 Fáilte to Senior Infants 2017/18

Hello, and welcome to our page. Here we are, our first group photo on our second day in our new class with our teacher Ms. Moloney. It was a lovely start to our year together, as Galway are playing in the All Ireland Hurling Final on Sunday. What a lovely surprise we all had to see a Galway car parked in front of our school. So here we all are, young Galway fans, supporting our county. Look! What’s that in front of us on the ground? Is it the cup, returned to Galway? Let’s hope so!

Well, here we all are, our first class photo; all 24 of us plus our teacher. We are looking forward to a great year together, filled with learning, discovering and exploring in a fun way.

What fun maths is! Today we learnt that a pair meant ‘two’, and then the fun began. We put our shoes into a pile and then had to sort them into pairs.  We had a competition to see which team could sort them the fastest. When it was all over, we had to find our own pair of shoes. Yes! Maths is such fun!

More maths! Sorting, this time. We discussed in groups how we would like to sort various objects. Then we got really good at it and sorted using two attributes. Some of us even tried three.

We had a very exciting day today. Guess what it was! Our maroon and white gear is a good clue. Yes! You guessed! The Liam McCarthy Cup arrived. What a year Galway have had. As you can see, they had three other great victories. We are so very proud to be Galway supporters. We also wrote about the visit.

We really enjoyed our autumn nature walk. We identifited the horse chestnut, oak, ash and beech trees and their fruits. We even came across a beech hedge. We found lichen, moss and ivy. Only two wood louse had checked into The Bug Hotel. Some shrubs were flowering for the autumn. We also had free foraging time. Our sample bags were bursting when we finished. We loved ;our autumn nature walk. great fun! See you for our winter nature walk. Slán!

Here we are once again. We loved decorating our masks for Halloween. Hope you enjoy our before and after photos. Can you guess who’s who?

At last! Celebrating Halloween at school before our Halloween break. We had a great time. We all dressed up and told the class about ourselves, we took photos, had a slice of Bairín Breac each to see who would get the fáinne. We got nice things from the ~Parent’s Council and we watched other classes perform a song or a poem for Halloween. We performed a poem. Happy Halloween everyone. Enjoy our Halloween photos.
