We had great excitement in Senior Infants today as we had a lot of very special visitors. As a reward for getting 5 stars for good lining up and coming to school on time we had a Teddy Bears Picnic on the last day before Mid-term. It was such a nice day that we even got to show our teddy bears where we play at yard time.
This month we’ve been looking at narrative writing. We’ve looked at all the stories we covered this year so far and tried to figure out what makes a good book. We found that good books have an good beginning, a problem and solution. We wrote our own story called ‘ A Snowy Day’. The boys and girls drew a picture for different parts of the story and narrated it. Take a look at what our finished stories looked like!
Our green Schools had a very exciting week this week. We attended a protest outside Leinster House in Dublin with over 400 other children from different schools. We were protesting the inaction of our government to tackle the very important issue of Climate change. We got the bus from Ashbourne and walked there. We shouted slogans like “We want change” and “What do we want? Climate Action! When do we want it? NOW!”. We even made it on the news!

After the protest we had our lunch in St. Stephens Green before getting the bus back. We would like to thank our teachers Emily, Robert and Carole Pinto for coming with us !
We had a fantastic day!
