Our Fish Tank Creations!

We have been learning about ‘Pets’ in the Infant classroom, so we decided to make fish tanks from shoeboxes. We used blue paint for the water, yellow paint for the sand and created the underwater scene using fabric, stickers, coloured card, crepe paper, string and pipe cleaners. We were delighted to bring home our creations on Friday!

Guest speaker from the ISPCA

The Infant Classroom was alive with excitement last Friday when Eva from the ISPCA came to visit us with an adorable Pomeranian puppy called Fifi.

Eva told us about the valuable role of the ISPCA. She also explained the importance of looking after animals correctly. We asked her lots of questions about animals and her job.

We really enjoyed petting Fifi and watching her explore our classroom.  Fifi is currently looking for a home. She is 6 weeks old.  If you feel you can provide a loving home for Fifi or wish to adopt an animal you can find information by clicking on the link below, or call the ISPCA on 043 3325035

THANK YOU EVA FOR YOUR VISIT! We really enjoyed learning about the great work of the ISPCA!

Gaelgóirí na Míosa

Táimid ag cur béim ar labhairt na Gaeilge.  Bhain na daltaí sa phictúir duais mar bhain siad úsáid as gaeilge sa seomra ranga, sa chlos agus timpeall na scoile.

(We are encouraging the use of Irish.  These pupils in the picture won a prize because they used Irish in the classroom, in the yard and all around the school.)

Bain trial as sa bhaile freisin! (Try it at home too!)

Story Time

The Infant Classroom was full of enthusiastic storytellers today from 3rd and 4th classes.

The children in 3rd and 4th classes created their own stories this week, and presented them to the Infants.
