Mr Bramble in senior infants.

Mr Bramble is a new boy in Senior Infants. He arrived to Miss Murphy’s class and he was so sad. He has no friends or no where to live. He now goes home with a child every week. He came to school today all dressed for winter and even with a school bag. Thank you to Danila’s mum who knitted his hat, scarf and bag.

Miss Murphy and her 24 aspiring vets had the pleasure of visiting the well pet hospital.

A huge thank you to Darren, Susi and all their team who gave us such a huge warm welcome.

So here we are waiting to go in.

The reception area at the well pet hosital.

We listened to the receptionist take all the important details of pet and the injuries.

They even have a junior vet clinic. We had great fun in this area.

Some of us sat in the cat waiting area. They keep the cats and dogs in different areas…just incase!

Here is Darren, in the Dog Waiting area with a patient and their owner. We hope this dog is better soon. He was so well behaved.

We got to listen to Chewy’s heartbeat. It sounded “kinda weird” according to this young “vet”!

Chewy was in the dog’s consulation room. The cats have their own consultation room.

There were no cats in the surgery when we arrived so we used a toy one.

We saw the pre theatre/treatment room. In this room, the pets are prepared for theatre or procedures are carried out. They even had a bath for the pets!

Darrren showed us some of the equipment that he uses.

Next it was off to the operating theatre.

We got to see the X-ray machine and try on the lead gloves! They were just a bit heavy.

 

we meet 3 dogs who had to stay over night in the vets. They were very happy to see us.

This is the cat ward. They have different doors on their crates than the dogs.

Do you know why? We do!

 

Thank you to all at the well pet hospital who gave the children a wonderful experience at the pet hospital today. It is something they will remember for ever.

 

 

Junior Infants made Jelly today

Ms Murphy’s class was learning about hot and cold this week.

So we decided to make some jelly to keep us cool during the warm weather.

So after buying the jelly and of course some ice cream we got to work in the kitchen this morning!

We bought orange and strawberry jelly. We mixed them together to as we wanted to see what that flavour would taste like.

We cut the jelly into small pieces and placed it in a glass bowl.

We put the dissolved jelly into the freezer as we wanted it to set very fast!

It was too nice a day to eat inside so we packed up the bags and headed for the yard...
