Senior Infants- Ms. Casey

Aistear

Senior Infants love learning through play! We have enjoyed role play, junk art, construction, and play-doh stations so far this year. We have a class full of expert puzzle and tangram-makers! Hands-on literacy and numeracy activities are also a big hit. Our teamwork skills have been top notch!

   

         

      

 

  

Christmas

Well done to our Senior Infants for putting on a wonderful Christmas Carol Service on Thursday December 19th in the school P.E. Hall. We really enjoyed rehearsing and performing songs and poems with the other Senior Infant classes! Thanks to all the family members and friends who came to support on the day! Wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas and a happy and healthy new year!

 

We also welcomed Jingles the Elf into our classroom this December.

 

Halloween

We had so much fun getting dressed for Halloween! We learned about Halloween Traditions, and the best ways to stay safe at Halloween, as well as making spooky artwork and learning poems called 'Pumpkin Time' and 'Skeleton Parade'.

 

 

Our Sponsored Walk

We had such a great time on our sponsored walk to Shandon Park. We took part in a nature trail before playing in the playground with the other Senior Infant classes!

    

Autumn

Check out our lovely Autumn artwork! We made leaf collages, using tissue paper, and have been learning lots of words associated with the season.

  

   

GAA

We are delighted that Mark from St. Brendan's GAA Club returned to help us develop our football and hurling skills in Term 1!

     

Sports Day 2019

Our medal winners for the 100m sprint and hurdles. Well done to all the boys and girls!

We had beautiful weather for our sports day in Dalymount Park and the boys and girls really enjoyed taking part in the various activities; hurdles, 100m sprint, egg-and-spoon race, basketball, three-legged race, sack race, parachute games and free play!  

 

Butterfly Garden Spring 2019

We had the very exciting task of looking after five caterpillars and setting them free when they became butterflies. During this process we learned all about the life cycle of a butterfly and the children loved naming our butterflies and keeping an eye on their development each day.

School Tour 2018/19

Junior Infants really enjoyed their first school tour to PJs Playcentre! The fun-filled day included Go-Karting, a 3-Tier playframe, a disco room and they even went home with bears they made themselves! A big thank you to the parents who came along to help out.

Violin lessons 2018/2019

The boys and girls have been putting their heart and soul into learning the violin for the past year and it's really paying off! They can't wait for their parents to come and have a listen at the end of the year.
