We love maths in our class and have done brilliant work in it this year. We loved the topic of Money and did so many activities. We did stations in money and worked with real coins to help us understand. We are now experts at identifying and using coins up to 10c. We used a shop scenario to buy and sell items, sorted coins, used piggy banks and played some fun money games!
What a busy last term we have had here in Senior Infants. As we finish our last couple of days in Senior Infants we look back on all the learning we haver achieved and the fun we have had together. Although we are a little sad to be finishing and moving into different classes next year, we had so much fun together. We love maths in our class and have done brilliant work in it this year. We loved the topic of Money and did so many activities. We did stations in money and worked with real coins to help us understand. We are now experts at identifying and using coins up to 10c. We used a shop scenario to buy and sell items, sorted coins, used piggy banks and played some fun money games! We did many topics in maths this year. We explored weight and were very good at identifying items that were heavy or light. We also used pan balances and a variety of items to see which weigh heavier or lighter. We also explored capacity and really enjoyed using water with some miwadi and lots of different utensils. Check us out in action! We love art in our classroom! One of our favourite pieces was our Crazy Cow art pieces that we did all on our own. Mr. Geaney drew it step by step on the board and we followed. We were so impressed and proud of ourselves. We had a second go at clay also and made some cool aliens to use in our space station for Aistear. We also explored Claudé Monet's water scenes and attached a bridge to make it into a water scene! Check out our creations below! Father's Day was a special occasion that had to mark in our class. We made some cool cards that folded out very big. We hope all the Dad's loved their cards! One of our Science topics this term was Magnets and we think we are experts now at recognising items that attract a magnet and those that do not. We had a wide variety of items in our sharing tray that we had to first estimate before testing. We noted our results in our copies. We then explored our classroom environment with our magnets and were surprised with some of our finds! One of our favourite Aistear topics this year was Space. We had so much fun pretending to be astronauts working in the space centre. We also used our clay aliens in our small world area. We made amazing solar systems and rockets that we were so proud of. We now know some amazing facts about space, are able to recall the order of the planets and even which is the smallest largest and closest to the earth. We could have future astronauts at NASA among us! As we are coming to the end of our time in Senior Infants, Mr. Geaney has organised a 10 day countdown with a special activity each day. We have 10 balloons which are filled with activities that we get to pop each day and it is so exciting. So far, we have played quizzes on the IPads, done chalk art on the yard and even make chocolate biscuit cake in our pods. We had an amazing breakfast morning with cereal, toasts and fruit. We visited the playground for the first time and we so excited. We also completed a maths trail in the car park and some very clever children found out which car was Mr. Geaney's. We had a virtual school tour of Dublin zoo and had some pop corn to enjoy the videos. It is so exciting to pop the balloon and see what the special activity is each morning. A big well done to all the boys and girls in Senior Infants. They have worked so hard this year and should enjoy a lovely summer break before they go into First Class.
