Balance Bikes

We’d like to thank the Waterford Sports Partnership for lending us a set of balance bikes. The children in junior and senior infants had great fun using them.

As the name suggests, balance bikes are a great way for budding cyclists to develop confidence and balance while feeling in control of their speed.

The Life Cycle of a Butterfly

The children in senior infants have been learning all about the life cycle of a butterfly. Mr. Kelly gave each senior infant class some caterpillars to take care of.

Today the children in room 8 were very excited to see that one of their butterflies had emerged from its chrysalis.
