Our Junior classroom caters for Junior Infants, Senior Infants and First Class. The class teacher has a particular interest in drama and uses this medium to develop literacy and numeracy in the pupils in a fun and interactive way. We value the importance of play based learning at an early age and enjoy watching developments in the imaginative and cognitive abilities of each child.

Project, group, pair and individual work ensure the senior classes at Black Valley NS enjoy a broad spectrum of lessons, taught through progressive methodologies. There is an emphasis on active learning, using the classroom and the unique Valley environment to acces the most progressive elements of the curriculum. The Senior class teacher uses her experience in music and theatre to promote the talents of the students. They learn an eclectic mix of songs and tunes and this year even performed a Christmas pantomime written especially for each child.
