We will be going on the Supernova package which is the ultimate school tour bringing together three popular activities.The group will start their visit with a workshop . Workshops can vary from Alien Slime to Rockets. The group will then move into an interactive science exhibition Cosmos at the Castle where they will learn about the Universe and life in outer space! The students the work their way through the four large interactive displays. Next up is the Pan Galactic Station where students send a message to space.
We will be departing early on the morning so please have your child in school at usual start time of 8.50 a.m. Home-time will be 1.30 p.m. as usual.
Your child can bring a packed lunch and a drink on the day.
The price for the tour will be €14 – this includes the bus to the venue.
You can send this money to the class teacher in an envelope labelled clearly with your child’s name including the permission slip( if you have not received your permission slip please ask either Deirdre or Grace for one).

Senior Infants brought their teddy bears to school for a sleep over! The teddy bears really enjoyed their time alone in school . They explored the yard, the office and they even had story time in the classroom!
Senior Infants have been busy learning about tadpoles, caterpillars and plants.
It has been amazing to watch the tadpoles grow.
The caterpillars are now in cocoons and we are waiting with anticipation for them to transform into beautiful butterflies!
We grew cress, beans and carrots.
On Tuesday the 8th November Theatrix Theatre came to visit the school and presented a Circus Workshop. The children in Senior Infants really enjoyed this! it was great fun when the plates were spinning on sticks. Bob the Clown showed the classes some funny tricks!
Last week we had an exciting visit from a Garda. As we have been learning a lot about emergency services at the moment Senior Infants had a lot of questions for him. The Garda showed us his walkie talkies and even called a patrol car for Senior Infants to see.
It was very exciting to see the patrol car and to hear the siren. Have a look at our Aistear page to see some photographs of the visit.
Welcome to the Senior Infants site. We hope you will enjoy a glimpse into our lives in Senior Infants. We'll post some songs and rhymes we are learning so you can sing along at home. You will also find weekly homework and Frásaí na Seachtaine (phrase of the week). We look forward to posting photographs of some of our work for you to see!
We hope you enjoy reading about our school life here in Senior Infants!
