Be Active · PE


Since dancing has finished we have our normal hall slot back. We have been learning hockey and the boys and girls have been doing great work.  So far we have worked on gripping the stick, controlling a variety of objects with the stick, taking shots and passing. Take a look at some of the photos!

St. Fergal’s Feis

Today there was nerves and excitement as we had our dancing competition with Claire Dowling. The children all danced their two hand reel in front of the judge and I was so proud of everyone! This marks the end of Irish dancing for this year – thank you to Claire for her expertise!

Our sound this week is /y/. We pretend to eat yoghurt with a spoon. It’s brilliant to see so many children familiar with the Jolly Phonics songs – thank you parents! 

All for now.

Irish Dancing

We are so lucky to be doing Irish dancing with Claire Dowling. Our lessons will continue for the next 7 weeks and then we’ll have a feis! 

A last reminder to be at the school at 11.30 tomorrow for the library visit – we are on a tight schedule so we’ll be leaving at 11.30 sharp! 

All for now!

Starting sounds

Hello all and welcome back to school for our second term in Junior Infants!

We use the Jolly Phonics programme which details a multi sensory and active approach to the teaching of reading and writing.

We will begin with /s/  and do a different sound every week. As part of homework we will send home a sounds copy. Please practise the sound with your child as well as the action that accompanies the sound.

You can also play an I Spy game to spot words beginning with /s/ or call out a list of words to your child and get them to identify the one beginning with /s/.

A new sound will be added each week so please keep the sounds copies in the folders.IMG_3573.JPG

Our PE timetable has changed so from next week our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Apologies for the sudden change.

All for now!
