Senior Infants News Update - February 2018
Senior Infants have had a great first term. We have had lots of fun in class with Aistear, Maths Stations, Literacy Stations, cluichí Gaeilge, Go Noodle movement breaks, Music, Poetry, Drama and especially Art.
We are really enjoying our second term as well.
We have really developed with our Maths. We can now count to 20, estimate and measure length, height and width, we know our 2D and 3D shapes and are getting the hang of counting on. The Story of 9 is just finished and we cannot wait to start the Story of 10.
Our reading is getting way better thanks to our Buddies in Third and Fourth Class. Also, we love getting CAPER books each week which give us the chance to read with our parents at home. Our writing is getting better too thanks to all the hard work being done at home with our spellings.
We are all getting really healthy and fit thanks to all the activities we have done. So far we have done Zumba, dance, athletics and golf.
We got to do some Science experiments like testing different materials to see if they were waterproof. Poor Mr. Russell was mopping the floor for hours after! At least we now know that paper is not a good material for a rain-jacket.
Grandparent's Day was fantastic. We got to perform our song 'Somewhere Only We Know' for our families which was a special treat. Some of us are still singing that song in the yard.
Pancake Tuesday was lots of fun although some of us ended up with more chocolate on our face than in our mouths! It's going to be really tricky trying to give up some of those goodies for Lent.
We are going to keep working hard and learning lots and have fun along the way.
