Sign Language

Update in Junior Infants

The children in Junior Infants have been learning all about 3-D shapes. They sorted the shapes using the wooden blocks and made 3-D shapes using magnets. The children counted the number of faces on each shape and they figured out that some 3-D shapes can roll and other 3-D shapes can stack.

Irish Number Plates

Today, 4th class enjoyed learning about the number plates on Irish cars. We know that those plates can tell us the year the car was registered, where it was registered and how many cars were registered before it in the given time frame.
