Senior Infants

Introducing Senior Infants.



Moate Show

This year we entered lots of poetry, handwriting,  painting and crafts into Moate Show which took place on 26th August. Have a look at our proud prizewinners.


Junior Tour

On Friday 22nd June 38 little people from Junior & Senior infants & First class set off on our tour.

First stop was Athlone Fire Station, there we met Barry & Anthony who gave us a great welcome!

They showed us the fire suits, the big yellow helmets and then the huge fire engines. Finally we all got a go spraying with the hose, that was the best bit!

Then we headed for Coosan Point where we had our picnic, played in the playground and fed the friendly ducks.

On the way home we stopped for ice pops.

Ms O’Connell took lots of photos of us having fun. Have a look..





Awards / Open Day

Awards / Open Day

Thursday June 21st was a very big day for all of us in Kilcleagh N.S.

We finally were able to see our finished art pieces – the 4 completed montages were on display in our gym.

Everybody had worked on a canvas and there was great excitement as the children searched for their own. Our Artist In Residence – Rosemarie Langtry was on hand to open the exhibition and we thank her for her hard work.

The school is, as always, very grateful to Westmeath County Council for their contribution to the project.  We could not do this work without their financial input.

Next on the agenda were the end of year school awards – our Sportsperson of the Year for 2018 and the Award for Contribution to School Life:

George from 6th class and Sean from 5th class were the deserving recipients.

We also had lots of little visitors on the day – they came with their parents to see what their junior infant classroom looks like and to meet each other before big school starts on August 31st.

We had a very busy afternoon – but we still weren’t finished as “Summersong” was on at 7 pm the same evening. It went really well and we said a bittersweet goodbye to our 6th class.

We also raised €500.47 towards school funds for which we are extremely grateful.

We took lots of pictures, so have a look…


Sports Day

Wednesday 13th June was sports day!

Everybody was involved and took part in the different events – wellie throw, puc fada,

hurdles, water relay, jigsaw relay, races, shoe relay and lots more.

The eight teams were: Scrambled Legs, Castledaly Ballers, Purple Pygmy Puffs, Kilcleagh Kangaroos, Runner Beans, Ferraris, Flashing Dogs, & Cuddle Warriors and “Castledaly Ballers ” came out on top.

We all had great fun as you will see from our photos.

Animal Magic Wildlife Displays

We had a visit from Denis and Rosie from “Animal Magic Wildlife Displays.”

We met some wonderful animals.

First there was Lola – the amputee meerkat who was missing her front paw.

Next we met the lizards, Betty, Basil & Bruce.

Then we were introduced to “Poppy” the softest chinchilla.

We saw Emma the falcon, who flew over our heads for some chicken pieces.

Last of all we each got a chance to hold Fiachra, the boa constrictor who loved Mrs. Connolly’s sunglasses!

We all enjoyed our morning visitors. See our slideshow…


Spring Has Finally Sprung

Junior & Senior Infants have been very busy planting and learning about new growth.

We planted strawberries, potatoes, spinach, lettuce, turnips, carrots & chives. We will water them and eventually put them outside to grow big and strong. Hopefully we will get to taste them before the summer holidays.

Have a look at our photos.


The Moon

Junior & Senior Infants have been learning about “The Moon.”

We talked about when and where we see the moon. We looked at all the different shapes the moon can take. We learned words like “crescent”, “full moon”, “rocket” and “astronaut.” We learned a song about the moon called “I see the moon.”

We wrote about the moon, we drew pictures of the moon and then we made our very own moons using pegs, counters, márla and string.

In music we listened to a beautiful piece of music called “The Moonlight Sonata” by Beethoven.

Last of all we read a story called “Guess How Much I Love You?”

The answer is “To the Moon and Back!”

Here is a link to our song. I See The Moon.

Have a look at our pictures……….
