Last week our school held our annual active week. The girls from junior Infants enjoyed a variety of activities throughout the week. Here are some photos from our active lunch, Irish dancing with Ms. Kerr, Fit Kids, our daily 10@10 and Wake Up Shake Up.
The Be Active Committee are delighted to announced we have reached our second destination The Eiffel Tour in our Tour of Europe challenge. As a school, we ran 344 laps to reach this destination.
We have now set our eyes on the BRANDENBURG GATE in Berlin, Germany. We have 990 laps to run to reach our third destination. All the girls are enjoying learning about each famous monument along the way.
Here in Senior Infants we have been working hard learning all about addition. So we decided to put our addition skills to the test during our Easter Egg Hunt. Check it out!
All the girls in Senior Infants decided to give our much loved yard a good Spring clean! They loved using aprons and gloves to help clean up.
As part of our Green Flag Travel theme this year, Junior Infants have been learning about healthier ways of travelling to school. On Monday, instead of walking or driving, the girls scooted to school and parked their scooters in the designated scooter bay in our yard. In the afternoon, Caroline from An Taisce visited our class to talk about scooter safety, how to properly fit our helmets and how to cross the road using a scooter. We then took part in a scooter workshop where we learned lots of new scooter skills. It was lots of fun!🛴
Junior Infants have been exploring the theme of the vets in Aistear. We were very excited today to visit O’Dowd’s vets. We got to see the operating room, X-Ray room, dental surgery, groomer and laboratory. We also met Bella the dog who performed lots of tricks for us. It was a wonderful day.
Today we were very lucky to have a visit from the lovely Caroline who taught us all about safety when scooting and the correct technique to use. We had so much fun!
During the month of March, we’ve been learning all about Spring in Senior Infants!
All the girls enjoyed learning about all the signs of spring – from the buds on the trees outside to the beautiful daffodils blooming around our school.
We also decided to explore Spring through our Aistear stations. We made beautiful flowers using playdough, sequenced the lifecycle of a frog at the cutting and sticking table, painted cherry blossom trees at the art table, had fun on the farm at our small world table and finally had lots of fun being florists in our flower shop. Have a look!
This month, we held our annual Lá Glas in school as part of Seachtain na Gaeilge. We wore green clothes to school and took part in a ceolchoirm in the School hall. In the afternoon, we got a special treat as Ms. Kerr visited our class to teach us some Irish dancing. ☘️
The girls from 3rd, 4th and 5th class did a fantastic job in representing Scoil Mhuire na Trócaire in the Ardee St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Well done girls! ☘️
