Bricks4Kidz Workshop 2022

On March 21st the Senior Infant classes took part in a very engaging STEM workshop, ‘Bricks4Kidz. The children followed step-by-step instructions to build a battery-powered rocket. The children had so much fun while also developing STEM skills such as planning, predicting, observing, recording, questioning and communicating. They were very excited to countdown to blastoff and see their rockets blasting through space!

After building the rockets, the children created lego pictures using single-studded bricks. Some followed instructions while others got creative on their own!

Engineer’s Week 2022

Senior Infants had fun designing and making during Engineer’s Week.

We had fun exploring balance, measurement, strategy, prediction, discussion and teamwork.

Houses and Homes 🏡

Our theme for the month of January was Houses and Homes. We learned all about the different types of homes people live in, and learned lots of new language related to homes and houses.

During Aistear time, the senior infants used lots of the new language they had learned while role-playing that they were working in an Estate Agents.

The students built very impressive homes during the construction station.

The senior infants also used a variety of different recycled materials in the Junk Art station to create beautiful homes.

Well done senior infants!
