Welcome to Senior Infants 2!
We had a super busy December in Senior Infants 2….
At the beginning of the month, our class elves Holly and Fred arrived and brought the class an advent calendar. They weren’t too mischievous this year luckily but got up to very funny things at night!!! At the beginning, Fred and Holly didn’t know how to do a cursive ‘e’ and thanks to the demonstration of Senior Infants, they learnt how to do it pretty quickly.
In Maths we learnt about the number 8. We did lots of sums and played Maths games. Later in the month, we learned how to tell the time in one hour intervals. The children loved using the clocks.
In English, we continued with the same reader from last month. We worked hard on our cursive writing.
In Science, we learnt about floating and sinking as well as the uses of water. We also did a fun experiment on keeping ice lollies cold.
In SPHE, we learnt about dental hygiene. We used new vocabulary such as enamel and tooth decay and all got to take home a toothbrush from the Moo Crew company.
In Gaeilge we learnt lots of new phrases e.g. ‘Nollaig Shona Duit/ Daoibh’.
Overall we had a really productive month. The highlight of the month was definitely Christmas concert week. Not only did the children enjoy their concert but we got to go on a Zoom Call with Santa. To top it off, we then found Dancer in the Viking shed on the Astro and got to pet him. What a month!!!!! From all of us in Senior Infants 2, we wish you all a safe and peaceful Christmas break.
Here are some photos from the month:
