We have had a very busy term in First Class green! Take a look....
We had a very exciting visit from the ice-cream van... it was very tasty!
Sports Day and Flag raising:
We had a wonderful day for our sports day this year. The weather made it even better! We cooled down with ice-pops. We also enjoyed taking part in the flag raising ceremony. We are very proud to raise the Amber, Pride and Active Flags in our school.
School Tour to Kildare Farm
On the 8th of June we set off to Kildare Farm. We had the best day on the bus and the train! We played crazy golf, fed the animals and had a delicious lunch too!
Maths for fun!
We are so lucky to have some amazing parents coming into our classroom to teach us maths games. We play these games with the parents every Tuesday morning. Thank you to everyone who has helped out :-)
What have we been learning about?
We have been learning about different foods this year. We made butter using whipped cream. We took turns shaking the jar until it turned into butter! We tasted the yummy homemade butter on a cracker.
We have also been taking our reading books outside and reading in our lovely school grounds. We love reading outside in the sunshine!
We have been spending more time outside during our lessons. We made some little clay insects outside in the forest area :-)
In First Class green, we are very passionate about keeping our school clean and green! Lucan Tidy Towns joined us on a litter pick around the school. We really enjoyed chatting to the members of the Tidy Town's and finding out how we can help :-)
On Friday the 16th of December we took part in 'Silly Hat Day'. With the help of our families and friends we created an assortment of hats! Check out our pictures below to see the amazing creations in First Class Green.
Wellbeing Week 2023
We celebrated Wellbeing Week from the 24th- 28th of April. We took part in different activities each day such as mindful colouring, yoga, walking outside, baking and dancing! We really enjoyed this week and felt calm and relaxed after.
We also took a walk down to King John's Bridge. It is the oldest stone bridge in Ireland! The children enjoyed sketching the bridge in their copies.
Here are some pictures from Esker loves books. We spent lots of time reading. We loved having our parents in the classroom reading books in Polish, Urdu, Romanian and English. We had our assembly performance in January. We sang a song called Gung hay fat choy for the Lunar New Year.
Pancake Tuesday brought some yummy pancakes to our classroom too!
We were absolutely delighted to see snow on our yard in December in here in Esker. We wrapped up in hats, scarves and gloves and had a fabulous time making snowballs and snowmen in the yard!
Science experiments, junk art, iPads, construction and drama... we are always busy!
On Friday the 18th of November, we celebrated the different cultures here in Esker ETNS. The children wore traditional outfits and colours to celebrate their countries. Take a look below to see what countries and cultures we celebrated in First Green!
We had so much fun today dressing up in different costumes and fancy dress before the Halloween break. Our theme this year was 'Heroes and Villains' and the children and staff did not disappoint! We spent the day looking at the different costumes, going on a Halloween parade and having a Halloween disco and movie in our classroom.
Look at our cool outfits!
First Class Green enjoying the Halloween parade:
The children have had a busy few weeks getting settled here in first class. We are enjoying our new classroom and our new friends who have joined our class. We have been busy very everyday in our classroom. We have spent the last few weeks learning about Autumn, Harvest and growth. The children have enjoyed exploring these topics during aistear. Look at some of our pictures below!
Keeping active and enjoying the outdoors!
First Class Green have been enjoying keeping active everyday in school. The children have enjoyed working on their ball skills during PE. They have also enjoyed playing outside when the weather permits!
We were so lucky to have storyteller Niall De Búrca share some of his hilarious stories with us! The children just couldn't stop laughing !!
Thank you to all of the parents for logging into our Winter Show today, we hope you enjoyed it! Please enjoy sharing this with your families!
It's been a busy month in Senior Infants Green. We met out new teacher, Emma and we are back with all of our friends from Junior Infants! Take a look at some of our activities over the last few weeks.
We start every day with Maths centres.
Then get stuck into playtime! This month we have been learning all about the farm. We have been writing about what we plan to do every day and use lots of farm words. We visit the farm shop & cafe, dig for animals in the sandpit, create our own farm in small world and build impressive machines and houses for the farm in the lego area. We have even learnt how the farmer harvests his crops - and have gotten to see wheat and barley up close!
We have even squeezed in a little time for some Art! Look at how creative we are!
We have been lucky to spend lots of time outdoors in the sunshine, long may it last!
We stay active even when the sun won't shine - and we multitask doing an RTE 10@10 as Gaeilge!

We were the star performers at our Learn Together Assembly on Friday! We have been learning all about Minibeasts for the last six weeks, from Frogs to Butterflies and everything in between!
Did you know that Caterpillars only have 6 legs? Bees communicate by dancing with each other and a Queen Bee can live for nearly 5 years!
We have planted sunflowers to help save the Bees too! Take a look at our performance!
