Our First School Tour – Junior Infants and Evergreen

Last Tuesday was a very exciting day for Louise, Fiona and David’s classes.  We went on our first school tour together to Lolo Land in Navan.  For many of us, it was our first time on a bus and we got to see lots along the way.  When we arrived in Lolo Land, we discovered that there was lots to play with.  There was a small farm, a garda station, a cafe, a stage, a bank, a castle, a construction site, a hairdressers, a shop and even a hotel to name some!  We had our lunch in the hotel.  It was a very busy day and we had lots of fun.

Baking with Grainne

Last Thursday, we made brown bread rolls with Grainne.  She brought in milk, flour, salt and baking powder for us to use.  We had to work together at our tables, taking turns to mix the ingredients before forming our own bread rolls.  

Art in Louise’s Junior Infants

In January, we were learning about different types of habitats.  We sang along to ‘The Habitat Song’.  We discussed the types of places that we think insects, birds, fish and different types of animals might like to live, and we learned about how we can all take care of our environment.

In Art, we discussed the colours that we might see in various habitats, before making our own using coloured paper, fabric and fibre.
