Junior & Senior Infants 2017\2018
National Tree Day
Here are some pic of Seniors investigating all our beautiful school trees. We saw a spider eating a fly and the cows enjoyed learning about the Ash and Sequia trees! Susie and Keelin ( who's mum is called Susan) found a tree whose name was Susan also!
After we looked at our beautiful trees we explored different leaf shapes and textures. We then did some leaf rubbings which we loved!
JI Winter Welly Walk
Junior Infants enjoyed a Winter Welly Walk in December.
Infants took great care to write their letters to Santa!
Infants using iPads
Our infants have enjoyed using our bank of iPads during the year.
Aistear - The Optician
Junior infants learned all about the optician through play. Some even discovered that they needed glasses!
Our taste investigation
Junior infants tasted foods that were sweet, sour, bitter and salty to see which they liked or disliked.
JI Planted Seed Potatoes
Junior infants planted seed potatoes in March. They have grown very well in the recent warm weather.
Junior Infants reading with Sixth class
Ms.O'Hea's Sixth class have been visiting Junior Infants weekly since Christmas during D.E.A.R. (Drop everything and read) time. They have been reading to and with the infants.
Infants looked out for summer seasonal changes as they went for a summer saunter followed by a picnic in our beautiful sensory garden.
JI Camogie girls
Here are some of our Junior Infants who play camogie. They are delighted with their training in school which has started recently with GAA coach Gavin - thank you!
Senior Infants created some Under the Sea artwork using crepe paper and baking cases
SI School Tour
On May 28th, Senior Infants went to The Glen Resource Centre. They did lots of fun activities like Roller Racers, Snow Tubing, Moonwalkers, Space Hoppers, Obstacle Courses, Bouncy Castle and the Bungee Trampoline! They enjoyed their lunch after a busy and fun filled day. Ms Collins' Senior Infants voted for their favourite activity on the school tour. We then made a bar chart to show our results. Snow Tubing was a clear favourite!
JI digging up our seed potatoes
In June, Ms.Moynihan and Michael, our caretaker, kindly helped Junior Infants dig up the seed potatoes they had planted. They were amazed at how many were there and brought home a bagful for dinner!
JI camogie girls
Here are some of the girls who play camogie together for Sliabh Rua.
Junior Infants spotted many summer flowers and lots of minibeasts on our walk around the school grounds.
