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!

The Little Crocus

On Friday March 29th Junior & Senior infants performed our drama “The Little Crocus” for our parents.

We had worked very hard preparing for the big day!

Some of us were birds, others were trees. We had some clouds and snowflakes, we had the sun, Jack & Jackie Frost were baddies.

And of course we had some beautiful butterflies and crocuses.

Everybody enjoyed themselves and to finish up we sang a Spring song “Wake Up, Rise and Shine.”

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.

Wemberly Worried

In SPHE for the last few weeks we have been talking about worry and anxiety. We read a lovely story called  “Wemberly Worried” by Kevin Henkes.

We talked a lot about our own little worries and how to help ourselves.

Finally we re-told the story in our own words and drew our own pictures and made a little book for you to watch, listen and enjoy.
