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.

Bye Bye Butterflies!!

We had great excitement in the Infant classroom last Friday when our butterflies hatched. We released them from the butterfly tent this week. The Infants were delighted to get a chance to hold the butterflies before they flew away. Have a look!
