Numbers + shapes + time = Senior Infant Fun!

We have had a super week this week using our maths eyes everywhere we went.  We had maths on yard when Karen called a number and we had to make sets of those numbers.  In P.E. we kept our maths eyes on when we had to make 2D shapes with our bodies – we worked […]

Wiggly, wriggly worms!

We have visitors to our class this week – wiggly, wriggly worms! One of the children brought in a fantastic worm farm and so off we went to dig for worms for it.  Back in the classroom we searched through the soil we collected from the school garden and counted the worms we found.  We […]

Hard working Senior Infants…

This week we have been learning about patterns in maths.  We know that if we want to extend any pattern we must repeat it.  Having looked at different types of patterns using shapes and colours we then set about making our own patterns using the pegboards.  Some of us used up to four colours in […]

News from Karen’s class

What a busy start to the year!  We have been learning to be reporters in the morning delivering our news and making sure we are using the key words “who, where, what and when.”  We are also trying to listen carefully so that we can ask questions that will give us even more information. We […]

Creepy crawlies!

This week in Senior Infants we have been learning about all the minibeasts we have in our gardens and school surroundings.  We looked at creatures such as ladybirds, flies, earwigs, centipedes, ants, beatles, slugs, woodlice and many more… Have a look at how our minibeast hunt went. Enjoy the weekend and perhaps have your own […]

Senior Infants’ Active Week

What a week we have had – it’s been so much fun!  We have had activities all week from the morning “Step it up” where children and adults have all been super in joining in with some exercise, to a huge school effort at marathon running, obstacle courses, football games, penalty shoot outs, and even […]

Teddies on tour in Senior Infants

As a treat for doing so well in group work and having a super líne we enjoyed a picnic with our teddies today.  We have spent some time learning about the food pyramid and healthy eating so Karen brought in some juicy fresh fruit for us to share.  We had a great time out in […]

Senior Infants this week…

We have had so much fun this week outside the classroom.  On Monday we had a lesson in playing African drums in the Halla.  We listened to a story and played drums alongside.  Each of us got to do an amazing drum solo as well as free drumming – it was so much fun. On […]

Senior Infants on tour…

Have a look at the photos from our school tour to Stonebrook Farm – we had a fantastic day!

Me, myself and I…

This week in Senior Infants we have worked really hard on creating portraits. We looked at portraits of lots of different people and then got the chance to do one of someone in our class. To make the portraits really good we had to include lots of details like eyebrows, the right colour eyes and […]

Books Books Books

Over the past number of weeks Senior Infants have been working hard on their very own books. Working in groups they had to become illustrators, authors, editors and function as part of a team. We have come a long way from the drafts we produced a number of weeks ago and now each group has […]

Fun reading times in Karen’s class

We would like to say a big “thank you” to Carol who came in to read two stories to us this morning.  Carol read Stuck and Incredible Book Eating Boy both written by Oliver Jeffers.  We really enjoyed listening to the stories and seeing the pictures.  Why not ask the children a little bit about these stories? […]

It’s all about the money!

This week in Senior Infants we have been learning about money.  We learned that not all countries use the same money and even within Europe not everyone uses the Euro. The children learned about the eight different coins that we use – can you name them?  They also practised combining coins to make different values. […]

Spóirt agus spraoi i rith SnaG…

Bhí Seachtain na Gaeilge iontach againn ar scoil.  Rinne gach duine iarracht an-mhaith agus bhí na páistí go léir ar fheabhas.  Bhí tráth na gceist againn chomh maith le ceolchoirm agus siúloid freisin. Tá súil againn go leanfaidh sibh ar aghaidh ag caint as Gaeilge go minic.  Maith sibh! We had a super week for […]
