Junior Classroom

The Junior Infants, Senior Infants and First Class are taught by Ms. Wilson. As you can see from the walls, they love to do art and make lots of exciting things! They enjoy singing songs, playing on the computers, playing in the sand and reading.

King Midas and the Golden Touch

Date posted: 4th April 2011 | Category Class Work, History, Junior Classroom |

During March, the Infant Classroom learned about the Greek Myth, King Midas. They drew a picture story of what they had learned from the story. Here are some picture stories!!

King Midas was so greedy at the start of the story. He made a wish asking for everything he touched to turn to gold!

By the end of the story, King Midas had learned his lesson-not to be greedy and to be happy with what he had!

On Tuesday, 28th March, a local historian, Michael Moylan visited Junior & Senior Infants as part of Book Week in the school. The children were told many stories, most notably, the story of Cúchulainn. The opportunity to dress up in costume from various historical eras was a highlight of the day for the children!

The boys dressed up as soldiers and pirates!

 The girls were dressed as ladies in beautiful dresses and of course hats!

The children really enjoyed this interactive history workshop of storytelling and costume. Here are more photos to show off their costumes!

An Irish soldier!

An Egyptian Princess!

A Japanese Princess!

A Fair Lady!

A Country Girl!

A Pirate!

At the end of the session, the children were allowed to wear their costumes back to their classroom for the rest of the Infant Day! This was a real treat and the costumes really made a difference to how hard the children worked! It was great fun and definitely something the children would love to do again!

A Very Different Infant Classroom!
