This year senior infants went to Airfield on their school tour. We loved seeing the animals and learning all about food, farming and the natural world. Have a look at our video to see pictures of our big day out!
Ms. Kinnane’s Senior Infants have been investigating what we use different materials for.
Have a look below at just some of our findings and our brilliant artwork.
We planted marigolds in room 3 and watched them grow! We could see the flowers begin to grow within a few weeks of planting them. Unfortunately, some of the marigolds did not grow. We decided to make a graph to show how many of the flowers grew. We counted 17 flowers that grew and 4 that did not grow. Have a look at us planting the seeds and making our graphs!
Mr O Sullivan’s class had lots of fun learning about magnets.
They did lots of experiments to see how magnets work.
Magnets attract things like scissors, paper clips and other things made of metal.
They don’t attract things like teddies or shoes!
Every magnet has two poles, a north pole and a south pole.
Ms.Kinnane’s Senior Infants grew cress seeds over a period of 6 days and discovered seeds need heat and water on a bed of cotton wool to grow.
Room 3 thought we should share with you a picture of the smallest banana that we have ever seen! Fay had this mini banana today for her lunch! She was still very hungry afterwards. We had a lot of laughs looking at it and we hope you do too.
The St. Kevin’s Science Fair took place today in the school hall.
All classes from Junior Infants to 6th Class took part and demonstrated their wonderful scientific skills.
There was a huge range of activities from controlling a robot on an iPad to an electric magic wand.
We hope all the classes enjoyed it. Thank you to both 6th classes for being such wonderful scientists.
Have a look at the video below to see just some of the activities and experiments that took place!
Ms. Kinnane’s class and their fabulous hairstyles.
Ms. Kinnane’s class led the infants’ assembly before our Easter Break. The assembly focused on St. Patrick and the class told the story brilliantly to the other infant classes. Have a look at Ms. Kinnane’s class’ St. Patrick story in the video below.
Well done to all the boys and girls who spoke and sang so well in the story.
Just before our Easter break, the four senior infant classes had an Easter Egg Hunt. With the help of Mr. McNeice’s 6th class, the students worked through the yard finding out how many animals they could find in the hope of getting a chocolate prize.
Well done to all the Senior Infant classes for doing so well and finding all the animals. We hope you enjoyed your prize at the end of it.
