Listen to the songs for these sounds below:



Go on an Autumn walk in the garden/ park and collect different leaves that have fallen or interesting things for our nature table. Pick 3 leaves/ items to take in for our nature table. What signs of Autumn can you see ?

Using the leaves that you have collected sort them into different categories by shape, colour, size or other criteria. How many different ways can you sort them.


Practise the rhyme and clap out the rhythm.

Jack and Jill 

Jack and Jill went up the hill,

To fetch a pail of water.

Jack fell down and broke his crown,

And Jill came tumbling after.

Pick up arrangements: 

Junior Infants A & B will now be collected via the gate to the left of the office. This is to avoid too much traffic at pick-up time. From Monday 9th September Junior Infants will be collected at 1:40pm.


P.E. is timetabled for Tuesdays. Your child will need to wear their P.E. uniform (runners and tracksuit bottoms). We will also be running/jogging/walking 1km each day (weather permitting) so please ensure your child wears runners/suitable footwear everyday.



Sounds: Practise ‘s’ sound. Take note of words beginning with ‘s’ sound.

Colours: point out various colours, ask children to name them. Play I spy using colour.


Sounds: revise ‘a’ sound. (see link above). Take note of words beginning with ‘a’ sound.

30th August 2019

Congratulations to all our Junior Infant children for a fantastic first day. We hope they enjoyed it as much as we have!
Please note:
There is a severe nut allergy in infants so please be aware when packing lunches. Nuts are strictly forbidden, including any chocolate in any form such as pastries/sandwiches.
Healthy lunches only. Please ensure your child can open and close their own bags, drinks and lunchboxes. Peel any fruit e.g. oranges, as your child will not have time to do this.
Re-usable bottles with sports caps are recommended for school. Plain, one compartment, lunch boxes are easier for children to use and eliminates the use of cling film or tin-foil.
Yoghurts are best eaten at home!! They are time- consuming, messy and cannot be closed if needed. (This include Frubes). See Parent Booklet for lunch ideas.
Thank you for your co-operation.
Here are some photos of your children enjoying their first days of primary school:
