December has been full of fun in the Junior Room. In Art and Religion we learned all about the story of The Nativity. We created these lovely scenes of Jesus who was born in a stable. We also made sparkly and bright Christmas Trees from paper plates.
Our play topic was The North Pole! We had fun making presents in junk art, building Santa’s Workshop in construction, making decorations from play dough and creating a small world scene of the North Pole.
In Maths Senior Infants have been learning all about spacial relations and drew Rudolph in lots of different places like between the clouds and on the roof.
In SPHE we were learning all about being a good friend, we read stories about being a good friend and drew pictures showing us being good friends to our classmates.
After learning all about electricity in November it was great to welcome Niamh from Anyone for Science to our school, she taught us lots of interesting information about static electricity.
In English we read a poem ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Christmas Lights’ and coloured in Christmas lights & Senior Infants wrote sentences all about night time.
In SESE this month we have been looking at the differences between day and night. We drew pictures to illustrate these after playing a sorting game.
We had a super night performing our show with the Funky Kids!
Finally we were very excited to welcome a special visitor to our class ……….SANTA!
Merry Christmas Everyone!!
