The Junior Infant children in room 2 have been learning about hot and cold. We learnt how some things can change from a solid to a liquid or from a liquid to a solid if we make it hotter or colder. We melted chocolate in our warm hands and mouths. We made milk turn into icecream by making it very cold.

The Junior Infant boys and girls enjoyed a Spring Walk to Mountjoy Park recently. They saw daffodils and cherry blossom trees.
Over the last few weeks (Feburary/March) we (A5/ EX1) have been busy putting our G.A.A. skills into practice. Martin Nolan and his team of Transition year students from Larkin College have been kind enough to train us each Thursday here on our school grounds!
This G.A.A. initiative has been set up in conjunction with Parnell Park and Dublin City Council! We love it! So far we have been working on our hand-eye co-ordination, first touch of the ball, soloing, hand pass, and fist pass. We build on these skills then in games such as G.A.A. rounders, the county game, and no mans land just to name a few!
We absolutely love it! There will also be an Easter Camp taking place with Martin and his team! We are really looking forward to it!
