Ms Madden's boys had great fun at their teddy bears picnic in the Castle Field. Both the boys and their teddy bears really enjoyed exploring the castle grounds and were even brave enough to climb to the top of the castle.
After finishing the 'Wow!' reader, Ms Madden's boys decided they would like to design their own rockets like Danny and his friends. The first step was to make a plan of what they wanted their rocket to look like.
Ms Madden's got some large boxes we could use for our rockets and in our teams we started to design them.
Next the painting began.
The boys also brought in things from home to put on their rockets: stickers, engines, windows etc.
The boys were very proud of their rockets.
All that was left to do was to blast off into space!
Junior infants went on a teddy bears picnic this week ! The weather was so nice that they got to go to the playground too !
Junior Infants got a tour of Nenagh Courthouse . We got to go into the courthouse and see a mock trial happening . We even got to go underground to the cells !!
We had great fun on our school tour to Kids Zone in Limerick. Some boys used so much energy, they needed a snooze on the way home.
The boys really enjoyed working on the different strands for Active Week.
They had to work in pairs to figure out clues for orienteering.
The boys had to run laps and navigate an obstacle course for Athletics.
Dancing was great fun and the boys showed off their moves playing musical statues.
Two gardaí visited our school and talked to each class group about their job. They talked about the equipment they use and how the boys can keep safe. While the boys coloured pictures of different vehicles that the guards use - bicycles, motorbikes, helicopters, one of the guards went around to take the boys' fingerprints. When they were leaving they invited us down for a tour of the garda station.
We had great fun learning all about the Post Office in Aistear. Putting our writing skills on show we wrote letters for our friends and went to the post office to get stamps for them.Sometimes, the boys wrapped parcels to send. A different boy each day was picked to be the postman and delivered the letters and parcels to the boys. At the arts and crafts table the boys designed their own postboxes. We did such a good job that our postman John came into the class with his bicycle to tells us all about his job.
