Senior Infants 1 (Ms. A. Kindlon)

Fáilte go Naíonáin Shinsearacha (1)!

April

Science Week

We had so much fun conducting experiments with the help of some parents. We tasted some questionable oranges with baking soda, made vibrant lava lamps and even learned about the water cycle. We are looking forward to see what else Science Week has in store for us!

     

March

World Book Day

We had lots of fun celebrating World Book Day this month. We all dressed up as our favourite characters from various picture books. We enjoyed sharing the plot, characters and illustrations in our books. If you want a book recommendation, you know where to look! You may be able to spot some familiar faces below, if you look hard enough!

February

Valentine’s Day

We had fun creating some special hearts for our family members and friends. We wanted to give someone special a treat. We were lucky our heart monsters didn’t gobble up the maltesers before we gave them out!

 

Gaeilge 

We had lots of ‘spraoi’ making some ‘éadaí’ for our Gaeilge lessons. We enjoyed doing the washing and putting ‘éadaí ar an líne’!

            

 

January

Our Adventure to Space!

We kick-started 2022 by learning all about space through play, as part of Aistear. We loved the role play area because it gave us a chance to act as astronauts and aliens, on super space adventures. We even made space passports and completed pre-launch checklists before blasting off into space.

Check out where all the magic happened below…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well-being Week: 

We enjoyed so many wonderful activities based on promoting our well-being. We made paper chains based on our strengths, which involved everyone sharing good qualities about one another. We went to the local playground. We also read a lovely story called ‘Gratitude is My Superpower’ and made a Gratitude Tree based on all of the things we are grateful for. Finally, we watched a magic show at the end of the week. Lots of fun, laughter and happiness this month!

December

We had so much fun participating in Christmas activities this month. We completed a Santa Dash in our festive attire.

 

We had a Christmas party on the last day of school. We celebrated some birthdays and played musical chairs. Everyone was super excited for the Christmas holidays.

We recorded our Christmas concert. We worked really hard to make this video special. Although it was tiring, we think we pulled off a pretty great show. Click the video below to see what we got up to!

November

Art

This month, we did some lovely Christmas art based on Winter. We used lots of different colours to make a beautiful evening sky. We cut out lots of shapes to make the parts of the snowmen. Finally, we added some personality to our snowmen by decorating them. We love painting in Senior Infants! Here’s how they turned out…

Literacy

We worked really hard on our sounds this month. We love working together and using our whiteboards and markers to take down words. We enjoyed identifying real and nonsense ‘ou’ words. You can’t trick us in Senior Infants!

         

October

In October, we had lots of fun working on themes like Autumn and Halloween. Have a look at some of the interesting things we got up to over the last few weeks below…

Leaf rubbings of our lovely autumn trees!

              

 

Celebrating Halloween, dressing up, constructing haunted houses, making play dough halloween figures and making all sorts of magic potions!

 

We had so much fun participating in the activities organised by our Parents’ Association. Big thanks again to all involved in the organisation of these brilliant activities!
