Junior Infants have had some special visitors over the past couple of weeks as part of our topic “People Who Help Us”.
On Friday 15th April the Gardaí came to visit us.
Two Gardaí visited to tell us all about their job.
We learned about the Garda uniform
We learned about all of the items on the Garda’s belt.
We saw the lights flashing and counted how many blue lights were on the car. Can you remember how many there were boys and girls?
We even got to hear the siren. It was very loud and we had to put our fingers in our ears!
On Thursday 21st of March Nurse Sharon came into school to tell us all about her job.
Nurse Sharon told us how she helped sick people in hospital get better.
Nurse Sharon showed us how to use a torch to see if someone has a sore throat or infection.
We had a chance to be nurses and patients too!
We had our temperatures taken….
…we gave Ms Tobin an injection…
…we used syringes and wore masks…
…and Nurse Sharon showed us how to wrap bandages properly and make a sling.
On Thursday 27th April “Postman Pat” came to visit.
We learned all about being a postman and how the letters are sorted and then delivered to our houses.
The postman’s bike is very heavy and has three big bags on it to carry letters.
Junior Infants and The Jolly Postman.
Thank you so much to all of our visitors. We really enjoyed your visits and learned lots from you.
