the blocks.
For the past number of weeks, we have been working with sixth class on an exciting new project. Each week, for half an hour, the pupils of sixth class come and read to us. We have been paired up with a certain sixth class boy or girl. We sit and listen to the sixth class pupil while they read a number of different and interesting books to us. We really look forward to our paired reading each week. Below are some pictures of our paired reading in action!
Our Junior Infants have their first week behind them and what a week it was!
We've captured of their first lunch and first play session on the yard.
The junior, senior and ALC classes had a fun-filled and action packed day at Lullymore Heritage park. We had lots of fun playing in the outdoor playground which had swings, slides, climbing frames, crazy golf, a zipwire and lots more! We then had a chance to explore the Funky forest indoor playcentre and the children were very excited! Many wishes were made at the fairy village and some children spotted some magical fairies in the trees. We also had the chance to visit an old cottage and see what life was like without electricity! We visited the pet farm too and saw some friendly farm animals! To end our day, we hopped on the Lullymore train to see the surrounding bogs and lakes! Great fun was had by all! Here are some pictures of our tour.
