We will be learning all about transport for the next two weeks and our new Aistear topic is 'The Train Station'. Some of the words we will be learning are: train station, train driver, schedule, ticket master, platform, single ticket, return ticket and carriage.

The children will be learning all about the different types of transport so you can take a look at some of these types of transport and chat about what they could be used for!

A huge thank you and happy summer!

Hey everyone,  I just want to say thank you so much for such a wonderful two years. The children are a credit to all the parents and each child should be very proud of themselves because they have come so far since starting in Junior Infants two years ago.  They are all so unique and full of personality and have given me so much happiness and laughs every day. I'll miss them hugely but I know they will love the new challenges and exciting changes in First Class.  Always feel free to pop into me whenever you're passing and good luck in the future! Jessica ☺
