On Tuesday we were very lucky to have had a visit from Joe from Playball summer camps. Each class got to play some really fun games out in the yard and everyone got a Mr. Sporty stamp for being so well behaved.

Summer is here!

This week in Junior Infants we have been talking all about Summer. On a trip to the park we noticed that the trees are full of leaves, there are flowers, birds, animals and insects all around, and the weather is hot and sunny. It was a beautiful Summer day and we had a fantastic time!

Book Fair Fun!

This week we were very lucky to have had a visit from the book fair. On Thursday and Friday evening everyone spent some time browsing through the books and some people made themselves very comfortable on the beanbags! The event was a great success thanks to the kind parents who were here to lend a […]

b is for brave

The Junior Infants had their immunistaion injections this week. Everyone was so brave and well behaved that the kind nurse gave everybody cool stickers and we had lollipops as a treat back in the classroom. Well done everybody!

Spring at last?

It seems that Spring has finally arrived at Carlow Educate Together. Ciara’s class planted bulbs last October and at long last a snowdrop and a daffodil have appeared. Let’s hope the pot is bursting with Spring flowers when we return from our holidays!

Claire’s class did a really funny drama of Cinderella, Emer’s class sang a song “Is mise an ceoltóir” and Ciara’s class sang the song “Leipreachán”. Everyone worked to hard and we […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

We learned a lovely song called “Lá le Pádraig”, listened to the story of Patrick, coloured and cut out shamrocks, made flags to wave at the parade, coloured a picture of Patrick and watched some parades on the whiteboard. Phew….what a lot of hard […]

Growing Up

The Junior Infants have been looking at how grown up they have become. Everyone brought in a picture of themselves when they were a baby. They have changed a lot but we noticed that lots of things stay the same as we grow too. We have our baby pictures up in the classroom now. They […]
