Junior Infants Hurl with the Harriers!

Posted on March 30th, 2017 in Active Flag,Ms. Barron,Ms. Whelan by Mrs. English

On Wednesday 29th March three coaches from the Faythe Harriers Hurling Club came to our school to introduce the game of hurling to the boys and girls.  Everyone had great fun and really enjoyed learning how to hurl.  A huge thank you to the three coaches Pat Doyle, Darren Caulfield and David Murphy.

Put your hands up if you are having fun

 Can you find yourself in the photos? Who knows maybe Davy Fitz will be checking out our school blog looking for potential hurlers!

We went on a Scavenger Hunt in Redmond Park where we found lots of interesting things. After all our hunting we got to play in the playground!

Junior Achievement

Annette from Junior Achievement taught us lots about our community and the different roles the people in our community play. We also got to design our very own cake businesses. Because we worked so hard, Annette brought us in some Cookie Monster buns on her very last day. Thank You Annette!

We had lots of fun planting and taking care of our strawberries, but picking and eating them was definitely the best part!

We made these Springtime mosaics using lots of coloured beans and pastas. It took lots of concentration but we got there in the end. Come and view the finished products outside room 5!

Mother’s Day

Posted on April 7th, 2014 in Ms. Whelan by Ms. Whelan  Tagged

We made some handbags for our mothers this Mother’s Day. We tried to use colours and decorations that our mother’s would like!



Posted on April 7th, 2014 in Ms. Whelan by Ms. Whelan  Tagged

We had so much fun learning all about Space. We imagined what it must be like for the astronauts who are going to live on Mars. We pretended we were those astronauts and designed our very own rockets and space suits. We also wrote postcards to our friends back home! Maybe one of us really will go there one day!


Paired Reading

Making Butter

Posted on February 13th, 2014 in Ms. Whelan by Ms. Whelan  Tagged

We were very busy making butter and couldn’t believe how easy it was (when you have plenty of pairs of strong arms)!

First we added some cream to a jar. We tied the lid on tight and took turns shaking it as hard as we could,

IMG_3704 IMG_3705 IMG_3706 IMG_3707 IMG_3708 IMG_3716IMG_3717


This was what it looked like when we were finished shaking. We poured off the butter milk and we were left with butter!
IMG_3718 IMG_3719 IMG_3721

We spread it on some crackers and…..


We ate it! It was the nicest butter we ever tasted, if we do say so ourselves.IMG_3723 IMG_3724 IMG_3725 IMG_3726

We are feeling a bit batty in room 5!
