Junior & Senior Infants

September News

It has been a super September in the Infant room. A huge welcome to all our new Junior Infant pupils and families as well as all the new families throughout the school.

It feels like you have been here for much longer than four weeks and we are so happy to have you in our BNS community!

Our days are full of activities and the pupils have been busy learning, playing and getting to know each other!

We have met our big buddies in 5th/6th class who are so kind and have lots of fun with us at yard time! They helped us complete 2 art activities and our favourite was a fingerprint autumn tree.

We have been in the church for two assemblies and we said a whole action prayer for all the school to hear and we performed it really well as well as singing the hymns happily and enthusiastically each week.

A big thank you to the PTA for the donation that was very kindly given. We purchased some educational toys for AISTEAR time and playtime in the morning.

We made an orchestra in Music class and all had different instruments to play- we are really very musical!

On the washing line in our classroom hang the most beautiful glitter paintings inspired by "Our Five Senses."

We are learning Gaeilge really well and everyday we say "Dia duit," to each other and are learning lots of poems and action words!

We have started the Walk Tall programme in SPHE where we talk about ways to show we are a good friend and learn all about how important each one of us is.

Finally we have been really enjoying our Yoga classes with Elaine each week; we are getting so good at perfecting the poses and balancing really well.

A huge big well done to all the boys and girls in the Infant Room; I am very proud of all our achievements in one month!
