First Class brave the weather!

First class boys braved the bit of rain on Wednesday in search of 3D Shapes in the local area – they were not disappointed – they found real life cylinders,cones,cubes,cuboids and spheres all around them. They have been learning all about them all week with Ms. Cullen.

Also they drew some boats and ships that they saw off the Pigeon House Road in the Liffey. Here are all the photos of the boys wrapped up and having great fun!

Senior Infants fun during NEYAI Dublin Docklands numeracy week.

Senior Infants had great fun this week during numeracy week. We took part in some great activities, including reading stories,an  obstacle course in PE, tangrams & a treasure hunt (pictures can be seen below). The focus of this intiative was the use of positional language. Many thanks to all the parents for their co-operation and help with doing the extension activities at home. Also thanks to Ms Sherry for organising our treasure hunt on Friday it was very exciting! We look forward to working on this programme again after Christmas as it was a great success!
