Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs!

We have been learning all about the weather in Aisling’s Senior Infants. We have been reading factual and fictional stories based around the topic of the weather. When we read ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs’ we knew it must be fictional – there was food falling from the sky!

We then pretended we lived in Chewandswallow (the town in the story) and we drew our favourite dinner falling from the sky! Have a look at our video to see what we would like the food weather forecast to be!


Healthy Eating Art

In Senior Infants we have been exploring the benefits of healthy eating and the advantages of having a healthy lifestyle. Our Aistear topic this month is the Healthy Eating Cafe and we are having great fun designing menus, playing in the restaurant and kitchen, creating our own restaurant small world and making sand pie! We have also been dancing in PE, which is keeping us fit and healthy!

In art we have been looking at the work of Henri Matisse and Giuseppe Arcimboldo. We really enjoyed using oil pastels to draw a still life picture and then we got to design our own face using fruit and vegetables! Have a look at our amazing gallery below.

Painting with Nature!

Second class were so lucky to have Caroline (Sadhbh’s mum) come in and visit us today. She taught us how to make paint using different berries, leaves and soil.


First we went on a hunt in the field, some of us looked for lots of green things,some of us hunted for red things, some of us got berries, some of use found grass, some of us even brought back soil!

Then Caroline came in to talk to us about the colours we see around us, and how we can use them to make paint. Here we are looking out the window!

Then we went in small groups, and Caroline helped us make the paint. We used the paint to create a picture!






A big thank you to Caroline (Sadhbh’s mum) for sharing this with us! We all really enjoyed ourselves.
