Merry Christmas Everyone!

December has flown by in Junior and Senior Infants and we’ve been very busy in the run up to Christmas. Here are some of the activities we completed this month.

 

To get into the Christmas spirit we went carol singing with the whole school in the Discovery Park.

In art we made owl babies by sponge painting after we read the book Owl Babies.

We painted and used crepe paper to make Christmas robins and also created a choir of singing reindeer!

In play we created Santa’s Workshop. We had great fun making toys and wrapping them, building his workshop with bricks and making our own toys in junk art.

We wrote letters to Santa and posted them and we were very excited to get a letter back which the postman delivered to us!

 

Senior Infants were working hard learning tricky words this month and practiced making them from play dough as well as writing them in sentences.

We learned lots of information about nocturnal animals such as owls, bats, badgers and foxes.

We performed in our school play ‘Superstar.’ We were angels and animals.

We learned all about the Nativity and birth of Jesus in Religion and practiced our cutting skills to create these Nativity scenes.

As a treat for Christmas we went to the cinema to see ‘The Star.’

Finally we were thrilled to receive a visit from Santa and have a Christmas party! 🙂

Merry Christmas everyone and Happy New Year from everyone in the Junior Room! 🙂
