First few days of the new school term 2018 2019

The children of the Junior room to the road and on down to the beach recently
and played their part in the National Spring Clean

The Junior Room participated in the schools recent Art Project with the artist Sarah O'Brien.  
The Project was titled "Drawing Walks".

The walks took the children to Howe Strand. En route they stopped and engaged in experimental drawing techniques. Drawing with their eyes closed, drawing with their non dominant hand and were asked to draw what they heard.
Each group varied depending on their age and ability.
When at Howe Strand the children were encouraged to explore and collect and assemble their own objects to draw and begin to consider their objects for the material value and textures.
The workshops touched on the areas such as audio sensory, tactile, fine motor, gross motor and cultivated the imagination and language.

We started our Kuk Sol Won Classes with Matthew Bonniwell of Kinsale again.

It is so much fun and yet we work so hard.

Keeping fit is fun!

This is the Aistear we're doing at the moment - Our theme is The Doctor's Surgery.
Pictures include Roleplay, Junk Art, and Writing Station

We learn loads while still having so much fun in school!  

We got to dress up for World Book Day.   We went for a lovely walk in the sun and ended up on the beach......
and we finished off our Spring term by making Easter cup cakes....
