Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!!
Saint Patrick’s Day Badges
Senior infants made beautiful Saint Patrick’s Day Badges this week.
Saint Patrick’s Day Sorting
Some of the Senior Infant boys decided to sort some of our math game materials into green, white and orange/yellow for Saint Patrick’s Day! They made a little leprechaun village using the objects.
The Library bus came to school. The children were so excited to go out and visit the library bus. Senior Infants listened to a lovely story called ‘When I say Ooh You say Aah’. Mary the librarian read this to the class and they then chose a book of their own to bring home and read.
Look at this lovely pitcher plant. It is a carnivorous plant and it was enjoying a yummy fly for its lunch that day!
Love is in the Air
Senior Infants made some gorgeous Valentines art pieces. It’s Amazing what you can make with just one sheet of painted paper. Have a look and see…
Love you to pieces cards
Love Heart Pictures!
And finally individual art work using the left over paper. Well done Senior infants!
Yes We Can
Senior Infants have been thinking about all the Amazing things they can do and learning that everyone has different talents. Look at our fabulous ‘I Can’ Books!
Aistear– The Polar Regions
Aistear is in full swing in the infant classrooms this term. We have been learning all about the Arctic and the Antarctic.
The children have been explorers and scientists in the Research center. They have been constructing life sized igloos and making igloos from paper. In our STEM area the children have been figuring out how to build an igloo using sugar cubes.
Happy New Year from Senior Infants!
Christmas Jumper Day!
Senior Infants braved the cold in their Christmas jumpers to take this lovely winter picture.
Senior Infants Toy Show
Senior Infants held their own Toy Show in school to mark the day of the Late Late Toy Show. Every child brought in their favourite toy or game to demonstrate to the class. We even stopped to watched some Christmas Ads in between!
Senior Infants took part in the school show last Thursday. Here are a few snaps of some very happy children after finishing their performance. Senior Infants play was called Away in a Manger.#
Out of this World!
As part of our Space theme this month, Senior Infants built Space Rockets from Recycled materials.
Senior Infants had lots of fun at Halloween. We had a dress up day, with lots of spooky costumes. We played eye spy with our Frozen hands and went ‘fishing for ‘eyeballs” in some worms!!
Senior Infants were engineers for a day. They were building ramps and testing them using conkers that they had collected for Autumn.
3D Shape sorting
Colour Matching game– Senior Infants were matching their colour words to their colours.
Cuddles is our class monkey. He chooses one child everyday to be his helper in class. Cuddles is looking very cool here wearing Charlie’s sunglasses!
Look what we made!
Senior Infants have been practising ‘counting on’ on the number line.
We were making numbers with our Marla.
Look at our lovely art work!
We took a line for a walk after reading the story Gregory and the Magic Line.
Here is a picture of me so you can see. I’m a Senior Infant as happy as can be! These are our self portraits from the first day of Senior Infants.
