Junior Infants Room 2: Literacy Week and Seachtain Na Gaeilge

Room 2 had a great time celebrating Literacy Week and have become brilliant story tellers! They created their own wonderful mini-story books, making sure to include characters, a setting, a problem, solution and ending, and really enjoyed having the mums, dads, and First Class children come in and read stories to them. They re-enacted the story of ‘The Enormous Turnip’ in their puppet theatres, dressed up for World Book Day, and took part in a costume parade with all of their friends (and teachers!)  in Rooms 1 and 5.

During Seachtain na Gaeilge the children made an extra effort to bí ag labhairt as Gaeilge (speaking Irish), and did a fantastic job of showing their families all the learning they have been doing in school trí Gaeilge on Lá Glás. As part of the week’s activities, they also printed shamrocks using apples, had a céilí in class, and were visited by Second Class children who taught them all about the Irish flag- can you remember what the three colours on the flag stand for? Maith sibh Seomra a dó, tá sibh ar fheabhas (you are wonderful) and míle buíochas (huge thanks) to all the parents and grandparents for taking such an active role in school activities over the last term. Happy holidays to all!
