It has been fascinating watching our Caterpillars transform! We cannot believe how big they got! This week, they have started to make their cocoons.

We also made some lovely artwork of Symmetrical Butterflies using Black Paint and Pastels.

Senior Infants really enjoyed Literacy Week as we had lots of fun activities planned.

We invited parents in to read a range of books with the class, and this sparked great excitement as the children got to show their parents all the fantastic work they have been doing.

We also got to go visit the local library in Richmond Barrack's where Helen read lots of wonderful stories to the children.

We ended the week by writing our very own class story "Adventures of Getting to School" and we had very enthusiastic authors and illustrators producing brilliant work!

The month of October was a busy and fun packed month for Senior Infants!

At the beginning of October we were invited over to Inchicore library to watch a performance called 'Bake' by Paul Curley. We had lots of fun watching and participating in the show!

We had so much fun in the lead up to Halloween making slime potions in Aistear and designing and decorating halloween decorations and art pieces. We participated in the school Halloween walk and we all dressed up in fantastic costumes and ended our 1st term having our spooky halloween party!

This year parents will not have to pay for school books and copies thanks to the Government Free Book scheme. There will still be a small charge to pay for other costs but this is to be confirmed at a later date.

Our second class made their First Holy Communion in St. Michaels church on Saturday. It was a wonderful celebration and the children looked so lovely and made all of us very proud.

Over the last few weeks, we have been working so hard on writing short stories which we put together to publish our very own class book! Our book is called "A Collection of Stories by First Class." We are all amazing authors and illustrators in Room 1!

This week is also very exciting for us as we are learning all about the life cycle of a butterfly. Today our caterpillars arrived! We cannot wait to watch them transform into beautiful painted lady butterflies. There are four stages in the life cycle which are;

1.Eggs- Butterflies lay their eggs on a leaf or a stem of a plant.

2.Caterpillars- Caterpillars hatch from their egg and they are very hungry! Their main job is to eat lots of plants and leaves. This reminded us of one of our favourite stories "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle.

3.Chrysalis- When a caterpillar is full, they make a cocoon for themselves using their silk.

4.Butterflies- Caterpillar transforms while in the chrysalis and turns into a beautiful butterfly.

We have had a wonderful exhibition of our children's art work in our school this week.

Each child in our school has a piece of their art framed on on display. We had visitors from the community invited to see them yesterday and all parents and pupils are visiting the exhibition also.

It is fantastic to see such an amazing display of talent.
