Junior Infants had a very exciting day on their school tour to Dublin Zoo last week. The weather was lovely and sunny and the children saw lots of animals on their day out.
6th class have been combining their Irish skills with P.E. at the moment. Firstly each group was given a fitness circuit in Irish. They had to figure out what to do and what equipment they needed. Then each group completed their own circuit as well as having a go on everyone else’s! Some groups also added in an extra “sixth class” challenge! The children then got the opportunity to teach the Junior Infants how to do each circuit and they completed them together!
Junior Infants and 6th class has some fun today in the sun! T hey were collecting eggs on an Easter Hunt!! Not all the eggs were edible so they had to be careful. Eggs weren’t the only things they found, also some ladybirds!
As a reward for completing such wonderful Seachtain na Gaeilge booklets, 6th class worked with their Junior Infant buddies teaching them how to create a leprechaun!
