Senior Infants




We went to Clonfert Farm in Kildare for our school tour this year. Great fun was had by all.  We got to feed lots of different animals including a llama, lambs, calves, horses and a donkey. We played mini golf and had great fun in the playgrounds and bouncy castle.  


On Wednesday May 17th our Infant classes took part in their sportsday. This is a great day where all the boys are encouraged to have fun while being cheered on by their parents. Congratulations to all the boys on taking part and thank you to Ms Doyle our sports teacher on organising another brilliant day.


We had great fun doing lots of Easter art.  We also made an Easter booklet telling the story of the life of Jesus.



Have a look at our Spring art.


Happy St Patrick's Day to one and all !


What great little thespians we are especially on the night of our Wizard of Oz production.  Just a sample of the many photos, I'm sure that were taken on the big night.


We celebrated Art Week by making beautiful art pieces at home with our family and displaying them in school.  During the week we studied an Irish artist called Paul Henry.   Ms Heslin was kind enough to lend us two beautiful prints of his work to display in our classroom.  We then made chalk pictures in the style of Paul Henry.  Iggy's Mum Áine(a fashion designer)  kindly spent the morning helping us to design and make fabric chair covers, we had great fun.  Later in the week we made lollipop stick rafts, winter trees and snowmen with tissuse and fabric.


We had great fun collecting artefacts from long ago, our parents and grandparents helped us greatly.   We gathered pictures of fashion, toys, household items and vehicles of long ago and stuck them on card to finish our history project.


We had great fun creating our own comic strips.  Once we printed them all out we then wrote the story for everyone to read. 


Christmas preparation time is great fun in Senior Infants.  We decorated our classroom beautifully with a crib, decorations, a little Christmas tree where we put on lanterns we had made.  Our Christmas art competitions pictures were lovely.  We made wreaths, plum puddings and glitter angels as well as candle and stained glass Christmas pictures.  Christmas means a lot to us, so we wrote a page each about it and covered them with copies of our own designed Christmas cards.
