Senior Infants spent all of last month learning about Space. We had a lot of fun doing different experiments and incorporating Space into our Aistear.

The different Aistear stations included our roleplay area which was the International Space Station, building a rocket in construction and playdough and making space passports in our writing station.

For Science, we experimented trying to launch a rocket into the air using bicarbonate soda and vinegar in a empty bottle with a cork lid. It was very exciting watching it launch into the air.

Our other Science lesson was trying to launch a paper rocket by blowing it with a straw. We tried different ways to see which was the most effective method to get our rocket to launch the furthest, this led to a race against each other in the hall!

Finally, Senior Infants spent a week making projects based on Space that were amazing! They ranged from planets, to rockets, to aliens and to solar systems. They were all very impressive and a lot of work was put in to making them!
