Junior Infants- It’s a bug’s life!

Junior Infants enjoyed learning about Minibeasts. They enjoyed a minibeast hunt around the school and collected lots of different minibeasts including snails, slugs, worms, spiders and even a frog! The children also made their own minibeasts using playdoh.

Junior Infant and The Haven School Tour

Junior Infants and The Haven class recently enjoyed their school tour to Westport. The children enjoyed the journey on the bus from Knock to Claremorris, the train from Claremorris to Westport and then the children enjoyed playtime in The Wild West. We had a great time and so much fun.

Junior Infants and The Haven

Junior Infants and The Haven class recently enjoyed a trip to Claremorris to Mc Mahon Park. The children loved this park and had a lovely walk around the lake. They also enjoyed feeding the ducks, geese and goslings. They also had the opportunity to enjoy their lunch outside in the beautiful weather we are having at the moment.

The children then went to Claremorris Athletic Track and took part in different athletic disciplines including Hurdles, Long Jump, High Jump and The Relay. Great fun was had by all:-)
