Ballinadee Buzz September 2021
Junior and Senior Infants
We were delighted to welcome 8 new Junior Infants to Ballinadee N.S. this year! They have settled in really well and are feeling very excited to start learning their letter sounds and do homework in October. Senior Infants have been very welcoming to the new juniors and are being great role models. Junior and Senior infants were learning about themselves and about their birthdays. They were also learning about hobbies and pastimes. They also wanted to tell you they beat all the king’s horses and all the king’s men because they put Humpty together again!!

First and Second Class
First and second class did a treasure hunt with their spellings and tricky words and they did dot painting and learned about the different shades and colours. They also learned German. They were lucky to have a very interesting visitor to the room too, this beautiful butterfly had a torn wing so came in for a little rest, fortunately he was still able to fly away home!!
Third class learned about maps and the counties of Ireland. They also learned how to say hello, goodbye and their names in German. They were learning about symmetry and made some fabulous symmetrical name artworks. They learned their four times tables. Third class were also delighted to finally make their First Holy Communion on the 18th of September. They were absolutely fantastic on the day and did their teacher, school and their families proud.

We are also learning about the Olympics and the Paralympics. We wrote sport recounts and we roleplayed interviewing sports stars. We are learning all about Ireland, we made brochures about each different county. Sixth class had an amazing confirmation on Thursday 23rd of September.
