Mini All Ireland Tournament

All week there have been mini Gaelic matches going on at breaktimes. All teams had players from Junior Infants up to 3rd class. It was a great way to mix and learn skills from older classes.

The final was on today, Galway vs Monaghan.

It was a very exciting match!

Our supporters were ready

The players were in a parade before the match started.

It was a tight game with Monaghan coming out as the final winners.

The match was very delayed as it was a draw for so long. Apologies to all the Junior and Senior Infant parents who were waiting. We did expect the match and prize giving to be finished by 1.30. Like a typical All-Ireland final that was not the case!

Huge well done to all involved and to Joe, Ger, Ms Brady, Mr Moloney and Mr O Brien for organising the competition.

There were even Irish dancers there to entertain us at half time!

Well done to Monaghan who won and well done to Galway who were winning till the end.

We were very proud of our two players! They represented Junior Infants brilliantly!

School Garden

Ms Egan's class had a great time exploring the school garden today. 

Ms Garde and Joe were there to help us harvest some radishes, lettuce, peas and strawberries. We had a delicious salad back in the classroom.



We even got our photo taken for the Bray People so keep an eye on tomorrow or next week's edition. 



Keep an eye on our class blog for more images.

Knitting Club

Knitting Club decided to take advantage of the sunny weather this week.


Knitting Club is offered from 4th-6th class. Knitting Club is free unless your child needs needles and wool then there is a cost of €6.



Knitting Club is full for beginners this year but will be offered again next year and more beginners are welcome. 


A small number of places were offered to children in 1st class who could knit already. As this was the first year Ms Egan had to restrict numbers but next year more children will be invited to join.  


Watch this space for more exciting knitting projects next year! 

Pancake Tuesday in Junior Infants

Ms Egan's class had a very exciting day for Pancake Tuesday. 

We talked about what is used to make pancakes. 



We learned a new poem. 

 Mix a pancake

Stir a pancake

Pop it in the pan

Fry a pancake

Toss a pancake

Catch it if you can



We had lots of toppings to choose from. 

While we were waiting to get our pancakes we did a colouring competition and listened to an audio story called Mama Panya's Pancakes. 

Everyone was delighted with their pancakes! 



We gobbled them up super quick!
