Show and Tell

We have Show and Tell every Friday in the Infant Room. 7 people are asked to bring in an object of their choice. Parents should prepare the speech with their child the night before using various questions…Who? What? When? Where? How? Why?


Two of the Senior Infant girls brought in X-ray images and a turtle.

Aistear in Action!

For the month of September, we are learning all about minibeasts in our Aistear Integrated play sessions. Please have a look at the pictures below and ask your child plenty of questions about the activities and games that they have completed in the classroom.


‘The Elephant Group’ worked as a team and made a jigsaw based on the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar.’


The Monkey group worked as scientists in the ‘Bug Research Lab.’



The Zebras made a craft based on the life cycle of the butterfly. At the end of the hour play session, the Zebras showed their craft to the whole class and discussed their work.
