We have Started School!!

This September, we welcomed 10 Junior Infants into the Junior Classroom. They have all settled very well into “big” school!

Senior Infants have also settled in well to their new class!

During the month, the children have enjoyed getting to know each other and also  learning new things!

In Art, the children made their own hand print paper plate using paint!

September wouldn’t be the same without cheering on Kilkenny in the All Ireland Hurling Final!

The children made their own “Cat Masks” and they had great fun waving them outside the school gates at the passing traffic!

They also enjoyed working with clay in Art. Didn’t they do a great job making their own initial letters with the clay!

In English the children have been learning and revising many letters. They painted turtles using only corks and cotton buds while learning the letter “t”

As well as this they made their own Slithery Snakes using metallic colouring pencils.

The children have enjoyed getting to know each other through talk & discussion as well as drama games this month. In support of all this work in SPHE, the children coloured in their favourite superhero picture and became that superhero in our classroom display!!

Can you figure out who’s who??

In support of Literacy in our school, we visited Castlecomer Library and enjoyed a storytelling session with Ann Marie there!

The children also got to pick some books from the library to bring back to our classroom for storytime!

Finally in Music, the children have enjoyed performing lots of new songs together and have helped to create our very own “Classroom Singing Chair” which the children can sit on when singing, performing or conducting the music lesson!!

A Big Thank You to Mrs. Doyle for all her input in designing our Singing Chair!

Well done to all the children on a great month’s work 🙂
