5 star fun

We also achieved our 5 class stars and got to go to Cara Street Park and even got ice-cream from Matthew’s on our way home! A big thank you to Adam’s dad for being so kind!

Maith sibh Junior Infants! Well done for working so hard- Keep it up!

Spring has sprung!

A big thank you to Rhea and her grandmother Maura for the beautiful flowers for our sacred space! We love them!

Junior Infants have been making the most of the good weather. We did our Aistear stations outside in the new sensory area built by our caretaker Ciarán, playing our cluichí Gaeilge (Irish Games) and reading stories in the sunshine!

We also had great fun in the classroom making jewellery holders for mother’s day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful mums! 🙂

Seachtain na Gaeilge:

Bhain muid an-taitneamh as Seachtain na Gaeilge. Rinneamar yoga le múinteoir Orla, cluichí sa chlós agus d’fhoghlaim muid damsha Gaelic sa seomra ranga. Ar an Mháirt, bhí tóraíocht taisce ar siúl ar fud na scoile. Bhí an spórt againn.

We really enjoyed Seachtain na gaeilge. We did yoga with Múinteoir Orla, games in the yard and even learned some Irish dancing in the classroom. On Tuesday, Múinteoir Orla organised a trasure hunt for us around the school. We had super fun!

Go raibh míle maith agat Múinteoir Orla! Bhí gach rud go híontach!

Look at our spring writing….
