Homes and Houses in Senior Infants

In Senior Infants we have been learning about different types of homes and houses. We spoke about the different homes that we know: cottages, bungalows, caravans, apartments, detached and semi-detached houses, terraced houses and many more. We also had a go at designing and constructing a home our little teddy bears. We used different equipment and toys from around our classroom. Some girls decided to work together to build their house and some girls designed the inside of their home as well!

Safer Internet Day Assembly

We celebrated #saferinternetday with a whole school assembly, led by Second Class on the safe use of the Internet. We also included the them of being connected as part of Catholic Schools week. We discussed being truly connected with each other in a safe and proper way. The Second Class ladies excelled themselves through drama, song and music. Well done all!

Happy at Hip Hop Class!
