Infants School Trip

Junior and Senior Infants had an enjoyable day out today at the Copper Coast Mini Farm.  They got to see different animals big and small, had fun in the playground and indoor sandpit and drove their mini tractors!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Infants – Seed Sowing

Over the next couple of days infants will be bringing home a cup planted with seeds as part of the GIY and Innocent drinks Big Grow campaign – www.innocentbiggrow.com

Peas, tomatoes and cress seeds will be planted.  Here are some tips for how to look after the plants at home over the coming months.

 

 

 

Induction

Parents are invited to an informative ‘Induction Meeting’ for parents only, in Ballyneale National School next Thursday the 14th June at 2.15pm.  This informal gathering will give you the opportunity to meet with other parents of new Junior Infant pupils enrolling for the 2018/2019 school year.  Whilst discussing the daily routine of the school, we will endeavour to address all queries or concerns that you may have.

The following publication from the INTO is a useful resource for the parents of new entrants to primary school.
