Seomra Shona Junior - Our year in pictures 2012
Seomra Shona had Our own class tour to the Aquarium! It was incredible to see all of the under water sea life. The children were amazed. We had fun at the park too and had our lunch out. We topped off our day with a walk on the Salthill Prom. It was a beautiful day...see for yourself!!!
School Tour to Loughwell Pet Farm with the Junior and Senior Infants...what a spectacular day! We saw lots of animals, played on bouncing castles and we went on go-carts. Super day out...the pictures prove it!
International Week...we really enjoyed touring the world in the hall! We have Canada, Croatia, Angola and Ireland represented in our class.
FUNDERLAND...school doesn't get much better than this!!!
A very special thank you to the staff at Funderland for organising such a wonderful event for the extra special people in Galway. We had a super day!!!
Simplicity at its finest...making our own sandwiches
From the garden to the table...making rhubarb custard. YUMMY!!!
Swimming has started in Seomra SHona
We are going swimming this term...and boy do we have some super fish! We have only had one swimming day out so far-but watch this space! As you will see the TY students from the JES are terrific--thanks lads!
GET Autism Awareness Day
We had an excellent day celebrating our our special GET Autism Awareness Day! The whole school wore blue, we had blue skies and blue balloons! We collected donations that went towards GAP. We had a brilliant day celebrating our own special uniqueness! Have a look! :-)
Activity Week 2012
We took a trip out in our community and we learned about road safety. We went to our local library; The Westside Library. Then after looking at lots of books, we got hungry and we walked to McDonald's for some lunch. We had a great day out!
Horse Riding at Claremount! We enjoyed our ride out on a beautiful bright sunny Spring day!
Music with First Class-it was fantastic! :-) The children loved the sing song and the involvement with the musical instruemnts!
We started our horse riding this term at Rockmount Stables in Claregalway. We have some great little jockeys from Seomra Shona Junior! The children were fascinated by the mild tempered animals and our TY students from the Jes are super helpers.
Teddy Bear Hospital
On January 26Th, we went to the Teddy Hospital at NUIG. Our teddy bears got checked by the doctors. Some experienced xrays; others had MRIs. But we are happy to report that all of the teddy bears are well and healthy again. As you will see from our pictures, we had a great day out! :-)
Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles
We went to watch a bubble show with the Junior infants. It was great fun, we saw lots of bubbles, big and small and even some with smoke!!

Our little gardeners, but we are missing our little flower girl Ellen, she was sick! :-(
We have had a very busy start to the year getting to know each other, learning all about Autumn, and planting bulbs in our new garden. We can't wait to watch the daffodils grow! We are looking forward to our mid-term break, but first we have a few Halloween tricks up our sleeve!
Welcome to Seomra Shona Junior...the special class for children with Autism!
We are delighted to be in our brand new extention...it is simply beautiful! We have a bright, spacious classroom, purpose built gross motor and multi-sensory rooms and most importantly, we have 6 gorgeous happy children in our class! We are delighted to welcome 3 new Junior Infant students to our class and of course we are thrilled to welcome back our 3 past pupils, who have grown so much over the summer holidays!
We have so many things to look forward to this term. We have already begun Music Therapy, where we are singing along with John from Music Therapy Ireland each week. We are cooking up a storm ever Thursday in the kitchen and we are learning about the season of Autumn through songs, poems and visual arts. We are also managing to squeeze in the necessary academics into our day too! ;-)
Pop down to see us and say hello! Watch this space for pics and more information on our class!
By for now... and thanks for visiting!
