Junior Infants – Numbers and Letters!

Junior Infants were having lots of fun last week playing maths board games and using their knowledge of numbers to play Animal Hunt! How fun!

3rd Class is for the birds!

The cold weather is coming in fast so third class got to action last week – for the sake of the BIRDS! They created biodegradable stacked fruit, vegetable and seed bird feeders! They were placed all around our Secret Garden where they can be enjoyed by our feathered friends.
