For our school tour this year, junior and senior infants visited the Playbarn and Stonebrook Pet farm. We had a great day.
First of all we headed to the playbarn in Kill. We had lots of time to play in the 3 storey soft play area. There was even an indoor soccer pitch and disco. We all left with red faces after running around for so long. We had a quick snack before heading for the farm. Take a look at our pictures from the playbarn here.
Next we left for Stonebrook Pet farm near Ballymore Eustace. There we got a tractor ride, had our lunch on the hay bales, played in the outdoor play area and visited the petting farm. In the petting farm we were able to pet, feed and hold some of the animals. Our favourites were podge and rodge the pigs, bambi the deer and the one direction bunnies-Niall, Louis, Zayn, Harry and Liam. To top things off the bus driver played 'Frozen' on DVD for us on the journey home. Ms O' Connor and the other teachers were treated to an excellent rendition of 'Let it Go'. We already can't wait for next years tour. Hope you like the pictures. It might take a while to look through them all, Ms. O' Connor got a bit snap happy with the camera trying to make sure she had one of all of us for the blog. Enjoy :)
In March, our Aistear play theme was 'The Garden Centre'. We planted fressia bulbs, cress and morning glory seeds. Our cress and morning glory seeds grew really well and our fressia bulbs will hopefully flower this summer. We also learned about what plants need to grow, the life cycle of a plant and the parts of a plant. Here are just a few pictures of our work.
We had great fun celebrating Easter in school. We made cards and clay nests filled with chicks and eggs. We enjoyed our egg hunt in the courtyard and our treats left by the Easter bunny.
We had lots of fun at our St. Patricks Day ceilí. We danced to 'Rose in the Garden and 'Walls of Limerick'
