Ms. Tracey Rea is the teacher for Senior Infants for the school year 2019-2020. Ms. Rea is joined in her classroom by Lena Foley, a member of our SNA team in Piercestown NS. The boys and girls have settled really well into their new classroom and are having lots of fun learning.
Take a look at our monthly movies, it is just a little glimpse of all the things we are learning about and most importantly all the fun we are having!
Exploring our new classroom and settling into Senior Infants.
The children had a spooktacular month this month. Take a look if you dare!
Science Week 2019
The boys and girls in Senior Infants put on their lab coats this week and became scientists as part of Science Week 2019. They had so much fun investigating, exploring and experimenting throughout the week.
The aim of Science Week is to create an awareness and interest in the area of science and also to encourage the children to become fascinated by the world we live in.
The children explored fairy tales through Áistear this month, from Jack in the Beanstalk, Goldilocks and the Three Bears to the Three Little Pigs. Mr. Murphy taught the children all about patterns and how to use our ‘Maths Eyes’ and see patterns all around us. The children learned all about the Post Office in Áistear in preparation for writing and sending Christmas cards and Santa’s letter in December. We even posted a letter to Ms. Taylor’s Junior Infant class.
The children had a super exciting December. The boys and girls in Senior Infants performed the Nativity in the church this year with the help of the amazing choir. The children worked so hard learning all their songs, actions and places for their performance. They should be super proud! Donkey stole the show and gave everyone a big smile on the night! December was topped off for us by our visit to Wheelock’s farm, to see the big man himself, Santa Claus! What an experience we all had. Happy Chirstmas to all the boys and girls. See you in the new year.

What a month January has been. Senior infants returned after Christmas and got straight back into business. They have been working very hard this month. The children have been exploring and learning loads of new things. We also have had some very busy doctors this month in our Áistear area.
Senior infants were learning all about the vets this month as part of their integrated learning through play time in Aistear. As part of this learning experience the children welcomed some of their very own pets into the classroom. Each pet was different and the children learned something new with each visit. This was such a fun and memorable learning experience. Many thanks to all the parents for their cooperation. But most importantly a huge shout out goes to Coco, Molly, Fish Two, Conor, Brodie, Blue, Bali, Rosie, Callie, the birds , hens, Ruby and Gizmo!!
