We have been fortunate enough to have a wonderful artist work with the children this year. We are having lots of fun getting our hands dirty making "Jelly Prints" , exploring a new technique to make beautiful art. Everyone got stuck in and there was lots of laughter, discussion and planning around all of the prints. The children chose their own prints and the entire activity was child led which is even better!!🎨🎨🎨
Dancing into the Christmas holidays on the last day of term with musical chairs 🎅🎄⛄ The children have had a brilliant week in the run up to the holidays. Carol singing , a surprise visit from Santa, a class party and movie to finish it off. Happy holidays everyone, looking forward to a fun and busy new year!!!✨
There is nothing better than hands on, experimental and fun learning in school. We celebrated Science week in style experimenting with materials and change. We got kitted out in our protective gear and made slime. We added some food coloring and glitter and gave it all a mix. It was great fun seeing how materials change when mixed together 😃
Junior and Senior Infant children worked incredibly hard in their first term to earn themselves a total of 500 dojo points!!👏 For all of their efforts, they got to have a breakfast morning in school, feasting on cereal, pancakes, strawberries, bananas and raspberries 🥞🍌🍓🥞 We had lots of fun and there wasn't even a crumb left behind!!! It's hungry work going to school!!!😀
The boys and girls of Junior and Senior Infants went all out with their fancy dress costumes, very impressive. Some very frightening too 🎃 We had a great day celebrating Halloween.
On Thursday the boys and girls enjoyed some D.E.A.R time outside in the sunshine. We also enjoyed taking Aistear outdoors. We love that the days are getting warmer and we can spend more time outdoors!
Smartie the Penguin
For Internet Safety day 2021 we followed the adventures of Smartie the Penguin as he learned how to be safe on the internet. We then created our own Smarties.

This week for Art we read the story The Dot and we used it as inspiration to create our own masterpieces.
