Senior Infants

Flying high in Senior Infants

Another amazing display of artwork from Senior Infants. One of their favourite art lessons from September was the Up inspired hot-air balloon art. They had so much fun making these and they loved having their picture in the middle of the hot-air balloon. The quote on the board reads 'Oh the places you will go' and I know this Senior Infants have a bright, fun and exciting year ahead.

We all fit together in Senior Infants!

September was a busy month in Senior Infants and all the children settled back into school life wondefully. We read the story 'The Day the Crayons Quit' and 'The Crayon box that talked' in SPHE. These stories taught us how important it is to include everyone in our class and how each and every one of us are unique! 

The children completed wonderful art work based on these stories.

We also focused on our favourite things in History. We talked about what our favourite outfit to wear is. The children planned these outfits and designed them. They created a beautiful art display. Check out our 'September Self-Portraits' on our wow work wall. Amazing work by Senior Infants and we are all so proud of how well they have settled back into school. September Self-portraits finished

End of Year Message

School is out  A massive thank you to all the children and parents of Senior Infants who have worked so incredibly hard this year, and adapted to online teaching seamlessly in the last few months. Without the dedication and support of the parents, it really could not have been done.


 I really enjoyed interacting with you all on the Seesaw app and I have been very impressed with all the uploads, videos and pictures you have done since the schools closed in March.

 I hope everyone has a super summer and I look forward to seeing you all again really soon.

Wishing you all the very best in September.

Kind Regards,


15th-19th June

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

We are now on our last full week of Senior Infants and as we get closer to the end of the school term we will begin to wind down and reduce the workload as we would do in a normal school year, I have uploaded a list of work to choose from throughout the week.  I will be uploading various different fun activities to do on SeeSaw daily as well. You can upload pictures of one fun activity you do daily from the list. 

Once again thank you for all of your work and support, you have been amazing throughout all of this.

Please do not hesitate to get in contact if you have any questions.
