The Junior Infants and Senior Infants had a wonderful time on the Teddybear’s picnic. Have a look at our photographs.
The children had a visit from the local Seatbelt Sheriff and learned about the importance of wearing a seatbelt in the car. They were all given the task of becoming Seatbelt Sheriffs to remind people of the importance of wearing seatbelts when in your car.
The children really enjoyed the visit from Dundalk Football Club and got a chance to see all the trophies from a very successful season.
As the end of our school year approaches, some more of our excellent pupils received excellence awards.
All the senior classes in our school have been very lucky to have learnt how to knit this year, thanks to the help of some of our parents and grandparents. Thank you Treasa in particular for all your help and patience! We really enjoyed it.
We brought in soil samples from our homes and enjoyed following a flowchart to categorise the type of soil in our gardens at home.
3rd and 4th enjoyed making maps of our new wonderful playground and completing orienteering activities in pairs around it. We then got to design obstacle courses around the playground on our maps and in reality. What a great way to get to explore our new playground!
