The Garden Centre Fun in Senior Infants

We’ve been learning all about the garden centre over the last month in Senior Infants. We’ve planted seeds and gone on flower, minibeast and bee hunts. In Aistear, the children have built garden centres from blocks, had sensory play with soil and sand, made plants and flowers from playdoh and did lots of artwork including buncase flowers, potato prints, ladybirds and toilet roll bumble bees. We said goodbye to our student teacher, Miss Moynihan after 5 weeks of lovely lessons and great fun!     

Christmas is Senior Infants 🎄

We had great fun over the last week in Room 6. We did various Christmas activities every day including Pin the Beard on Santa, Pin the Nose on Rudolf, a table quiz, making virtual hugs, making our own Rudolf, Christmas musical statues and even a visit from Santa himself on Monday!

Wishing you all a happy and healthy Christmas and we will see you in  the New Year.

🎄Spreading Christmas Cheer 🎄

All the children of St. Joseph’s designed a stocking, bauble, present or Christmas jumper to display in Gorey Shopping Centre. Be sure to take a look!

A big thank you to the SET team and Alan for organising such a beautiful display.

Science Week in Senior Infants

We did two science experiments this week as part of science week. First one was a skittles experiment, where we dissolved the colouring off the skittles to make a rainbow on the plate. Then we did a floating and sinking experiment where we investigated which classroom items would float and which would sink. The children learned a lot this week and had lots of fun!
