Another month has flown by in the Junior Room and there has been lots of exciting and interesting things happening in our classroom!
First of all our caterpillars grew and grew, turned into chrysalis’ and eventually 3 butterflies hatched out. We set them free (after feeding them for a few days) in our school flower beds.
We learned about the life cycle of a butterfly in SESE and completed worksheets on this topic.
We also made colourful butterflies in art and sponge painted green leaf backgrounds to stick them onto.
Junior Infants were busy playing games in Maths and revising their numbers.
We also learned a lot about water in our world this month. We labelled different places we find water around us and completed experiments to see which materials were waterproof.
We recorded which materials absorbed water and which didn’t.
Also in SESE we learned about the lives of lighthouse keepers and the job they did in the past. Then we made our own ‘Flashy Lighthouses’ in art, they are lovely and colourful, boats and ships would definitely see them on the coastline!
Finally Senior Infants were busy constructing skyscrapers in play. They were pretty tall by the time they’d finished!!!
