The Doctor

The Infants have finished the theme of the doctor. Over the past 3 weeks, the Infants have worked in a pretend doctor’s surgery, explored their 5 senses, sang the rhyme ‘Miss Polly had a dolly’ and listened to the story of ‘Daisy the Doctor.’ We made doctor’s kits and X-ray handprints. They also learnt the names of the body parts ‘as Gaeilge’ (through Irish). Our next theme for our Aistear play sessions is ‘Autumn.’

A big thank you to Mrs. Abi Acheson for visiting the Infant classroom on Thursday afternoon. The children really enjoyed listening to Abi as she shared lots of interesting information about her job as a midwife. Abi brought in her baby doll, Rachael and showed the children how to hold the baby correctly. She also taught the children about cleaning, dressing and feeding the baby. The Infants had great fun. Thank you Abi!

The day the lambs came to school

A big thank you to Seamus McPhillips for bringing his two pet lambs to school today. The children really enjoyed petting them and feeding them. It was a fitting end to the Farm theme which the Infants have been learning about in Aistear.

A visit from the firefighters!

We were delighted to welcome three firefighters to our school last Wednesday. The children had the opportunity to ask the firemen questions about their job. They even had a chance to hop on board the fire engine.

A big thank you to John, Merrvyn and Ian for taking the time to visit our school!

Christmas Countdown

We are very excited about Christmas in the Infant Room. We set up a post office and have been busy writing and posting letters to Santa. The postman came to visit our classroom today.  We asked him lots of questions about his job! He showed us the inside of his van too!


We are busy making lots of Christmas crafts! Have a look below!
