Junior Infants

Junior Infants have settled really well into school.



In Maths we are learning to match and sort sets.



In Art we created displays on 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' and 'The Three Little Pigs'.



Each afternoon we take part in Aistear and have great fun!!





We brought our favourite teddy bears to school and had a party.



For History the children brought in some photographs of themselves and we created a timeline.



3rd and 4th classes
The children walked around the village looking at buildings. The children chose their favourite ones and photographed them.



In Art the children did pencil drawings of their favourite buildings. They also made Autumn leaf prints.



In Geography this week the pupils have been watching the weather closely. They used a rain gauge, thermometer, onemometer and weather vane to record it.



In Maths 3rd and 4th classes have studied 2D shapes. They made shape pictures and made shape patterns on tablets




5th and 6th classes
SPHE-
We created a 'Class Contract' to help our class run smoothly. We picked out some of the really important words from the contract. Some of these are Patience, Kind, Manners, Learn, Listen, Prepare, Respect, Together, Safe, Fair and Try.



History- We drew timelines showing all the topics we will cover this year.
We have been studying the Ancient Greeks. We learned about some Greek architecture. Take a look at our pencil drawings of Doric, Ionic and Corinthian columns.



Geography- We have been looking at our local landscape. We went on a walk around the village looking at some of its features.



We drew Mind Maps of our journey from home to school highlighting some important features.



We have also started studying the European Union. Take a look at some of the 28 E.U. flags.



Gaeilge- We have been working on the Mé Féin theme this month. We can say lots about ourselves. We wrote very good stories about ourselves and our families.





English- We have been working on Recount Writing. We have worked in pairs and have written some interesting pieces about news stories we spoke about in class.

Yoga/Mindfulness- We have had some Yoga and Mindfulness classes with Ms. Murphy. She is in her final year in college studying to be a teacher. She has taught us about our breathing as well as lots of different yoga techniques and stretches.









Welcome back everyone.
We give a special welcome to our 14 Junior Infants and our 4 new entrants to Cairdeas and to the other children who started throughout the school.
