In room 1, 4th and 5th class worked together on a collaborative art display. We each took a quarter of a circle shape and first sketched a design on it, then painted it, on our own. Each one of them on their own is quite small an interesting, but when we put them together, they certainly make a pretty picture. Just like us when we work together as a team!
In May our school won our 6th Green Flag – ‘Global Citizenship Litter and Waste’. A girl from 6th and a boy from 3rd who are on the Green School Committee got chosen to go to Claremorris to collect the flag. They had a great day out.
At the end of June our class had a presentation of reading certs which we won by doing library quizzes. We have enjoyed reading books in the library this year.
We worked on SALF folders during the year in 3rd class. SALF means – Self Assessment Learning Folder. During the year we put some of our best work into the folders to show to everyone. We had fun working in groups and looking at all the folders. We have pictures here of our class showing some lovely work which we are very proud of.
In Junior Infants this week we have been learning to retell the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’. To help us with this we created a story map and we also made some puppets of the different story characters. We can now retell the story to others using these fantastic puppets.
Today we also baked some bread to see all the work that The Little Red Hen had to do by herself in the story. We really enjoyed our baking and because we helped each other and worked together we made some delicious and healthy brown bread…Yum yum!!!

As part of the research study the Junior Infants have been taking part in around exploitative play, we went on a trip to Hazelwood. We had a fantastic time learning about all the different trees and flowers. We met the wooden giant who had lots to treasures for us and even had a delicious bun ready for us at the end of our adventure. Junior Infants would like to say a big thank you to the IT students who kindly came along and helped us on our trip and to Trish for organising the trip for us.
