Senior Infants , First and Second Class School Tour



For Senior Infants, First and Second Classes our first stop today was ‘Eagle’s Flying’ in Ballymote, where we met some lovely birds and other animals. The peacock was the first to grab our attention…he was up on the roof and making a very loud noise to welcome us. We were amazed to see it and its beautiful feathers.

We all grabbed a seat excitedly for the Eagles Flying Show. Our tour guide talked to us about the birds on the farm and told us some interesting facts. He introduced the birds one by one – species of falcons, owls and eagles. We learned that the owls are native to Ireland. He had food – chicks – ready to keep them happy. We were very impressed to see the birds gliding in the sky and swooping to grab the food. Some of us were very brave, volunteering to hold the birds; others were a little nervous!!! We all enjoyed getting to see the birds up close and to pet them.

Next stop was ‘Funny Bones’ where we had great FUN. There were slides, ball ponds, trampolines, shooting games, a football area, go karts etc to keep us entertained. We definitely got plenty of exercise running, climbing, jumping and playing.

It was great to spend a fun day out with our schoolmates…we had a super day!!!

Senior Infants and First Class Learn about the Five Senses

Ms.Sloyan’s Senior Infants and First Class Learn about the Senses

In the last fortnight, we learned about our five senses. We made some popcorn and we used our senses to talk about what we could see, hear, touch, taste and smell. Our favourite was TASTING the popcorn!!!!!

We designed a popcorn bucket and wrote about what we saw, heard, smelled, touched and tasted. Some of the words we used were ‘ tasty, bumpy, airy, white, buttery, salty, hot, popping, soft, yummy, delicious’. We had great fun!

Autumn/Halloween Art in our Junior Classrooms

Well done to our Junior Infant / Senior Infant-First and First-Second Classes who had their classrooms and their school corridor looking so well as they left for home for their Mid Term breaks.
As always when we walk through the school we realise we have so many talented and creative pupils. A special word of thanks to all our teachers for their hard work. All the children have made a wonderful start to the new school year.
