Junior Infants B (Ms. O'Rourke)





Welcome to Ms' O'Rourke's Junior Infant Class!

Have a look below to see some of the activities we have been getting up to.

September in Junior Infants

The children have been busy during Aistear this month. The children particularly loved building their own school at the construction station, as well as engaging in mark-making activities and play-doh!

Patterns

Junior Infants have been learning all about patterns using two colours. Have a look at the wonderful patterns the children created!

Autumn is here!

We have been learning all about the signs of Autumn in Junior infants. Some of the children gathered up pine cones, leaves and other items found during Autumn and added them to our Autumn table.

For National Tree Day, we planted a holly tree with Ms. Kelly. First, we put the holly tree in the ground. Then we filled the hole with soil. We covered the soil in newspaper and tree bark. Finally, we watered the soil and the tree.

Houses and Homes



This month, Junior Infants have been learning all about houses and homes. Have a look at what the children have been doing during Aistear!


The Three Little Pigs

The children have been learning all about 'The Three Little Pigs' in literacy and in drama. The children were set the challenge of making a house out of straw, sticks or bricks, just like the three little pigs.

Happy Halloween!

Santa's Workshop

This month in Aistear, we are exploring Santa's workshop and how the elves help Santa in the lead up to Christmas. The children in Junior Infants have been busy designing, creating, wrapping and delivering toys, just like Santa's elves!

In Aistear and drama, we have been learning about the Arctic and some of the animals that live there. We even decided to make our own snow!

Junior Infants A (Ms. Lucas)

Welcome to Ms Lucas' Class

We have been having lots of fun in Junior Infants. Have a look at some of our activities below!


Halloween

We loved dressing up for Halloween! Have a look below to see some of our spooky costumes!


Writing

We have been practising pre-writing skills. So far we have learned how to write horizontal lines, vertical lines, circles and crosses. We love writing on our whiteboards!

Maths

In Maths we have been learning lots of early maths skills. In September we practised sorting items and creating patterns with colours. We worked as a team to sort objects into sets based on their shapes, sizes and colours. We also learned about patterns. We created 2 colour patterns by printing with sponges!

Aistear

We have Aistear time each day. We learn about a new theme every month. This month we are learning about homes. Lots of the boys and girls built buildings and homes during their playtime. You can see some of their amazing creations here!

Science Week

For Science week we did lots of activities and experiments in the classroom.

We created a lava lamp by mixing different materials together.

We created a rainbow by pouring warm water onto a plate with skittles.

We created buildings using spaghetti and marshmallows. It was very tricky! Science week was lots of fun!

Autumn Prints

During Autumn we explored the different lines and textures of leaves. We used crayons to create beautiful prints of the leaves. You can see some of our artwork here!

3-D Shapes

We have been learning about 3-D shapes in maths. We explored our classroom to see if we could find some 3-D shapes! You can see the shapes we found below. What 3-D shapes can you find in your home?
