This October, the Junior Classroom have been as busy as ever!
As it’s the last month of Autumn, the children printed their own Colourful Autumnal Trees using wooden corks to brighten up our classroom!
In Science, the children learned about the planets in our Solar System and displayed the pattern of the planets on black sugar paper. They also learned a “Mnemonic” (Memory Trick) to remember the pattern of the planets. “Many Vile Earthlings Munch Jam Sandwiches Under Newspaper Piles!
In preparation for Christmas, the children had to design their own Christmas Card this month so that they will be ready in time for families to buy them in December. Didn’t they do a great job!!
The children also visited the local Fire Station to further support work covered in SPHE & SESE on Fire Safety. They particularly enjoyed playing the role of fire officer on the day!
During the month, the children continued to enjoy learning new skills in Rugby with Noel Devlin. They are really looking and playing the part!!
In Maths, the children played many board games together this month. First Class enjoyed playing Snakes and Ladders together and Junior & Senior Infants played Halloween Roll and Cover with their partner.
In preparation for Halloween, the children made their own egg carton spooky spiders in Art!
The children particularly enjoyed designing their own Number Monsters this month in Maths many of which are very spooky and scary!
In Drama, the children played many cooperative games such as “Ghost, Ghost, Witch” which follows the same principle as the game “Duck, Duck, Goose”
They also managed to write Halloween Cards to their Penpals in Finland 🙂
Finally, on Friday, 28th October, the children dressed up in costume for Halloween. Well done to all the children on creating such colourful and creative costumes!
Happy Halloween Everybody!
