Democracy at work in Ruth and Triona's 3rd class!

In Ruth and Triona's 3rd class we have been discussing democracy and what it means to us.  To put it into practice we decided to vote for our Green Team representative.  Each candidate gave a short speech about why their classmates should vote for them.  Every child had one secret vote and the ballots were then counted.  Congratulations to Amanda, the new Green Team representative for our class! Check out our photo's in the powerpoint below.

3rd Class Padlet Link for Science Week

Dear Parents,

Science Week is taking place this week Monday 14th –Friday 18th November.  We are planning to join in the celebrations. As part of the week, we would like the children in third class to investigate and try their own science experiment at home. We will then ask the children to take their science experiment into school at the end of the week to show the class. To help the children with their experiment, we have attached a padlet link https://padlet.com/graceflaherty/troqbgekm3vw

Airport in senior infants

During the month of October we have had an airport theme in Gráinne's class.  Our play stations have been designed around the airport.  Firstly we had a check-in desk and security desk in the role play area, then we used the Mobilo to build flying machines and finally in art and science we made helicopters, rockets and paper planes.  It was great fun playing with all these things  Thank you to all the mammies and daddies how allowed us to share our airport toys with our friends.
