Science week in Senior Infants

Science week took place from the 12th-19th of November 2017. Senior Infants had great fun taking part in experiments during the week. They made their own lava lamps using 4 simple ingredients- water, vegetable oil, food colouring and alka seltzer tablets. The alka seltzer tablets created the bubbles in the lava lamp.
They also used magnets around the classroom. They found that lots of things in the classroom were attracted to magnets e.g. the legs of the tables and chairs, the whiteboard, the door handle and even the radiators. They enjoyed exploring and using magnets in their small groups.

A visit from the vet


Senior Infants have been busy learning about being a vet. They used the role-play area during Aistear time to go into the different roles found in a veterinary clinic such as a vet, a receptionist, a nurse and a customer. They were lucky to have a visit from a local vet who spoke to them about her job and how they can help to take care of their own animals. Thanks very much to Paula for visiting the children.






Team Hope

We made contact with Team Hope and they are willing to take shoeboxes until next Thursday the 16th of November. Thanks for your continued effort with this charity.
