School Tour Senior Infants

We has great fun at Karibu Farm for our school tour. We went on a tractor ride and go carts. We played in the playground and fed the animals. It was a super day full of fun!      

Healthy Eating

We have been learning about the food pyramid and different food groups. As part of Aistear we tasted food from the fruit and vegetable group.

We enjoyed learning about weight in Senior Infants this week. We had to estimate how many cubes would be the same weight as objects and some of the results were very surprising! Have a look at our photos.

Fabric Crafts Cancelled
