This April Senior Infants explored the Space theme in Ms Dinan’s infant classroom. There was plenty to discover, with lots of fun and learning at every station. Children acted out a rocket launch at the home corner, with a spaceship they painted themselves and a backdrop they took lots of research and planning to paint also. They made jig-saws of planets, used an ipad to explore a 3D sun and planets, created a window picture and wrote sentences about what they saw. They also built rockets using magnetic shapes. A final station explored a planet surface with various rocks, stars and aliens. They used special sand for this that the class made in a science lesson the previous week to make a type of sand.
