Today Senior Infants got a surprise visit from Nurse Ellen! She heard about how the children were learning all about the hospital in their play groups and decided to pay a visit to them play in role as doctors, nurses, surgeons, radiographers and patients in the hospital🏥 She explained her role of a nurse in Temple Street hospital and all the work that she does with babies.

Last week, Senior Infants were learning about data which we know is about collecting information! As we are in a new season, we thought it would be fun to collect some information about the autumnal objects that can be found around the school! 🍂 The class explored the grounds of the school along with Ms Ince and recorded the amount of autumn objects they found into their books. They were very observant and found lots of different items! The class then returned to the classroom and began recording their data on bar charts 📊
The class have been reading the story of ‘Owl Babies’ and were inspired so they created their own fluffy looking owls!! They dabbed pompoms with white paint to design the body. The class then cut out beaks, eyes and feet for their owls in which they painted orange.
Today Senior Infants went on trip to the library to see the show ‘Bake’! 👩🍳 The children were thrilled to be able to take part in the different aspects of the show from helping the baker and his daughter Matilda make the cakes, to helping the baker clean up the cake when it was knocked down by Prince Fredrick! 🤴🏽 Take a look:
