Foxes

From now on this will be the Foxes page until they leave the school at the end of 6th class. Each year, news from the Foxes will be added to what happened the previous years. 

1st Class 2021 - 2022

Welcome to 1st Class. Aileen.  

First Class have had a busy time in their third and last term.

They did lots of fun art and some gardening, planting lettuce, pumpkins and strawberries.

Many of the children really enjoyed doing Tag Rugby with Jonathan.

In May the class also had two really fun dance sessions with Emily, a visiting dance artist.

They also made their own obstacle courses in P.E.

On May 30th everyone had a great day on the school’s Annual Walk to St. Enda’s Park.

To top it all they had a wonderful trip to Lullymore Heritage and Discovery Park on June 17.  The sun shone, the animals were very cute, interesting history was explored in the old Irish cottage and replica crannog and our guide Maeve brought us on a beautiful walk through a dappled forest to see a fairy village!  There was even a train ride!  See Gallery of pictures below. All in all it has been a fun-filled term, with the Talent Show and Sports Day yet to come.

Buddy Reading

As Covid restrictions began to lift recently a highlight for First Class was being able to do Buddy Reading with their older school-mates.  A lovely time was had by both Fifth Class and First Class alike as they shared their joy in stories and showing off their reading abilities. Aileen

 

Cosy Day

Another particularly fun day in the last while was Cosy Day.  No one in First Class missed the opportunity to bring in a teddy or a blanket or a cosy dressing gown.  The pictures tell their own story!  It was a very cosy day indeed!  Aileen

Art/Seachtain na Gaeilge/Sequencing

First Class also continue to explore their creativity through producing wonderful works of art.  Just some of their work is on view here – their wonderful spring daffodils, their fun giraffes, their sunsets utilising warm and cold colours and their 3D balloons.  They are a very creative bunch!! Aileen

Bhain Rang a hAon an-taitneamh as an Lá Glas.  Rinne siad iarracht iontach leis na h-éadaí glasa.  Bhí an-cuid Gaeilge á labhairt acu freisin.  Maith sibh Rang a hAon!!

1st Class

Since returning to school in September the children have settled very well into First Class.  Morning activities between 8.45 and 9.10 are one highlight, with the children happily engaged in a range of construction, pattern making and other projects.  Art is another favourite.  Creations so far include emoji art pictures, cat drawings inspired by the work of Laura Burch, print art and, as shown in the photos here, nature art inspired by the work of Andy Goldsworthy.

Senior Infants 2020 - 2021

Senior Infants learn outside

Senior Infants have been enjoying the warmer weather this month. We are lucky to have our cool cushions to use for lunch outside in the sun!

Aistear: The Garden Centre

Our theme in Aistear this month was the Garden Centre. We have been learning all about plants and flowers. We read the story ‘The Tiny Seed’, planted radish, beetroot and spinach with Laura and did a runner bean experiment with Carol. Well done to all the boys and girls in Senior Infants for their great work this month!  

Pancake Tuesday

Senior Infants had fun making and flipping pancakes on Pancake Tuesday. Eve made a puppy pancake and we had a great discussion about our favourite pancake toppings!

Valentine's Day

For Valentine’s Day Senior Infants sent virtual hugs to their friends and family. Eamon sent his virtual hug to everyone all over the world!

Chinese New Year

Senior Infants created some amazing dragons to celebrate Chinese New Year. We also made some special wishes. Luke and Joe carried out the Chinese tradition of attaching their wishes to oranges and throwing them onto tree branches.
