We are really enjoying Seachtain na Gaeilge in Junior Infants. This week, the boys and girls from rang a cúig visited our class to play games as Gaeilge. We learned lots of new words from them and we made funny sentences together. On Pancake Tuesday, we ate delicious pancakes with lemon and sugar. Thank you to the Parents Association and the Student Council for providing them. Today, Giggles an fear grinn visited our class and we thought he was really funny. He sang songs, made balloons and told us jokes! We loved speaking to him as Gaeilge. As it will be St. Patrick's Day this weekend, we are getting ready to celebrate in our class. Check out our wonderful St. Patrick's Day crowns!
This week, we are celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge. We are trying to use as much Gaeilge as possible in Junior Infants. We love speaking as Gaeilge at school and at home! Yesterday, we went on a Treasure Hunt with Ms D'Arcy's class for Seachtain na Gaeilge!
Junior Infants have been busy learning all about houses and homes this month! We have learned the names of lots of types of houses, the rooms in our houses and different things we find at home. We have created different types of houses in art, built houses of different sizes, played with toy houses in our classroom, learned about houses as Gaeilge and we even set up an Estates Agents in Junior Infants! The children love choosing what types of houses to buy and sell. We have read lots of books about houses and homes such as The Three Little Pigs and the Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch. The boys and girls have also been very busy practising their new Tricky Words and we have started to use the school iPads to practise our reading. They are practising their Frásaí everyday and love to use them at school and at home!
This month, we are learning all about Houses and Homes in Junior Infants! This week, the boys and girls made houses with different materials and tested their strength!
We have been exploring and learning about 3D shapes in maths!
This week, we had our first Christmas play in big school. We really enjoyed learning our poems, singing songs and painting our t-shirts! Thank you to everyone that came to support us on the day. We also went to see Beauty and the Beast in Dundrum. It was our first time going on a school tour and we loved the show! Here are some pictures from the day!
We really enjoyed dressing up for Halloween and we helped to raise lots of money for Temple Street Children's Hospital.
That morning, we went to a fashion show where we all had the opportunity to show off our great costumes. After that, we did PE in our Halloween costumes! We all thought this was very funny. After lunch, Ms Moran and her 3rd class came to visit us. We loved guessing what the boys and girls were dressed up as. They even helped us with our Halloween maths! We really enjoyed their visit and hope they come to see us again soon.
This week, Junior Infants, 4th and 5th class went on a nature walk to Herbert Park. This month, we have been learning all about Autumn and the changes it brings. The older boys and girls helped us to find some signs of Autumn in the park. We had a scavenger hunt and collected conkers, Autumn leaves, twigs, acorns and much more! These will be great for the nature table in our classroom. The Junior Infants had great fun on their first school tour and are looking forward to their next trip!
Welcome to Junior Infants!
