The Animal Road Show

The Animal Road Show visited our school today. We saw lots of different animals.  We really enjoyed it!


We are coming to the end of our Aistear Zoo. We really enjoyed learning about all the zoo animals and also caring for them.


In Aistear we are learning all about the Zoo. We read the story Tiddler by Julia Donaldson. We loved Tiddler’s colourful imagination so we designed colourful fish to show our bright and colourful imaginations. We put these on our classroom door.
We now know lots of interesting facts about the elephants and we even wrote them down!
We also looked at the artist Andy Warhol and we designed pop art.
Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Aistear-The Zoo

The children were very busy during Aistear time. We are currently looking at zoo animals. The children had to construct enclosures for the animals. They had  buy tickets,maps, books and souvenirs at the shop. The  zoo keepers were very busy tending to the sick animals. We also painting the zoo.

We are learning all about time in Senior Infants. We drew the time on clocks, played games using clocks and made beautiful watches!

Seachtain na Gaeilge 2019


Ms. Looney, Ms. Hallissey, Mr. Finnegan and Ms. Lynch have been working on a new initiative called lesson study. This is where we worked together to design a lesson to help improve a specific aspect of learning. We decided to improve a very specific aspect of Maths with the help of Bee Bots.

Michelle from the PDST videoed our lesson and was so impressed with Senior Infants. She commented on their team work, their maths language, their learning, their politeness and manners. She could not believe that they were only in Senior Infants. You should be very proud of them! Well done!

Pancake Tuesday

We had some delicious pancakes on pancake Tuesday. Yummy!!

Mini beasts

Sean was very busy yesterday. He went on a mini beast hunt and found woodlouse, centipedes, millipedes, beetles, slugs and worms (I hope I didn’t forget any). Noah and Ryan found some millipedes at break time.

Thanks Harry, Ronan and Natalie for showing us!

Literacy Week

Literacy Week got underway today. We read the book What The Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson. After that a lovely artist named Miss Moynihan came in to show us how to draw a ladybird. We had great fun doing this. We then designed our classroom door based on the story The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. Have a look at our pictures! Enjoy!
