This month the Junior Room have had great fun in The Restaurant. We built our own restaurants in the Small World area and acted out in Role Play. We also created art related to the topic such as chef hats and pizzas in Junk Art and Playdough.
In Art we looked at warm and cool colours and made hot air ballooons showing these colours. We also looked at the artist Wassily Kandinsky who used warm and cool colours in his work. We made our own paintings in his style!
Valentines Day was celebrated when we made owls for our families.
In Maths we have continued in our work on number, Junior Infants have been learning all about the number 3 and Senior Infants the number 8.
As part of the Green Schools programme we made Bird Food Cupcakes from seeds, nuts, raisins and fat. We hung these around the grounds on Friday and by Monday they were gone! The birds are very hungry in Wandesforde in the cold weather.
We have had great fun learning new skills in basketball with coach Joe Byrne.
All in all a busy and productive month and we’re looking forward to more fun and learning in March!
