Visiting the fish and enjoying the sunshine in Bray!

The children went on their school tour to Sealife in Bray yesterday and after properly chatting to them today they all seemed to have loved it! Some people liked the seahorses, others were so excited to see the 'real' Nemo and Dory fish and one child said they thought the sting ray's smiley face was funny. A lot of children thought the sharks were very cool and a couple of children said the bus was their favourite!



































They were given a lot of information about the different types of sea life in the aquarium but they could remember a huge amount of it, which is great!
 




























I was very proud of the children on their trip because they did good listening and stayed together in their pairs, well done!

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 ☺
