The Pet Shop
The children set up The Pet Shop for the month of February.
Thank you to all the parents for allowing the children to bring in their toy pets from home.
A very big thank you Sophie in 6th class for bringing back her large pink spotty snake for the children to play with. Also, thank you to Ms. Hobson for bringing in a wonderful collection of animals for the children. The huge orangutan was a favourite.
Junior Infants – 2nd class have enjoyed four weeks of Cricket coaching with Asif from Sligo Sport Partnership.
The children learned many new skills and are thankful to Ms. McMahon for organising the coaching.
For the month of October the children were learning all about Space. We set up a role play area for the control station and astronauts. We also set up a junk art station and playdough area for the children to experiment and make space related items.
Junior Infants – 2nd class teamed up with children from Ardkeeran NS to do some exciting science. The children had great fun investigating forces. First, they tried some balancing acitivites and games. Then they investigated in pairs how to balance a cardboard clown on their finger using a little help from some materials.
The Junior Room welcomed Jaydon into Junior Infants and said farewell to Patrick, Shanzay and Hania as they went upstairs in 3rd class.
The boys and girls set up The Créche for Aistear. They enjoyed working at the reception desk, taking messages, answering the phone and making signs. They also enjoyed changing nappies, redressing the dolls and making food for lunch and dinner.
Ms. Hobson brought in old shark teeth for us to look at. They were old but still very sharp.
The children loved all the art work they did, based on the theme “Myself”.
The children really enjoyed watching Joe(the sheepdog) being put through his paces by Mr. Feeney.
The learned about the special whistle that is used for working sheepdogs.
They also got to hold a beautiful woolly lamb and pet Joe.
