Partnering Children on their Developmental Journey



In Junior Infants, we love the film “Frozen”, so we decided to base our Science class on freezing and melting on a “Frozen” theme. We created colourful Elsa hands, filled them with interesting bits and bobs and froze them.We then had to think of ways of melting them. We used warm water, the radiators and even a hairdryer! We learned lots about changing liquids to solids and back to liquids again!Frozen Hand

Last of the Snowflakes!


Due to the recent dusting of snow we received, Third Class was inspired to create these cute and colourful pictures.
