Aistear is gone to Africa! Room 1, Junior Infants

In our English programme Over The Moon, Ella went to visit her granny in Africa. She had great fun visiting an African market, going on a safari trip and eating lots of African foods, especially the fresh fruit and vegetables. We set up an African market at the role play station. We made fruit and vegetable jigsaws. At the fine motor station we threaded shapes like the tribal jewellery for sale at the market. We also completed cut and stick activities. Finally at the art station we enjoyed printing different fruits. We also created polar bears and penguins.

World Book Day Celebrations 2023

World Book Day was a huge success here in St.Joseph’s Primary School. To celebrate World Book Day each child was given a World Book Day token to encourage reading . Every child could dress up as a favourite character from their favourite book and there was some fantastic costumes parading the school for the day . As a whole school we celebrated this day through a special announcement of DEAR time over the intercom . Classes were busy designing their own book covers as well as drawing their favourite characters . It was a positive experience for all and great effort was invested by parents, teachers and students . We all thoroughly enjoyed the day . Happy Reading !

The Stars Are Brightly Shining!

Well done to all the children in our school who each designed a star for our annual display in Gorey Shopping Centre. It looks wonderful! Be sure to visit and see if you can spot yours.
