November 2018
This month we learned all about winter! It’s is a very cold month. We made winter hats in art aswell as penguins. We built the three little pigs houses and went to Dramaland to meet the big bad wolf. We have been busy practicing songs for the carol service! Our junior and Senior infants have enjoyed dancing in PE this strand! Our class had over 30 shoeboxes for the Christmas Shoebox appeal , there was great excitement as we sent them off! We made two class shoeboxes and filled them up! We went over the the hall where the Tidy Towns Commitee showed us their Trophies and prizes for this year , they also gave us a treat. This month we went to the staff room and made hot chocolate as a treat!

October 2018
This month for History we focused on our past. Children brought in baby photos as well as artefacts from when they were young! There were shoes, bibs, babygros and some very precious teddies. Lots of children found it very hard to believe that they were ever this small. We played lots of playground games in PE and we are extremely lucky to have Seamus Comerford from GAA Carlow schools development programme come to school and take us for a GAA lesson. This is without a doubt a big highlight to our week! We went to the senior ASD class where one of the older boys read us a story. We listened so well and answered lots of his questions! This month we had Maths Week. Our class did lots of extra maths stations, wrote an acrostic poem and really challenged ourselves. One of our challenges was to drop an egg from a height without breaking it using just newspapers! We loved this experiment! As is tradition we took off on our Witch Walk on the last day of school. We walked the whole way to Huntington Castle. We went inside and it was very dark and scary! This is always one of our favourite days in the school year. We are so lucky to have Huntington Castle on our door step!

September 2018
On the 30th of August 2018, 8 new Junior Infants made their way up the path of Clonegal NS ready for new beginnings. There were new school bags, new lunch boxes, new faces and new friends. The Senior Infants could not wait to meet their new friends whom they would share a classroom with. There are now 25 pupils in our classroom. We have had a very busy September: getting a tour of our new school, meeting our new principal, picking apples, painting, playing laughing and learning. We have really settled in well and have learned so much already. The Senior Infants are a great example to the Junior Infants, showing them how to be kind and how to play nicely.
