Future engineers hard at work.
Spring has arrived and the Junior Infants have been busy using their green fingers.
Junior Infants are well on their way to becoming fantastic readers. They have been working really hard at blending sounds to make words. They are now so good at reading that they beat their teacher in the decoding competition every single day.
The Sam Maguire Cup came to visit the boys and girls in Bayside recently.James McCarthy brought the cup and the children had the opportunity to ask him lots of questions about what it takes to become a Dublin footballer. A lot of boys and girls went home inspired that afternoon.
It was a really exciting day and we all dressed in blue for the occasion.
On Tuesday the 20th of October all of the pupils in our school went on a nature walk. The Junior Infants had a fantastic time. Ms. Burke from the Green School Commitee gave us all Hi Vis vests so that cars could see us. We wear them when we walk to and from school now.
On our walk we spotted lots of signs of Autumn. We collected leaves,helicopters and conkers. We also saw lots of animals. We even found a fairy door.
We all want to thank our parents and relatives for their sponsorship money.
Welcome to Ms Quinn’s class
Welcome to Ms Martin’s class
PABS (Parents Association Bayside School) are holding a coffee hour for the parents and guardians of Junior Infants on Thursday 11th September, 11am – 12 noon, in the school hall. We hope many of you will be able to attend as it is a nice opportunity to meet other parents/guardians.
We have started work on our next Green Flag. This year we will be trying to win a flag for Travel and Transport.
We have set up a new Green Team and we went out together on a walkability audit with Sandra Pokrant from An Táisce.
We are trying to establish a safe walking route to school where people might carpool and then Park n’ Stride from Bayside Shopping Centre. As the name suggest this would mean parking your car at the shopping centre and then walking to school from there. This would hopefully mean less traffic around the school in the mornings and afternoons.
On our walk we discovered lots of interesting things
We are very lucky to have a safe pathway from the shops to the school. There is plenty of room for people and buggys to walk along. On our walk we heard the birds singing and saw some lovely trees and plants.
We think that it would be really super if some families that travel to school by car might consider having a go at “Park n’ Stride” from Bayside shopping centre, especially coming into the lovely summer weather
The Green Team
The Junior Infants have been very busy in December. They prepared for the Nativity play, they learned many carols and they produced some lovely artwork.
We had a great time during science week. We did loads of experiments. Here are a few pictures.
We did lots of Halloween Art. Cats, ghosts, and scary castles were to be seen in all the Junior Infant rooms. Here are some of the pumpkins we found.!!
We went on a nature walk today. We saw beautiful trees with Autumn colours of golden brown, green, yellow ,red and orange.
