Senior Infants B
Welcome to the Senior Infants B class page.
This page will be updated regularly and will contain important information regarding events in our classroom. Please keep an eye on it for any updates. We are a green school and to save paper we use this page to update parents rather than sending home notes all the time.
Thank you all very much for your co-operation.

Last weeks’ update: 2/9/19 – 6/9/19
Our theme was “Myself – I am unique”.
In Science and Geography we explored Our Senses by completing a senses walk around the school grounds and we experimented with our senses in a Science Popcorn lesson.
Our SPHE lesson involved using mirrors to explore similarities and differences in our appearance and this highlighted how we are all Unique. After this we created beautiful self-portraits.
We performed a song called Slap the Sillies Out. This was so much fun. During the instrumental we had the opportunity to WOW Mrs. Sweeney with our freestyle moves.
In Gaeilge, we worked with Miss Kellegher’s Senior Infants to explore the topic Mé Féin through Role Play, Songs, Stories and Comhrá.
P.E. was also lots of fun as we played lots of different Playground games including: duck duck goose, ship sea shore, flush the toilet and more.
Well done to all the boys and girls in Senior Infants B on a great start back to school.
Keep up the great behaviour and excellent work!
Our stamp cards are filling up fast.
We have already done lots of fun things during our first week in Senior Infants:
English – We are reading Elmer stories and we loved the story of “Elmer and the Lost Teddy”
Maths – Our focus is on revising matching, sorting and classifying, we also practiced “5 little speckled frogs”
All About Me – my favourite colours, my family, my favourite food, myself and what I want to be when I grow up, etc.
Free play – construction, dress up, colouring, lego, small world play and lots more
Gaeilge – Mé Féin
We really enjoy our GoNoodle movement breaks.
