Summer Holiday Are Coming!
This week marks the last week of the 2019/20 school year and hopefully the last week of 'Home Schooling'! I'm sure we are all looking forward to starting the new school year in as 'normal' a way as possible. So to celebrate what has been a very different school year for us all I am going to post some of our best moments in this weeks blog and ask you to sit together and enjoy reminiscing about some of our happiest moments in Senior Infants! I hope you enjoy them.
September started off with a lovely trip to the Botanic Gardens!

What Are your Favourite Memories of Senior Infants?
I would love if I could compile some 'Favourite Memories' from each child in Rm6 for our final Friday Feedback this week. Your child might choose to upload a little video, a photo or complete this activity sheet. They might share a fond memory or something they really enjoyed about being in Senior Infants. Hopefully I will have a few thoughts to share with you on Friday. Please upload below.

I'm a little late posting Friday Feedback today because I was busy in school today cleaning our classroom and how crazy was the hailsones and rain showers today!
My Favourite Activities This Week!
Well done to the boys and girls for uploading you work for Friday Feedback! This week my Star Students are Calum, Frankie, Hallie and Josh! I am blown away by your fantastic penmanship and feeling so proud of you and your grown-ups. I know that it has been challenging to continue with distance learning at home but you have really made every effort to get on board so for that I think you all.
Home Work Challenges
Well done to Zoey, Amelia, Calum, Josh, Frankie and Hallie for completing the homework challenges. I am glad to see you all get involved in such an important learning topic. Little bit I know when I set this theme that we would be hearing such sad news this week. So do take the time to talk through all the important guidance with your child.
Some wonderful suggestion on water safety from the boys and girls included:
3 Week of Fun!
Thank you again to everyone who has engaged in distance learning. We have three week left of the school summer term. Normally we would have been winding down on the academics and heading outdoors as much as possible; having as much fun as we can. So for the next three weeks please feel free to reduce the amount of "focus work" and maybe spend some of that time visiting the playgrounds (YAY!!!) and seeing some of your friends. It's so lovely to feel a little bit of 'normal' feeding back into our lives so make the most of it. I will continue to post the weekly blog, keeping it very simple and adding some playful activities. Instead of sending me 'work' for Friday Feedback I would love if you could send me a photo of your child doing something fun, like visiting the playground (YAY!!!) or a visit to the beach, walk in the park or even a visit to a loved one? I think it would be nice to celebrate the things we are thankful for over the last three weeks.
Hope you all enjoy the weekend,

Yay! The summer has officially arrived! According to meteorology which is the study of weather, the summer months are June, July and August. We get to enjoy all the fine weather (although the good weather has been here a while now!). You may get to make a few visits to the beach or be lucky enough to have a blow-up paddling pool in your garden. But we must remember to stay safe and always make sure you have an adult to watch you! Below are some watery challenge for you this week!
Watch the videos below and talk to your grow-up about how you can stay safe in the water!
