It has been a busy start to 2019 in the Junior Classroom. We’ve learned about lots of new and exciting topics. In play we learned all about School and The Pet Shop.
We made school items in Playdough.
We built classrooms and schools in Small World and Construction.
We made items in Junk Art.
We also had fun in Role Play acting out in the classroom.
We also explored the theme of Pet Shops this month. We made Playdough animals and pet related items.
In Construction we made pet home like aquariums, rabbit and gerbil hutches and dog and cat baskets.
In Junk Art the boys and girls made pets and pet toys.
We found various pets in the sand and matched them to their homes.
Finally we made our own pet shop in the classroom and enjoyed acting out going to the shop in Role Play.
In Art we looked at the topic of Winter and made snowflakes using oil pastels and then painted over them with water colour paints.
We made winter mittens from tissue paper and contact and put them on display on our classroom window.
In Gaeilge we have learned all about ‘An Aimsir’ and made these colourful umbrellas.
Finally we made Winter Penguins using ‘cold’ coloured paints for the background.
In SESE we learned all about the topic of Winter, we sorted some winter clothes and drew pictures of Winter Scenes.
Also in SESE we were learning all about our sense of sight and hearing. We went on a walk outside to listen for different sounds and played games about what we could see around us. Then we coloured in pictures of things we like to look at and listen to.
Junior Infants have been revising the number 2 in Maths, while Senior Infants were learning ordinal numbers, ordering stories from what happened 1st to last.
Meanwhile Senior Infants continue to learn new ‘Tricky Words’ each week.
Finally, and also in English we had a lovely morning at our local library listening to stories and exploring books with Mary the librarian.
