Well-being Workshop with Una Curran

October 1, 2023 #

On Monday September 25th we were so lucky to have Una Curran visit our school. The girls went to the halla to take part in a mindfulness & well-being workshop with Una – everyone loved it! We had mats & blankets to lie on & we did a variety of different stretches, mindful breathing techniques, meditation activities even gave each other a story massage!

The girls really enjoyed the whole session & we learned a lot from Una that we are going to practice in the classroom as well. It was a great start to our week for sure!

September 2023

Junior & Senior infants have had a brilliant first month at school! The girls have all settled in really well & we are enjoying every minute so far! September has been such a busy month & the time has flown! The girls are all getting to know each other well & it’s great to see new friendships forming within the class & beyond!

Our theme this month was all about family, we all talked about our own families & shared stories about our families as a class. We also used the theme of family within Aistear (which has been a huge hit with the junior infants so far!) We have done lots of role-play as a family doing day-to-day activities, building houses for families to live in using blocks & using the dolls house to play with as a family also.

Junior infants have been working on identifying colours & matching pairs of objects in maths. They are really enjoying using concrete objects to sort! We have also done lots of practice on our pinch & flip pencil grip when writing & colouring. Senior infants have been doing lots of revision work on our sounds & maths work & are making great progress! The girls are also really enjoying learning Gaeilge & have picked up lots of words already. We even already have a few songs learned! We have read stories, played games & done a lot of movement breaks to keep our bodies & minds busy!

It’s great to see each of the girls happy & settled after the first month back. We look forward to seeing what the rest of the term entails!

Week One September 2023

September 8, 2023 #

Junior & Senior Infants have had a fabulous week settling into school! The girls have been so busy getting to know all of their wonderful classmates over the past few days. We have done some wonderful fun & exciting activities this week!

We have read stories together & chatted about our families & friends. We have done lots of fun activities including our play-dough disco (which was a big hit!), drawing & colouring activities. We made some gorgeous scribble monsters & self-portraits as a part of visual art. We engaged in lots of free play activities & senior infants were a huge help in showing them how we take part in Aistear each day in school. We also have been very busy doing lots of movement breaks in class to keep our minds & bodies active!

Junior infants got fabulous photos taken using our first day of school frame! They have been working on colours in maths & did a super sorting activity using lots of different materials. We have also started to learn Gaeilge & the girls have picked up cúpla focail as Gaeilge already!

Senior infants have been revising their sounds & numbers & are making great progress so far. We have done lots of counting & sorting activities using all of our maths resources! They have had so much fun teaching the junior infants about our routines in school & have been a great influence on the girls.

We have had a super first week in school & we are looking forward to get to know each other even better in the coming weeks!

Basketball Season At Bunscoil Bhríde

March 9, 2023 #

Our basketball season started in November 2022 as we took part in the Cumann na mBunscol basketball league. We have had a massive turn out from the senior classes, with over 40 girls participating in training each week with Ms. Dineen & Ms. Gleeson.

We had a very successful outing in the league this year, making it to the semi-finals! We played teams from Caragh NS, Prosperous & Castledermot. All the girls showed great commitment & teamwork throughout the season and they worked so hard. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be for us on the semi-final days but everyone tried their absolute best & enjoyed the experience.

On March 9th our 6th class girls participated in a basketball blitz in Prosperous. The girls displayed a super turn out on the day but unfortunately it didn’t go our way in the end. Well done to all of the girls that took part, we still had some super scores on the day and we are so proud of their efforts throughout.
