Junior Tour

On Friday 21st June Junior & Senior Infants & 1st class were very excited. We were going on our school tour! We went all the way to Turoe Pet Farm. We played on bouncy castles, in bale pools, we met fluffy rabbits and saw lots of chickens and doves. We went on a lovely walk around the farm and we fed goats, lambs, llamas, alpacas, ponies and cows along the way. We also checked for the evil troll under the bridge! We saw lots of fairy doors and even a fairy playground. We all had a super day and when we got back to the school we had ice lollies!

Pancake Tuesday

Tuesday was a very busy day in the infant classroom. We made pancakes!

We had listened to a story about a very bold pancake which ran away. We had also learned a rhyme about pancakes, so we knew what the ingredients were.

Then we got to work!

We cracked eggs, put in the flour, mixed in the milk until we had a lovely batter.

Then the frying started – we had lemon/sugar or syrup or chocolate on our pancakes and we all agreed that they were delicious. Have a look at our photos.
