Chocolate Garden of Ireland

Senior Infants had a great day on their school tour in the Chocolate Garden of Ireland. We learned all about how chocolate is made and even got to taste a sample of various types of chocolate. We then got to make our own chocolate house or train which the children got to bring home with them. The children had lots of fun playing in the playground afterwards and we also had a lovely woodland walk where we saw lots of geese on the lake.


Active Week in Senior Infants

We had a great Active Week last week, with lots of activities to keep us busy. We had a soccer blitz, with each team playing a match a day. The teams in our class were Liverpool and Barcelona. We had hurling with Paddy on Tuesday, learning some new skills with our hurls from last year. We had a HIIT class with Mrs Murphy, Mrs Armstrong and Mr. O’Brien. We also had PE stations with the playground leaders from 5th and 6th class. The children really had a great time all week, and I think their favourite part was getting to play soccer with Mr. Cronin on the last day!


Halloween in Senior Infants 🎃 👻

This month, in preparation for Hallowe’en, our role play corner transformed into a Witches’ Den. We had great fun dressing up as witches and other creatures, writing spells and potions and making potions using spider webs, creepy-crawlies and other disgusting ingredients.

On Friday, we all got to dress up in our Hallowe’en costumes and had a great day of fun and games. To finish off our theme of the witches’ den, we made some real witches’ potions and made them bubble over using vinegar and baking soda. We also made a lava lamp using oil and water, food colouring and made it come alive using an effervescent tablet. The kids really enjoyed these science experiments.
