Senior Infants began learning all about procedural writing. We decided we wanted to write about how to make a cup of hot chocolate. We learned to write a procedure we had to include a title and bossy verbs.

We wrote our procedure together as a class. Then, we tried it out by copying out procedure to make a hot chocolate – They turned out delicious!!

We learned all about The Café in Aistear this month. We practiced ordering a starter, main course and a dessert.

We built small cafés in our construction area and write menus for our own restaurants in our literacy station. We had great fun!

We also celebrated Valentines Day this month. We made lots of Art including an I love you to pieces heart and love birds. We coloured in Valentines jars as well.

Today we celebrated pancake Tuesday with some fun activities.

We learnt about the ingredients that are needed to make pancakes and sequenced steps of making pancakes too. We also designed our ‘dream pancake’. Take a look at our work:

But of course the best part of the day had to be getting to watch our pancakes being made and choosing our very own topics to eat with them. Look at that amazing flip from Mr. Vance!

We always share love and kindness in first class and we loved celebrating St. Valentines Day together in our classroom.

In Junior Infants we love building. Whether it’s with Lego, wooden blocks or cups. Over the past few weeks we’ve had a number of building challenges in Aistear and SESE. Check out some of our constructions below

While learning about animals and the Zoo in Aistear, one of our stations was to build our our Zoo to house the animals using wooden blocks.

One book we read in class was Jack and the Beanstalk. This inspired us to try and build our own beanstalk out of Lego. We had a competition to see who could build the highest beanstalk that could stand on it’s own without being held for at least 10 seconds!

Finally inspired by our STEM for Fun day we had our own class task of building a wall made of cups. They were very impressive.

This month we have been learning all about writing procedures! We made smoothies and conducted STEM experiments, and then we wrote up procedures!

We also conducted research and wrote procedures about things we are interested in!

In maths, we were learning about length. We used meatre sticks, rulers and measuring tapes to measure the length of lots of different things in the classroom and around the school!

We have been focusing on procedure writing since January! We have baked, given directions around Bray and completed S.T.E.M activities. After each activity, we’ve written up the procedure. Here’s a look at how we got on.

First class have been learning loads about wind.

We drew excellent windmills and surrounded them with our facts we found out about windmills in Ireland!

We then tried to grind wheat into flour ourselves to test how a windmill works inside- we used a pestle and mortar to do this.

We also made our own windmills to test the speed of the wind. Take a look:
