World Down Syndrome

Today is World Down Syndrome Day (March 21st) and we marked the occasion by asking everyone to wear odd socks to school! We discussed what is means to have Downs Syndrome and the socks were a great way of helping us all to understand that despite the socks 'looking' different, they're still socks and can do the exact same job as 'matching socks'.






Spring Walk

Spring has most definitely 'sprung' and the boys and girls of room 2 were out and about this week, enjoying the mild weather and looking for signs of spring. We saw flowers in bloom, buds on the trees and heard the sounds of birds chirping all around us! There was a buzz in the air! We also checked in on our tulips planted last Autumn, they're coming along nicely, not long now and they'll be in flower!










Technology in the Classroom

As part of Scoil Mhuire's involvement as a digital school, use of tablets and Chromebooks is a scheduled part of the school curriculum. Children learn maths skills, phonics, literacy and safe navigation using the internet. Linking in with World Book Day, room 2 are having great fun being authors of their very own digital books. Check back with us here to see how we got on.



World Book Day

To celebrate World Book Day the pupils of Scoil Mhuire took part in several school wide events. The pupils of  6th class came to visit junior infants and enjoyed some shared reading in small groups. The junior infants were treated to story after story chosen by them and read by 6th class. Thanks to 6th class for coming to visit us!







Pancake Party!

Room 2 had great fun making pancakes on Pancake Tuesday- and even better fun eating them!





















Maths- making patterns

Image
As part of our maths learning, junior infants have been learning all about pattern  this term. Three support teachers join us each day to allow us to break into smaller teaching groups to help the learning. The children get to work in small groups or get some one to one support to help them understand the concepts and get a better grasp of early maths. Check out some of room 2's work on pattern from this term.
