Senior Infants – Ms O’ Donnell
Mighty Mouth Team
We had a great visit today by Adrian who quizzed us on all we knew about keeping our teeth healthy! And of course, we aced it because we are the Mighty Mouth Team!
Henri Matisse Art
Henri Matisse was a fun artist for the boys to use as a stimulus for their artwork. You can tell they were very inspired by his work. Have a look…
This week the boys have been learning all about capacity and we’ve been having great fun with this topic as it can be so practical! We started our week off by using our ‘Math Talk’ to describe the capacity of the containers: full, half full and empty and we finished our week with estimating and measuring the capacity of many different containers!
Culture Day and Our American Visitors
Would you like to visit our Restaurants?
We have a great boat restaurant to visit! On this restaurant you can find some tasty hamburgers, sprouts and peas and even a cheese and peas pizza! Mmmmmm… nice and healthy!
In preparation for Multicultural week, our class have been given the country Poland to learn all about! The boys had a great time baking some Polish buns. They poured, mixed and baked!
The boys are learning about different habitats and Mr. Mulhern so happened to come across a nest! Who’s habitat might that be? Why don’t you ask the boys in R.11, they can tell you!
Welcome to R.11’s Restaurant!
Have a look at our tasty meals and menus at R.11’s new restaurant! The boys are working together to create healthy menus (alongside some not so healthy menus!); making some lovely burgers, noodles and much more with the play dough; designing and constructing a delivery van and a new restaurant for our future expansion and finally just taking a break at our restaurant itself!
Flight of the Bumblebee!
This week the boys had the pleasure of working with Mr. Mulhern. They listened to a famous piece of music by Rimsky Korsakov called ‘Flight of the Bumblebee’ and respond to this music through their artwork using paint and straws! Some amazing pieces of work were being created today!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Criminals are on the loose!
Criminals are on the loose in room 11 but our Garda Station is taking care of it! The boys are investigating crimes; taking crime calls; taking prints and solving many cases. Room 11 is in safe hands with our Gardaí on the case.
The boys have been learning all about the number 9. To help us learn about this we did different activities at each Math Station that involved the story of nine, take a look!
Our Bronze Certificate Food Dude Achievers!
Marking the beginning of Spring with our ‘Cherry Blossom’ trees
The boys created some beautiful art today using our pastel colours and we learned all about how best to use pastels and what colours would work best! What a great job they did, I was very impressed, well done boys!
Reading Buddies with 4th Class!
Mr. Ryan’s class and our class have buddied up during Library time! It’s a great way for the boys to share their reading with each other; both classes have the opportunity to show off their brilliant reading skills in their paris! Listening to the great expressions in the boys voices and hearing how super senior infants are at sounding out and blending independently and with the support of fourth class is great to see!
Planting our Daffodil Bulbs!
Our Math Stations
We are learning all about the number 8 right now. We created the story of 8 on our play dough station and when using the pegs! We also worked on patterns and addition. Our challenge station was to figure out whether the addition and subtraction facts I made were true or false. Take a look at how smart the boys in R.11 are!
We had great fun creating our own special flowers to start off our Spring topic! We used lots of different types of fabric and fibre. Some lovely flowers have been created that I would love in my back garden!!

The Walls of Limerick
The boys have been working really well in their Irish Dance teams to learn the Walls of Limerick! We will be all set for our ceilí come Seachtain na Gaeilge!
The boys are always trying their best and learning and I am always delighted to see when they are creative with their spelling!
