Here are some pictures of the Junior Infants having lots of fun learning in their classroom.
Sorting, moving and grooving at a playdough disco and making healthy lunches with out playdough are just some of the activities we have been doing this month.
For Science Week 2022, 3rd and 4th class took part in a hands-on experiment to investigate how materials can change their state of matter, as well as the effects of heating and cooling on liquids, solids and gases. As the part of this the students made their own ice-cream which they enjoyed on a cone on a chilly November day.
Third and Fourth class were learning about different types of materials as part of their science lesson. In pairs they explored outside the school to see what materials made up different features of the school yard.
This week we were learning about shapes in 3rd and 4th class. We went on a shape hunt outside and took pictures of the many shapes we saw using iPads. We then edited our photos, highlighting the exact shapes on each picture and labelling each of the shapes too. Finally, we went back into the classroom and shared what we found with the other children in the class.
To celebrate Maths Week 2021 the pupils in our school took part in a number of different activities and events. In 3rd and 4th class we had a daily maths challenge competition, played maths board games, had a scavenger hunt, we took part in some interactive games on the iPads and interactive whiteboard and we even integrated maths into our PE lessons. Below are pictures of some of our activities during the week. We all had great fun!
The very talented pupils in Ms. Rafferty's class created some wonderful moonlit owls for one of their art lessons. I think you'll agree they look fantastic!
