PostHeaderIcon Room 1 Library Trip

Thursday June 6th 2019

Last Thursday Ms. Downey’s Class made their first visit to the ILAC Library. Mr. Brady, Linda and some great parents came too. Before we left we had time to play some Maths Games in the classroom.

If you are planning to buy any games over the summer please check out Orchard Games. As you can see from the photos above the children love them!

Then we set off for the Library using our Maths Eyes on the way. When we arrived James, the Librarian, was there to welcome us. He read two stories The Library Book and Ice Boy.

The children listened very carefully and helped out with a little song and actions: We’re going down to The Library, picking out a book, check it in, check it out!

Then James gave Ms. Downey our Library Cards and we all got a chance to pick a book each to check out using the Check Out Machine. Ezster helped us.

Remember you can keep your book for up to 3 weeks so it must be returned to any library by Thursday 27th of June. Your child can borrow up to 9 books or DVD’s and the library also has children’s books in other languages too!

Please make use of your local library over the summer. It is a great free resource!

PostHeaderIcon Time Capsule in Room 11

Lexi Griffin being interviewed by Today FM

First class (Room 11) were invited to participate in a time capsule initiative with The Ark Theatre in March 2019. Each child filled out a form of what they would like to put in the time capsule. This was buried and is set to be dug up in fifty years time! Room 11 had to think about some items they would like to include to show the boys and girls of 2069. The boys and girls of Room 11 chose different toys they like to play with now, in 2019. They can’t wait to see what children will think of them in 2069! Some of the boys and girls were interviewed by Today FM and RTE Junior. They did a great job!
