We have read lots of lovely stories and rhymes. Here is the work we have done with them!
Junior infants were lucky enough to get a visit from a real garda. We learned all about the important role of the gardaí, their uniforms and their vehicles.
We got to try on a garda hat, jacket, and try out his torch. It was great fun and we learned a lot!
We had some lovely input on Road Safety from the RSA. We had lots of fun learning how to stop, look and listen.
We learned about the three B's - we sit in the BACK, in our BOOSTER and we wear our BELT'S!
Look at us strengthening our fine motor skills so that we can become good writers!
We had great fun making butter in room 18. We put cream into a plastic tub along with a marble to help shake the cream up.
Then we put on some music to help us shake shake shake up the cream!
You'll never guess what happened when we'd finished shaking it...
The cream turned into butter and buttermilk!
We washed off the buttermilk and added some salt to make it yummy.
Then we ate it with crackers!
Look at the lovely snowmen we made!
We had lots and lots of fun at the Christmas markets during our last week of school before the holidays. We got to buy home-baked treats, crafts and even get our nails painted by the big girls from 3rd to 6th class!
We have learned lots and lots of sounds and letters and are getting very good at writing words!
We have been having so much fun playing with the school's set of Beebots. Beebots are very cool learning tool. They are robots that are great for teaching lots of skills, such as sequencing, estimation and problem solving.
We are so lucky that our school has this wonderful resource and that the big girls came to help us use them!
We had lots of fun making pancakes in room 18 on Pancake Tuesday!
We used eggs, milk and flour to make the batter.
We then picked our favourite toppings. Some of us went for chocolate and marshmallows and others went for lemon and sugar!
Our favourite part of all was when we got to eat them!
What is your favourite pancake topping?
We made some beautiful valentine's art for our loved ones.
We hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's day and midterm break!
