Lá na bPancóga
Our take on Kandinsky's Circles
In February, we focused on the artist Wassily Kandinsky. He is famous for his abstract art. We decided to create Kandinsky inspired Hearts - here are our wonderful creations.
Our trip to the Post Office
In English, we learned the procedure for writing a letter so then we decided to follow that procedure and write our own letters to Santa. We also drew lovely pictures for Santa. As a class, we walked down to the Post Office to post our letters. Along the way, we met a post man and we stopped to chat to him about his job. We were also very lucky to meet another post man on the way back and we got a picture with his van! We had a great adventure to the Post Office.
Carúil na Nollag - Bualadh Bos
Tá Daidí na Nollag ag teacht...
It all started this morning with a message from Toby the Elf telling us that a very special person was coming to visit us. Next thing we know, there were sirens wailing and a Fire Engine in the yard delivering a very precious visitor - Santa Claus. We were thrilled to see him, we asked him questions and sang a few Christmas Carols. Thank you so much for coming to see us Santa!
Thank you, thank you for coming to see our First Nativity
Senior Infants had the most wonderful time on stage performing for all the parents at the Christmas Carol Service. Everyone sang and danced their hearts out. We also loved learning about the story of how Jesus was born. A big thank you to everyone who came to watch. We are so proud of all everyone.
Nollaig Shona Daoibh go léir!
Comhghairdeas to our Credit Union Colouring Competition Winner!!
How long until Maths?
We've been learning all about length and width in Maths. As you can see we've been very busy measuring a variety of different objects/people in the class!

Our trip to the café
We have been learning all about the café in Aistear. As we are now experts in ordering and being customers, we thought it would be a great idea to visit a local café to test out our skills. We were so lucky to visit St. Francis' Café in Kinsale where we got hot chocolate, smoothies and a treat. We also met the chef Darren and he showed us the different areas in the kitchen. It was a great day! A huge thank you to everyone at St. Francis' Café.
We were put to work in Senior Infants this fortnight as our classroom became a café for Aistear. We were making Rice Krispie buns, building a café, taking orders from customers, serving customers, clearing and setting tables, we even had to do the washing up!
Wibbly Wobbly Jelly
As we are learning all about procedural writing we decided to make jelly. We took turns stirring and adding water until the jelly dissolved. While the jelly was setting, we discussed the steps and then wrote the procedure which are proudly on display in school.
Why walk when you can dance?
Our focus in P.E. for November and December is dance. We are very lucky in Scoil Naomh Eltin to have 2 visiting teachers to help us. Every Monday, Dancing Derek comes to visit and we work on our creative dance while on Thursdays Miah teaches us some traditional Irish dances. A huge thank you to Derek and Miah from all of us in Senior Infants!
Mobile Farm Visit
This morning we got a fantastic surprise visit - our school yard turned into a farmyard. There was great excitement as we got to see some pigs, sheep, ducks, calves, a hen and her baby chicks and a turkey. Farmers in the making!
Something seems fishy about this...
We were delighted to work with Fiona the artist who brought in some real fish for us to draw, Not only did we get to draw the fish but we also got to touch them, look at their gills, fins, tails, eyes and antenna. What a fantastic experience it was! We cannot wait to see the finished product. Take sneak peek below at the beginning stages of our project.
Aistear was very spooky in October. There were a lot of eyeballs and bats hidden in pasta to help us practise our fine motor skills. Our beautiful doll house got a make over and became a haunted house. Boys and girls also got to draw haunted houses and stick spooky Halloween pasta on to decorate them, We also had a dress up corner where the boys and girls of Senior Infants disappeared and witches, ghosts and vampires took their place.
As it was nearing Halloween, we decided to put our pointillism technique to the test and create spooky pumpkins. We used cotton buds to create the pointillism effect. We had great fun learning about pointillism.

Maths Week 2019!
Senior Infants became mathematician's during Maths Week. We were so lucky to have maths stations every day. We were practising lots of different areas of the curriculum from finding and ordering numbers on the iPads to Monster Shape Bingo. We also teamed up with Ms. O'Connor's class and went on a maths trail around the school grounds. We wish it could be maths week every week!!
We love Autumn!
We have been learning all about Autumn. We became detectives and went looking for some signs of Autumn. We found plenty of deciduous trees that had already shed their colourful leaves. Boys and girls also collected some conkers, acorns, pine cones, leaves and helicopters for our autumn table. We learned about the animals that are getting ready to hibernate or migrate for the winter. We also made beautiful clay hedgehogs for our Autumn table.
During Aistear, we made animals from Playdoh and made their homes using moss and twigs from the garden. In small-world, we had Little Red Riding Hood and a very frightening granny which was then brought to life in the role-play area where children performed Little Red Riding Hood.
