Junior Infant Sailors ............. what a fantastic crew! I was so proud of all the boys and girls who gave a fantastic performance on stage. I hope the photographs below capture some of the excitement on the night.
Thank you so much to the parents who gave up their time to supervise the classes. Your help was very much appreciated.
Our Christmas concert preparations are now in full swing. The stage has been assembled and the boys and girls have had their first stage rehearsal. I can't wait to see them dressed up as sailors.
We will be performing our class scene on Wednesday night December 6th. The details of what time to arrive and what classroom to go to will be sent home in advance.
Just to let you know that the Junior Infants will get their vaccinations on Monday 11th of December.
C.L.O.V.E.R. Pack Meeting
A huge thank you to all the parents who came to the CLOVER meeting with Ms. O'Malley. The children loved it when you came to the classroom to read them a story while others asked you to help them with a writing activity!
Ready Set Go Maths
Three times per week we use the Ready Set Go Maths Program which uses concrete materials and focuses on the areas of sorting random collections, sorting by 1 or 2 criteria, matching and number. We learn through collaborative work and fun games such as 'Happy Faces' and 'Shape Hunt'.
We are grateful to Mrs. Duffy who is our In Class Support teacher for maths. Anne is huge help to us during these activities.
Mr. Kilcoyne is with us for 5 weeks. We have been very busy with artwork - making spiders from our handprints and painting pumpkins. We learned about the importance of staying safe during Halloween while having fun 'trick or treating'.
We are having great fun with Mr. Kilcoyne learning some of the skills of tennis.
The school has worked on a project about foods from different countries around the world. The country we focused on was Italy. We learned that some of our food favourites come from there including Pizza and pasta!

Our classroom was a very scary place today! We had monsters, spiderman, princesses, witches and many many more visitors! All the boys and girls made a great effort - well done, you all looked AMAZING!
It is Space Week in Clonburris School.
We are learning about the sun and the 8 planets.
Thank you to Michael Carroll for bringing in 'Adam's Amazing Space Adventure'. The children have loved hearing this story.
We have learned about Kandinsky and some of his paintings. The children thought than one of his painting looked like planets in Space. They also thought Starry Night by Van Gogh was appropriate for Space Week! Well done to all the boys and girls who dressed up. You all looked great.
We look after each other in our class in Junior Infants. We are bucket fillers. How do we do this? By helping each other, by using kind words, listening to each other, complimenting each other and by including each other.
