Last week, Senior Infants went on a spring walk around the school. We spent some time discussing the different ways we can tell spring has arrived and decided to venture outside to search for spring.

 

On our walk we saw some daffodils in bloom, some new buds and blossoms on the trees and plants and we also spotted a couple of nests.

 

 

 

We are really excited to see more signs of spring and good weather around Scoil Oilibhéir.

On Tuesday February 5th some boys and girls in Scoil Oilibhéir celebrated Chinese New Year 2019- the year of the pig.

In Room 4, Mrs Wong visited to tell the 1st class children all about the Chinese New year. The children were given red envelopes with coins in them and also taught how to use chopsticks. The children then presented their beautiful Chinese projects to her.

 

The boys and girls in An Droichead were very busy doing some art to celebrate Chinese New Year.

Senior Infants in Room 1 were also working hard and made some beautiful dragons.

Over the last few weeks Ms O’Mahony’s Senior Infants have been having great fun in school. We have been sharing our favourite books with the class, taking trips to Tír na Sí (the lovely library) and dressing up in our brilliant new Aistear Room. We really enjoyed doing some autumn art and chilling out for Mental Health week with some meditation and bubble blowing. To top it all off we got to wear our bright amber and yellow colors on the yard for Friendship Week and drew some lovely chalk pictures. We are looking forward to the midterm break for a well deserved rest after such a busy time in school. Check out the photos to see what we’ve been up to!
