All the Junior Infants went off to Rathfarnham Castle for their school tour. They had a great time and really enjoyed the bus trip. The weather was lovely and they had a fantastic time playing in the playground. They had a lovely picnic too!

 

Brian O’Driscoll’s visit to school

Last Wednesday we had a very special surprise visitor to school. Brian O’Driscoll dropped by to say hello with the RBS 6 Nations trophy. We were very honoured in 1st class to be in on the secret and to put on an assembly for Brian filled with facts, questions and singing. He was very impressed with the wonderful reception he received and everyone had a chance to meet the legend himself. Brian you’re welcome back anytime!!

All the Senior Infants headed off to Glenroe farm on Monday 26th May. We are learning about the farm in Aistear so we were very excited to go and visit a real farm. We saw lots of animals and we even got to feed them and touch them.

There were horses, pigs, cows, goats, and deers. We saw hens and chickens too. There were rabbits and gerbils also.

We had fun playing in the playground after our tour.

Glenroe farm are celebrating 20 years so go and visit – click on the link to find out more

National Gallery Trip

On Friday May 16th Ms. Carney’s 3rd class went on a trip to the National Gallery. We took the bus in to town and arrived in plenty of time for our guided tour. We saw lots of beautiful paintings and learned some interesting facts about the artists and their works. After the gallery we took advantage of the fabulous sunshine and went to St. Stephen’s Green for a picnic. We had a lovely day out.

The Farm

 

In Senior Infants, we are learning all about the farm.

We drew pictures of real pigs and fictional pigs. Can you guess which is which?

We printed grass in a field with wool, then we glued on newspaper sheep.

We had to build fences to protect the sheep! Baa Baa Black sheep…

Yarnbombing!

Imagine our surprise to arrive in school this morning to discover a Yarnbombing event had taken place overnight. Yarnbombing is when an outdoor object is covered with colourful strips of knitting and crochet. It is often done in secret. One of the basketball poles has been beautifully transformed and a few smaller pieces are dotted around the yard. Ms. Hume has said she has no idea who is responsible but added “It’s a colourful and welcome addition to the school”

 

 

Junior Infants Gardening

We have been very busy gardening here in Junior Infants. We planted potatoes, onions, cabbages and flowers. We looked after our plants well by weeding regularly. Some snails really liked our plants ! We dug up some of our cabbages recently and Ms. Heffernan’s class visited 3rd class to proudly display lovely healthy heads of green cabbage.
