May Madness in the Junior Classroom!

This May, the children in the Junior Classroom continue to show their talents in all areas of the school curriculum.

There’s been lots of preparation in all subject areas for the 2012 Olympics in London. The children made their own Olympic torches to mark the occasion of the Olympic torch travelling around the United Kingdom and of course making its way to Dublin and Northern Ireland!


We drew our favourite meal as we were learning about the Last Supper  in Religion. Take a look at all the delicious meals we like to eat!









In Maths we have been learning about money and we decided to make our own coin rubbings on money boxes and purses!

We also have been learning about the Wright Brothers in History and so we made our own airplanes out of recyclable materials like clothes pegs and lollipop sticks!!

In Science, we have been busy learning about living and non-living things. We read a poem about an alien in a spaceship and we drew something living and non-living from the poem!

We also went on our school tour to Hook Lighthouse at the end of May and when we came back we drew some of our best memories of our tour. Take at look at our lovely drawings below!


Congratulations to Rowan Byrne in 1st Class and Kim Lucas in Senior Infants who were the winners of our In-Class Colouring Competition of a Lighthouse Picture which was given to us to colour by the local artist, Rose Finn at Hook Lighthouse. Here are their completed pictures!








Well done to all the children on all their hard work this month!
