Numeracy week on Money

Numeracy week kicked off on the 15th may and we have been learning all about the topic of money. We investigated coins, we separated and sorted the coppers , we used magnets to pick them up, we found out which european countries the coins came from, we took rubbings, we stamped coins with ink, we played shopping games and used the cash registers. At breaktime on Friday 19th we bought our school lunch for 10 c from the shopkeeper Michael in the Parents Room.

We had great fun as well as learning a lot! We are continuing our work in class this week and we are doing very hard sums about coins and money too! Help the children  practise at home and in the shops! . If you have any spare coins around the house (especially brown copper coins) help your children to have fun counting them!

Easter Hunt Tuesday April 4th

What a beautiful morning we got for the Infants Easter Hunt! We had a lovely walk to Chimney Park with our very own pink Easter Bunny and Melanie and Emma did a great job in organising the event with Catherine. Thanks to everyone! The Infants had a wonderful time and loved the chocolate eggs!
