Last Thursday Junior infants went to Newgrange farm. We saw all the animals, fed the ducks and hens, played in the sand, played on tractors, hid in mazes of hay and lots more. We had the best day and I am sure you can see that from their faces!
Four weeks ago ten caterpillars arrived in Miss Daly’s Junior infant class. For the last couple of weeks we have been learning all about the life cycle of the butterfly. At the moment all caterpillars have now gone into their chrysalis and we are hoping to have butterflies on Monday. The boys and girls made invitations which went home on Tuesday. The children have invited one or two special visitors to come in on Tuesday 28th of May at ten past one to learn all about the life cycle of the butterfly. We can’t wait to welcome parents, grandparents, family and friends into our class. Here’s a sneak peek.
For the month of January our classroom was transformed into the airport. The children began by drawing what they could see outside an aeroplane window. They also designed their own plane and a uniform. At the airport we mapped places that we have visited in Ireland and the world. We were lucky enough to have a visit from a pilot who spoke to us about his job! We finished off the topic by listening to pupil’s experiences of living abroad.
