February 2024

February has absolutely flown by this year! We started off the month by celebrating St. Brigid’s Day. We were so lucky to have Ms. Marrinane’s 5th & 6th class girls come & help us to make our own St. Brigid’s crosses from rushes to celebrate the day. The girl’s had great fun with this! Our theme this month is all about Spring & new life, we have looked at the seasonal changes that come with Spring for plants, animals & daily life. We have produced wonderful artwork also, such as textured Spring flowers & baby lambs. We also explored the life-cycle of oak trees & how they start off as a seed in an acorn & can grow to be big strong oak trees after many years!

Senior infants have moved on to length & number 9 in maths. We have also explored procedure writing this month & have progressed from learning all about ‘bossy’ verbs to planning and writing our own procedure to make popcorn! Junior infants have finished with 2D shapes and have now started learning about number 4. Our Gaeilge theme is éadaí & the girls have learned so much new foclóir & are using it readily each day!

We also had a very special guest visit us this month for Spring – our gardener Paddy Madden was in to show us how to plant some mangetouts for our school garden! The girls had great fun with Paddy singing rhymes and songs as we planted & learned all about germination of seeds. We even made our own compostable pots to plant our seeds in!
