This term in science we have been busy learning a lot about spiders. We made hand print spiders.


Mathematicians in the making

We have been finding out all about number this term  and here we are working in groups to make our numbers using lollipop sticks. We had great fun and learned lots.



We are different!!!

We are each individual and unique. We discussed the ways in which we differ. We looked in a mirror and drew a self portrait

Fairytale Sequencing

We have been learning about lots of new fairytales here in Senior Infants and just to show how well we now know our fairytales, we sequenced pictures based on the fairytales. Here are some pictures of us hard at work demonstrating our sequencing skills.



We have been discussing the season of Autumn and the changes it brings. We made Autumn trees using autumn colours. We also made hedgehogs by sticking Autumn leaves on their spines.



10@ 10

Here in senior infants we have been getting active every day and enjoying our 10@10. The children are loving the active breaks during the day! It gets our bodies moving and helps keeps our concentration. We plan to keep it going all year!





Spatial Awareness

We have been learning about Spatial Awareness and we used these words in PE and played games. We also learned the song ‘Hokey Cokey’.We had great fun and did not know we were doing maths!  


Houses and Homes

We have been learning about Houses & Homes. We learned all the language associated with different types of homes, looked at materials used in constructing homes and designed and made their own homes.







Spring Nature Walk

Senior infants finally got out to explore after the long winter! They went on a spring nature walk to investigate if spring had finally arrived! 

They are happy to confirm that it is here and they really hope that the sunshine is here to stay. They noticed many signs of spring including buds on the trees , flowers blooming and a nice warm breeze!





The Ugly Duckling

Senior Infants love listening to stories, especially fairytales! They love the story of the Ugly Duckling and had great fun retelling it themselves! They also had great fun making their very own ugly duckling, who was a swan after all!




Pyjama Party
Senior Infants got a lovely treat recently in recognition of all their hard work. The children were invited to come to school dressed in their pyjamas and bring their favourite teddy and blanket. We had great fun! 




Disco Dome

We loved dancing around in the disco dome for active school’s week




Check out the fabulous seahorses we created in art.
