This week is the last week before your summer holidays. We have lots of fun activities planned for you. This week is all about revision and looking back on the year.
We have made exciting maths trails for you to do on Monday and Tuesday. You will get to make a maths trail for your family to do on Wednesday.
You will also be listening to nursery rhymes and fairy tales this week; nursery rhymes are a great way to practise your phonics.

This week, I heard some very exciting news from Lexi and her family. Lexi has a lovely new baby sister called Aria who was born a few weeks ago. Aria is so lucky to have a caring BIG SISTER like you Lexi! I would like to say a big CONGRATULATIONS to Lexi, her sister Leah, her brother Darren and to their mom and dad. Have a look at beautiful baby Aria with her wonderful older siblings.
We are so happy for you all.
Hello Senior Infants,
We hope that you are all keeping safe and active. It is great to see all the ‘Le Chéile, Óna Chéile’ posters you made. You should be extremely proud to be part of such an amazing school. What a fantastic achievement!
Did you enjoy your virtual school tours last week? We were delighted to see that you made a fort, how fun was that and what a cool place to read a book!
We are so excited to announce that this week is sports week! We have been so busy preparing all the different activities for you to do. Look out for Ms Keddy in the videos! Feel free to send on any videos/ pictures of you doing the challenges - we would love to see how you get on!
You will have a sports challenge for you each day. There are demonstrations for each challenge on the school’s sports day YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC20P-gnVeaE_1FQuOlAdDoQ
We have two wonderful Irish poems about sport for you this week. Here is a link to the Irish words.
