Mr.Prout's class performed " Jack and the Beanstalk" for all the school.
We had a visit from two Gardaí. They explained how they are there to help us. They told us about the patrol car and helicopter and their dog Charlie.
The garda showed us all the equipment they use. Then we got a sheet to colour while the Garda took our fingerprints. They told us that our fingerprints are unique to us. It was great fun!
We had a visit to our Senior Infant classes from the vet Caroline. She brought her dog Bernard with her. We told Caroline all about what we are doing in our Aistear station. We learned about the job of a vet and we asked Caroline lots of questions. She even examined our dalmatian 'Brad' with her stethoscope.
Our Aistear theme for April is at the Vets.
In our Role play area we dressed up as a vet, a receptionist and we had customers waiting in our waiting room with their pets.
We deigned posters for the waiting room and we made kennels and homes for our pets using blocks.
Mrs. Harte brought back in the chicks after the Easter holiday to show us. They are nearly three weeks old now. They have really grown!
