Welcome to the webpage for Junior and Senior Infants. Here we will keep you up to date on class news and post some work from the children.
In recent news………
We have been keeping really busy during lock down and we are using Google Classroom with Ms Cusack.
Teach your monster to read
Congratulations to Hannah Sargent for becoming our first Champion Reader in Senior Infants! Keep up the good work Hannah!
We are looking at the theme of Space in Aistear for the next few weeks. We made a fantastic space station and are making lots of things, including a space ship, a space station and aliens!
We had great fun looking at the theme of Éadaí the last 2 weeks. We tie-dyed t-shirts and hung them up in our siopa.
6th Class are helping our Junior and Senior Infants to learn to read.

Learning to read
Every morning the boys and girls work in groups. The children enjoy board games, interactive activities, matching games and bingo. This is a fun way for the children to learn their sounds and they really enjoy it.

Junior and senior Infants 2018-2019
We went on our school tour and had a wonderful day. The Sun was shining, we got to play in a fantastic playground and then went to Dublin to imaginosity.
Memories from this year…..
We have been thinking about all the lovely things we did this year in school. We wrote about our favourite memory this year. Take a look at our beautiful writing!
We had a chat with Saoirse and Ella about their favourite times in senior infants this year…….
It was really good being in the classroom with the Junior Infants because we were able to help them when they were stuck. I am looking forward to 1st class because we will have new work and a new teacher.Ella
I loved senior infants because we did loads of art. I am looking forward to next year because I will get to know my friends even better!Saoirse
Summer is here!
We went for a walk in the grass this morning, to mark the beginning of summer. We took off our shoes and socks and ran in the grass, which was covered in dew. We felt very grounded after it and ready for the day ahead! We wrote about our experience in class afterwards.
We had a drumming workshop last Friday. We really enjoyed it and got to make lots of noise!
We come up with all of the ideas ourselves during Aistear, and we have to work together to solve problems.
In the jungle
We are creating a jungle scene, using recycled cardboard as our background. We are constructing different types of trees using a wide variety of materials, all of which will be used again.
We worked together to write a story. We used our jungle as a setting for our story, photographed it using the iPad and used Comic Life to write our story. Here is a sample below. We will publish it when we are finished – watch this space!
We created some writing about our imaginary house on Strawberry Street. Some of the children also created advertisements for their estate agents.
We love art!
We made Easter flower baskets, using 100% recycled materials. At Scoil San Treasa we are members of a social enterprise called ReCreate. To find out more about the work that ReCreate carry out, click on the link below
We use our Aistear sessions to explore lots of different artistic processes, and we enjoy working with a wide variety of materials.
We are using the app ‘How to train your monster to read’ with the children in junior infants, senior infants and first class. The children can work on their sounds and blending at home as well as in school in this fun and engaging way.
The Juniors and Senior infants play board games, use the interactive white board and use ipads to reinforce their knowledge of phonics.
At Scoil San Treasa, we are lucky to have lots of space outside! We grow lots of flowers, fruit and vegetables and we are hoping to have an outdoor classroom soon.
We take part in circle time sessions once a week to help develop resilience, learn how to resolve conflict and reach our full potential and as citizens within our school.
