May and June

June 19, 2018

During the month of May we had visitors to our school from a teacher training college in America. Kelsey came to our class to observe us. She told us all about Ohio where she lives. We also learned about the Statue of Liberty in New York and made our very own liberty crowns with Kelsey.

Throughout May we learned all about capacity and electricity. We did our very own experiments including a static electricity experiment using balloons.

At the end of May both classes went on our school tour to the Maradyke. We had a great time, and particularly liked travelling to and from the centre in a double decker bus!

In June we did a class scavenger hunt in PE.... we got very competitive!

Just over a week left in Senior Infants now, and we're really looking forward to our summer holidays and to moving to First Class in September.

We have had great fun practicing our gymnastics skills during P.E. time and have been learning about construction and homes in class. The boys have been busy making all kinds of constructions with lego and bricks!

February - Spring has Sprung!

February 28, 2018

During the month of February we have been learning all about Spring. We learned about the conditions needed to sustain new plant and animal life. Last week the boys planted seeds and are waiting patiently for flowers to bloom in class. We also made flower prints using forks, cue tips and other household items! We celebrated Valentines Day by making clay hearts and writing cards to our Mums and Dads. 

During morning playtime we have been exploring magnetism alongside our regular play stations. The boys had great fun finding magnetic objects around our classroom. 

The month of January

January 31, 2018

Throughout January we have been learning all about the world around us. We spent some time visiting different places on Google Earth. We had fun locating our school and doing a 'me on the map' activity.

We also learned all about the weather in our world as Gaeilge and made a promise to protect our world through recycling and other environmentally friendly practices!
