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.”

Look at our photos.


St Patrick’s Day

Junior & Senior infants enjoyed the preparations for St. Patrick’s Day! We got our faces painted and some of us formed a band.

Have a look at our pictures.


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.




Zumba Dance

We have begun a 10 week Zumba dance course with our wonderful SNA Nico!

Its a super way to begin our Fridays. Every class takes part and all enjoy it!

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.

Christmas Child Shoebox Collection

As we do each year we ask the pupils to think of those that may not be as fortunate as ourselves and encourage them to support the Christmas Child Shoebox initiative – and we are delighted to say that there was a great response. The boxes were collected form the school after the min-term break, here are photos’ of some of our contribution to the overall effort. We wish to express our thanks to everyone.


Autumn Activities in Junior & Senior Infants

Autumn is an exciting time.

We love the wonderful autumn colours and jumping in the crunchy autumn leaves. We learned some autumn rhymes and sang a great song called “Autumn Leaves are Falling Down.”

We talked a lot about the animals in autumn – Sammy Squirrel and Harry Hedgehog. We learned a song about Harry’s preparation for his long winter sleep.

We also sang a song called “Hibernation” and we learned all about the different animals who enjoy the big long sleep.

We made our own autumn landscape and made some little hedgehogs to sleep in it.

We also decorated our big tree with autumn leaves and then we made some hedgehops and squirrels to live in it.

Look at our pictures!
