Junior Infants visited Newgrange Farm last Monday for their school tour. They got to hold and pet some baby animals, feed some hens and sheep, play with water, go on a tractor ride (where they left the poor farmer behind!) and finish the day off with a picnic. Everyone had a brilliant day and there were some very sleepy boys and girls on the bus home!
The incoming Junior Infants are welcome to visit the infant classrooms on Thursday 21st June at 1:45p.m. – 2:15p.m. We are looking forward to meeting you all.
Audrey and Lucy came to visit Junior and Senior Infants. They taught us 3 very important rules:
- Don’t touch a dog when they are sleeping, leave them alone.
- Don’t touch a dog when they are eating, leave them alone.
- Don’t touch a dog when they are alone, leave them alone
We also learnt how to use a safe hand when petting a dog we do not know.

The basketball team had their first match of the year last thursday. They were narrowly beaten but some great performances in a very even game. Well done to all involved
2nd Class had good fun exploring the topic of Area last week. They were measuring the area of their desktops using various everyday items as units of measurement, like their Maths books, envelopes, playing cards, copies and A4 sheets. They noticed that the smaller the object they used, the greater number of them they needed to cover the desktop.
