We were so lucky to have a visit from 6th Class today. They showed us how to use Scratch to celebrate Tech Week. We had so much fun creating animations with them!
Today we went on our school tour to Airfield Farm. We had lots of fun. We got to chase the chickens, taste the fresh cows milk, eat chives from the garden, fish for tadpoles and found lots of bugs in the forest!
During resilience week we learned lots of ways to manage our feelings and solve problems on our own. We did Yoga in the hall with Mr Joynt, we practiced our breathing and talked about being calm. We did lots of mindful colouring in our class too!
We have been learning all about transport this month. We have had so much fun talking about all the different types of transport and their uses. Then we got to draw them and build them at our Junk Art station. We used all sorts of materials to make cars, planes and even rockets!
We love to build things in Junior Infants. We have started to plan before we build. We chose what material we wanted to use and drew some lovely pictures and then we got to build! Look how well they turned out!
We have been busy learning all about Spring in Junior Infants. We have been learning about all the changes that happen in Springtime. We talked all about baby animals and how busy farms are during the Spring looking after them. Then we were lucky enough to get a visit from some baby animals! A petting zoo came to the school and we learned all about the different animals and what they like to eat.
We learned all about the changes that happen to the world around us too. We planted seeds and watered them every day, we can’t wait to watch them grow into flowers. Then we got to go on a nature walk with Ms Darcy’s class to look for all the signs of Spring around our school. We saw lovely flowers, birds building nests, lots of little lady birds and busy bees buzzing around.
This week we got a visit from Vance. He is an ambassador dog from the Irish Guide Dogs. We learned all about the puppies training and how they help people in need. We got to ask lost of questions and found out about how the dogs know where the bus stop is! Then everyone got a go at petting him, he was lovely.
