The Infant classes have been learning about Spring. The children were delighted to go on a nature trail to spot some signs of Spring in our environment. The children have also been learning about birds we see in Ireland. We went to look for some of these birds around school, they like to call this 'Operation Bird Watch'. The children had a checklist with the names and pictures of these birds and they also recorded where they saw the birds. They really enjoyed this and many said they are going to continue 'Operation Bird Watch' at home! Mr.Griffin was also kind enough to bring some ewes and lambs to school for the students to see. This caused great excitement!!! We are very grateful to Mr.Griffin for visiting us.
Junior and Senior Infants were learning about clothes in Aistear recently. They experimented with fabric and fibre to create an outfit for their individual puppets. They worked together on making a large version of St.Brigid's Cloak. In the Role Play area the children had lots of fun in 'The Clothes Shop' taking turns as the customer, manager, shop assistant etc. The also played Éadaí Biongó.
