May has come and gone in the Junior Room and as always we’ve been busy this month!
Our play topic was ‘The Building Site’
We role played on site, worked in the sand, made constructions and various items related to building in junk art as well as making our own mini site in small world.
In English we drew plans for a building we’d like to construct and listed all the materials we would need to build it.
In Art we took inspiration from nature and made pretty blossom trees using crepe paper and bright, yellow, summer suns.
We wrote up what we have learned about the season of summer and made puffy paint to create delicious ice cream cones!
We had an interesting morning going on a nature walk to the Discovery Park. We spotted lots of signs of summer- green leaves, flowers growing, insects down by the river and we could hear lots of birds singing.
We had time after to head to the playground for some fun!
After our school tour to Hook Lighthouse and K-Bowl we drew pictures of our favourite activity.
In Maths Senior Infants were working on number and coloured pictures of crabs according to the number code. Meanwhile Junior Infants were working on cutting, colouring and gluing skills and created colourful rockets.
