We had great fun making our Valentine's.... 'Hoo Loves you?'. We couldn't wait to give them to Mummies and Daddies! We love them lots!
We had a lovely visit from our Grandparents today! Ms Finnegan enjoyed meeting everyone and was so happy everyone made a big effort to travel from all corners of the country. The children had a great time showing their Grandparents their work and giving them a little tour of out classroom
We have been getting very excited about Christmas over the last couple of weeks. Our Aistear theme has been 'Santa's Workshop'. Today we went to the Pantomime at the dlr Mill Theatre Dundrum to see 'Aladdin'. It definitely got us in the Christmas spirit! It was so much fun travelling on a bus together and everyone was as good as gold! This week our Christmas elf Twinkle appeared! He has been getting up to all sorts of mischief hiding in our classroom. He has been sent here by Santa to learn how to be gentle as everyone knows we have a very gentle and kind class so Santa selected us to teach him. We know he will have fantastic reports about us!
On Tuesday we performed two poems and songs for our family and friends! We were amazing and we hiope everyone enjoyed it. Next stop... Broadway!
We have been enjoying learning about Advent in the run up to Christmas and have been creating wonderful works of Christmas Art.
Our Aistear theme for the month of November was Houses and Homes. We had a great fun creating our own houses and we even made a little village with our creations! We learned about electricity in science and we conducted our own science experiment! We made paper dance with static electricity and we made our friends hair stand on end. We have been making a big effort to be gentle in the yard and we earned a gentle star where Ms FInnegan gave us a popcorn party!
We had great fun dressing up in aid of Trick or Treat for Temple Street! We made slime buns and had a Hallowe'en fashion show! We hope you have a safe and happy Hallowe'en.
This month our Aistear theme has been ‘The Restaurant’. We have been role playing – the waiter, waitress, chef and customers and using all the language involved. We made pizzas in junk art, as well as lovely dinner plates. We constructed restaurants, made menus and food using play dough. We have painted Autumn reflections, Halloween art and much much more. We are looking forward to Mummy’s and Daddy’s seeing some of our work this week. We have been doing literacy stations on Mondays and Wednesdays and have been practicing our sounds really well. We love Junior Infants! Have a look at our photos and see what we have been getting up to!
Today we were lucky enough to meet a real live hedgehog! We learned that hedgehogs are nocturnal, they like to eat insects and worms and they sleep in piles of leaves! They don't like being handled by lots of people so we were very calm and quiet when we met Almond. It was scuh a lovely surprise!
We have an actioned packed first month of school. Take a look at our photos to see what we have been getting up to!
We had a lovely first day in Junior Infants! We settled into our routine and school life in general so quickly! We have all made great friends so far and can't wait for the rest of the year ahead!
