Ms Fehily’s Senior Infant Class have been learning about both ‘Weather’ and ‘Space’ recently. They carried out an experiment which explored whether a snowman would melt quicker if it was wearing a coat or not. First, they froze some bottles of water. Then, each group got two bottles and put a ‘coat’ on one of them. They waited an hour to check and then recorded the results. The snowmen wearing coats melted quicker, as they had predicted!
Materials and Change – Heating and Melting
Ms Fehily’s Senior Infants learned about the process of heating and melting. They used their learning to melt some chocolate for their rice krispie cakes. No doubt they were delicious!
Materials – Making Potions!
The Senior Infant pupils in Ms Fehily’s class had great fun experimenting with various liquids and materials when creating their very own potions. Those potions certainly look interesting! Would you agree?
Materials – Let it Snow!
It’s ‘snow time’ for the pupils in Ms Fehily’s Senior Infant Class. Who knew that mixing baking soda and conditioner results in snow?! Amazing! This was a really fun experiment for the pupils to try out, particularly during the season of winter.
Energy and Forces – Magnetism and Electricity: Magnet Magic!
Senior Infants have been learning about magnets and how they work. The pupils loved using the magnets. They identified some items that do and do not attract to magnets, for example paper clips and plastic toys.
Ms Dorgan’s Senior Infant pupils loved working with Bee Bots. The pupils worked very well together and had lots of fun too!Check out these ‘dancing’ Bee Bots. The Senior Infant pupils had to programme two Bee Bots to do the same commands to make them dance.
Engineering in Play
Our Senior Infant pupils love to build a variety of constructions during play. Check out the structures built by these budding engineers. They look super!
Measures – Measuring using various materials.
Ms Fehily’s Senior Infant pupils were challenged with the task of measuring both the length and width of their tables. They used cubes and straws to take their measurements. We think they look very focused, don’t you?
Number – Partitioning
Ms Fehily’s Senior Infant pupils used blocks to partition sets up to the number 9. They had great fun practicing this skill. They used the lollipop stick to clearly show the partition.
