Ms O McCarthy.

We discussed how we are all different and unique with regard to fingerprints, hair, colour, eyes, skin, colour,
heights, families, names, country our parents were born in etc. We discussed
how a referee can give a player a red card if someone is not playing fairly or
is saying nasty words/being mean during a game.

We looked at Jeff the Ref’s red card. We  decided we are also allowed to put up our own hands and say-------STOP---- walk
away and tell an adult in charge if someone is mocking/or saying nasty words to
us for any reason. We discussed times in our own classroom that we may have
hurt others without realising it just because someone might look/sound or
behave differently to what we are used to.

We learnt about Easter in Poland with Sylvia one of our mums from Poland. With her help we learnt how to prepare and decorate eggs.

Ms Goulding. Senior Infants.

We are all the same on the inside. The children drew and decorated their handprints...WE all have
the same shaped hand but as different decorations show we are all unique.
