While playing our phonics boardgame, we practised turn taking, rolling the die, counting the dots on the die, moving forward the correct amount of spaces on the board and saying our sounds. We also learnt that we can't win every time! This is a hard lesson to learn, but an important one! 

 

 

Our junior infants have been learning how to identify, copy and extend patterns. We like to use concrete materials to practise our numeracy skills. 

 

We are delighted to introduce our Green School committee for the new school year, 2023 - 2024. The committee has already created the school litter-picking rota, has chosen 'Power Rangers' for each class and will soon begin working on our Global Citizenship Marine Environment flag. We are looking forward to a great, green year ahead!

We are delighted to welcome our new Junior Infants to St. Mary's BNS. They have been busy painting, learning their first two letter sounds and enjoying Aistear time in the afternoons. Here's to a great school-year ahead!
