The children in Room 2 learned all about the life of Saint Brigid. Ms Scanlon and Ms. Moran with the help of the children made Saint Brigid crosses with rushes. The children designed their own Saint Brigid’s crosses. We read the story of Saint Brigid’s cloak and then created our own cloaks with multicoloured tissue paper.
Junior Infants in room 1 read the story of ‘The Gingerbread Man ‘ and have been busy acting out the story using stick puppets, making playdough shapes, drawing their own gingerbread man, sequencing the story, using the beebot to follow the gingerbread man and creating the Gingerbread Man’s getaway route in the sandpit! They finished up with a special treat, designing their own gingerbread men to take home.
See some photos from Ms. Doyle’s and Ms. Connolly’s Senior Infant classes programming with Bee Bot floor robots as part of our STEM initiative.
The children in Ms. McGovern’s Senior Infants have been learning to code with Bee Bot floor robots. They are completing a variety of Maths, Literacy and computational thinking activities. Take a look at the slide show to see some photos and videos of the children at work.
Take a look next week too as we will add some more!
The children in Room 6 went on a nature walk on Wednesday. They enjoyed crunching the autumn leaves with their feet in the beautiful sunshine. It was a great surprise to meet Fr. O’Connor on the way and the children were delighted to show him their leaf and bark rubbings.
The children in Mr. Lysaght’s are the first Senior Infant class to work as programmers using Bee Bots this year. They are completing lots of programming and computational thinking challenges through maths and literacy activities. See some photos of the children at work below:
The children in junior infants have been using the computers in the STEM room to create some beautiful art over the last few weeks. Take a look at some of their work in the video below.
