The children in Miss Kelly’s room had great fun learning different types of dance.
The children in Ms. Kelly’s classroom have begun their folk dancing.
Folk dances are dances that are developed by people that reflect the life of the people of a certain country or region.
We look forward to seeing the children’s different dances they learn.

We have been learning all about different types of houses and homes, from bungalows to flats and two-storeys to castles. We have talked about the rooms you would find in most houses and the materials used all around the house.
In the past two weeks we have also been building houses! We made our own buider hats from paper maiche and made a big mess! We have been designing rooms in shoeboxes and collecting photographs and drawings of furniture for the various rooms in a house. It has been hard work but good fun!
This week we have been learning about An Aimsir and as part of this we made our own mini weather station.
We made a windsock which shows the wind direction and how strong the wind is.
We also made a rain gauge to measure the rainfall. Ryan’s Dad brought us a big pot full of chips to keep the gauge steady, we made a funnel from the top of a bottle and the rain collects in a jar underneath.
This week Junior and Senior Infants were very lucky to have Jennifer help them make beautiful fish tanks from shoe boxes.

We also collected many seeds like the ash key, the horse chestnut and beech nut. We heard birds and a tractor and we noticed that the weather has started to get cooler. Here are some pictures from our nature walk:
