Fáilte go Naíonáin Shinsearacha (2)
October was a spooktacular month for us in Senior Infants! We ended the month with a great week of Halloween activities. We had a great time participating in the games our Parents Association organised, we made ghostly Halloween treats and of course dressed up in amazing costumes. One highlight of the week was when the class had Bairín Breac. To say it went down a storm would be an understatement!
Earlier in the month we had a super week of maths activities, including a 2D shape hunt in the school garden. We also learned all about the trees of Ireland and spent time outside collecting and examining leaves. We completed our GAA lessons and learned all about spiders in science. Wishing everyone a great mid term break and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again in November.
A huge welcome back to school to all of our new Senior Infants! We had a great month settling back into school, reconnecting with our friends and welcoming two new girls to our class. This month we’ve been revising all our Jolly Phonics sounds, revising adding up to 5 in maths, learning all about Mé Féin in Gaeilge and discussing the body parts and how to keep ourselves healthy in science. We took part in a workshop called ‘The Squirrel Who Worried’ with author Katie O’Donoghue and began GAA lessons with Jay. We also studied the Fauvist artist Henri Matisse and created some beautiful artwork inspired by him. Take a look at some of the fun activities we got up to below!
