Healthy January in Senior Infants!

Senior Infants Meet Santa Claus!!!


The Post Office

We have been learning all about the Post Office this month as part of our Aistear theme. We have been delivering postcards around the school, building post vans and post boxes from junk art; working in a mail sorting centre and even visiting the local post office to post Christmas cards home. We have been so busy!

We have been having lots of fun this week in our classroom. We are all so busy working in the hair and nail beauty salon. We have been taking lots of appointments for hair, nails, make up and massage. The phone hasn’t stopped! We can’t wait for our pet parlour to open next week!

Mata sa Rang

Welcome to Mata as Rang.
Senior infants have spent the last few weeks enjoying maths in the classroom. Mata as Rang offers a unique approach to extending children’s number knowledge, understanding and strategies. The programme offers an extremely detailed profiles-based assessment of pupils in respect of these areas and provides a framework for individual, group or class-based instruction which is suitable not only for pupils who are experiencing difficulties but also for average and more able children. Senior Infants and Mrs o Toole would like to thank all the teachers who came and made maths so much fun over the past 6weeks.
