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!

Making 3-D Shapes

We have been learning all about 3-D shapes in Maths this week. We learned about cubes, cuboids, cylinders and spheres and have had lots of fun spotting these shapes in our everyday lives. I gave the children a challenge of constructing a cube with their partner using lollipop sticks and playdoh. They found it quite challenging but had great fun working together.
