October Nature Walk


The boys and girls in Mrs Gavin's Junior Infant Class had their first nature walk this morning. Wrapped up nice and warm, the children started their walk by crossing the path that leads to St Paul's Church. They gathered any leaves they could find in the many shades of Autumn colour, seeds, berries or acorns and not forgetting the must have 'helicopter' seeds from the Sycamore tree! Soon it was time to cross the main road in search of conkers from the Horse Chestnut tree and there were plenty to find. With bags full of autumnal treasure, the children returned to class to fill out a 'Nature Walk' worksheet and create their own 'Nature Table' that I'm sure they will add to over the coming days and weeks.

Cleaning up can be Fun!

 

I think we can all agree that cleaning up isn't top of our list of favourite things to do! The boys and girls in Mrs Gavin's Junior Infant Class have turned this job into a fun task by singing the 'Clean Up Robot' song as they tidy up. Today, during their art lesson, the children painted their own clean up robot and had great fun doing so.

Settling in Well

 

Our new junior infant students have just finished their first full week in school and are settling into their new surroundings very well! By now, many are walking to class on their own in the mornings, eager to start the day!  

The school playground can be quite daunting to these new students and in an attempt to help them settle in, our sixth class students spent some time with them today and taught them some of the old playground games that have been keeping children active and healthy for decades. This will become a weekly event and I have no doubt that both the junior infants and the sixth class pupils will be looking forward to it each week.

Walk a Mile with a Smile... and a Buddy!

 

Our sixth class students like nothing better than to walk a mile with a smile! Today they did just that and they even brought a 'Buddy' from senior infants with them!

Tug of War


We were very happy to once again welcome Cathy Sheerin to the school today to impart some of her extensive knowledge of 'Tug of War' to the children. Below the children from Ms Mulcair's Junior Infant Class and Ms Hamill's Senior Infant Class try out some of their newly acquired skills!
