Aistear in Junior Infants

It’s all go in Junior Infants this fortnight as they dive into lots of activities during Aistear time based on the traditional story “The Three Little pigs”.

They have been busy Junior Architects designing houses, building houses and they had great fun cutting shapes to create their own showhouses!
Today we enjoyed sequencing the story by using real straw, some sticks and “bricks”

Virtual Reality

Just when we thought that the two cups and a string were pretty sophisticated tools of science- Tullamore Library invited our lucky 1st class students to experience something out of this world- Virtual Reality! With their VR helmet on the students were transported under water to a shipwreck surrounded by whales, stingrays, sharks and fish. The children had the most amazing time discovering with VR Party. Thank you to the organisers!

Pen Pals!

The students of 6th class were thrilled to receive their first letters from their pen pals in New Jersey, USA!! It is going to be fantastic getting to know our new friends in Hooper Avenue Elementary School. Nothing quite like old fashioned letter writing!

Science Week 2018

Science Week 2018 runs from today the 11th until the 18th of November. There are plenty of activities organised around the country and also in Scoil Mhuire to inspire all our budding scientists! The girls of 6th class were treated to a wide variety of fantastic experiments by the Transition Year students of Tullamore College. And yes – at one point the girls were quite happy to sit on a chair of nails!!! We must warn you – stock up on some extra baking soda and vinegar – volcanoes aplenty will be erupting this week! Science Week 2018
