Junior Classroom

The Junior Infants, Senior Infants and First Class are taught by Ms. Wilson. As you can see from the walls, they love to do art and make lots of exciting things! They enjoy singing songs, playing on the computers, playing in the sand and reading.

Here Comes the Summer!

The Junior Classroom have been busy exploring many topics over the past couple of weeks in preparation for their Summer Holidays!

In Art, the children did a simple weaving activity using lollipop sticks and magic wool to create some colourful butterflies! 

We have been learning about garden birds in SESE and the children made their own colourful and imaginative birds too!

In Maths, the children enjoyed learning about money and they made their own money trees using coin rubbings!

Who said that money doesn’t grow on trees?!

In SPHE, the children enjoyed learning about their feelings and emotions. They did a simple drawing activity using different colours and lines to show how they are feeling!

In response to work covered in Music and SESE, the children made their own seahorses using paints and colours.

In History, the children drew pictures to recall their memories of their school tour to Croke Park and Viking Splash. Didn’t they do a fantastic job!

The children made their own “World’s Best Dad Trophy” to give to their fathers on Fathers’ Day this June!

Finally before the holidays, the children took part in a Class Summer Colouring Competition.

Well done Junior and Senior Infants on all your hard work before the Summer Holidays. Have a lovely Summer Break and I’ll see you all back at school on the 30th August!

Our annual Sports’ Day took place on the 15th of June. There was great fun on the day as the children took part in relays, hurdles, egg and spoon, sack and three legged races. Take a look at the action on the day!!

Congratulations to those pupils from each room who won the ‘Best Boy’ and ‘Best Girl’ on the day for great team work and participation throughout the year, as well as Nicole who was Student of the Year!

Well done also to all the pupils who participated so well and had fun on the day, they all received a medal for their participation 🙂

As part of our Health Promoting Schools initiative we enjoyed a healthy (indoor!) picnic as the weather wasn’t suitable for sitting outdoors. We all brought a healthy lunch on the day and had delicious fruit smoothies as well.

Thank you to Jackie and Olga as well as the Health Promoting Schools committee for organising such a lovely lunch! It was great to sit down and eat together.

On Thursday May 26th we all enjoyed a great day out in Dublin. We went on a Viking Splash Tour around the city and on the water in the morning.

Take a look at all the fun we had!

In the afternoon we visited Croke Park. We saw the changing rooms, corporate boxes, players lounge and went up into the stands.

Finally we visited the museum and interactive games where we were able to test our skills!

April brings showers of fun in the Junior Classroom!

Another month comes to an end and the Junior Classroom have been very busy doing lots of exciting work with their student teacher, Ms Kathy Ryan. During the month the children explored the theme of transport and made their own vehicles too!

After the Easter holidays,the children drew some pictures to give us a snapshot of the activities they did over their Easter break!

In Art, the children made their own slippery snails out of old CDs!

The children did a Church Trail in St. Mary’s Church to support work they covered on the Church in Religion.

They also made their own cross out of clay and metallic paint too!

In support of work covered on the Life Cycle of the Bee, the children made their own life cycle wheel.

They also had great fun trying on Ms. Ryan’s father’s bee suit and seeing a real honeycomb!

I think we might have some bidding beekeepers in our midst!

In English, the children revised the letter “c”  and made their own colourful crowns 🙂

The children also visited and explored the Discovery Park  to find various aspects of Spring which they have been learning about in SESE. Here are a few photos of the children on their Nature Trail!

In support of the work they covered on Spring, the children printed some Spring flowers using plastic bottles!

After a great month’s work the children enjoyed a short visit to the playground in the Discovery Park.

Well done everybody on a great month’s work! 🙂
