As ever we’ve been busy in December in the Junior Room! Our Play topic was the North Pole. We learned about animals, houses and nature there.
In Gaeilge we had fun playing Biongó with our partners!
In Art we made Christmas Trees by weaving wool through paper plates we painted. We painted Polar Bears as well, continuing our North Pole theme.
In SESE we learned all about Irish explorer Tom Creane. He travelled to Antarctica! We discovered interesting facts about Polar Bears and found out where the North & South Poles are as well as the Equator, we labelled a globe with these places.
We discussed Winter and found out ways to help nature out such as feeding the birds. We also read a Christmas story called The Christmas Spider, who decorated a tree with sparkly webs and we made our own sparkly, web covered trees!
Senior Infants were busy counting and colouring in Christmas Maths.
In RE we learned the story of Christmas and made an Advent Wreath to count down the weeks to Christmas Day as well as keeping track using our Advent Calendar!
Finally we were delighted to perform our Christmas Musical “Hosanna Rock” in St Mary’s Church. It was fantastic to see so many families there and welcome them back to school after, especially when a special visitor called in!!!
Wishing everyone a happy and peaceful Christmas, see you in 2023!!!
