Art in Senior Infants!

We love art in senior infants, especially painting. We looked at examples of art from two famous artists; James Rizzi and George Klee. We then created two of our own paintings based on their work. We used paint and blocks to print a castle and sun based on the work of George Klee. We also drew and painted our own birds based on the work of James Rizzi. Our beautiful art work was displayed during our Art Exhibition, we hope you were impressed! 🙂

Dancing Raisins

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Equipment: jar of water, jar of clear fizzy drink (must be VERY fizzy)
1. Drop a handful of raisins into a jar of water. *They sink to the bottom.*

2. Drop a handful of raisins into a jar of freshly opened fizzy drink.
*After a while the raisins will rise to the surface, sink, rise again, thus dancing up and down.*


• The raisins are heavier than the drink so they sink to the bottom.

• At the bottom of the fizzy drink they collect bubbles of carbon dioxide and now the raisins + bubbles are lighter than the drink so they rise to the surface.

• When they reach the surface the gas bubbles burst and the raisins sink; then they collect more gas bubbles.

Sixth class experiment was on how fizzy drinks effect on different objects.The preschools science experiment was on spiders and they had a real spider with them in a glass case.Fifth class experiment was on electricity. They made lighthouses and use a light bulb, a battery and wires to light them up.All parents were invited to the exhibition.Sixth class did a survey to parents who they drink coke again?Would they let their family drink again after they saw what happened to the teeth?Majorette said they wouldn’t drink coke after they saw teeth.All the other class experiments were excellent too.

Easter Bonnet Parade 2014

On the 10th of April 2014 St.Clare Primary School had their annual Easter Bonnet Parade. Their were lots of creative and imaginative bonnets of all shapes and sizes. They were very colorful bonnets.

Some of my favourites was one that was shaped like a playground and one that was shaped like an Easter Island head.

The parade lasted 1 hour and 45 minutes. Classes from Junior Infants to Sixth Class gathered in the hall to present their Easter Bonnets. The parade was presented by Ms. Moran stated that she had never seen such beautiful bonnets in all the years we have held it.
