JUNIOR INFANTS

 

November:

November has been a very busy month in our classroom! We have started Gymnastics and we really enjoy it! Every Friday, we get to walk to the local hall to play football! We love the walk to the hall!!

This month, we have also been very busy preparing for our school play! On Thursdays, we get to travel by bus to the local hall to practice it! We love going on trips on the bus!! We have worked extremely hard on our play and hope you all enjoy it!

In the school hall, we have a remembrance tree which helps us remember all the people who have gone to heaven; “In November, we remember”. We worked hard on colouring and writing names on leaves which our parents/guardians helped us do. We are very proud to see them in the hall.

We have also started Winter/Christmas art which has got us very excited for Christmas time!! Our fairy; “Junior” brought us an “Elf on the Shelf” and every day he is sitting in a different place around the room!

Our class teddy; “Davy the Dolphin” has been visiting all our houses and is having a great time! He gets to come home with us because we have been doing such great work!

Next month, we will be doing “25 Days of Kindness” as a countdown to Christmas! Each day, we will open a door on our Advent calendar and read the act that we should do that day e.g. “Smile at someone today!”. We hope to do these tasks at home and at school which we know our “Elf” will be very happy about!

Along with all of this, we have been working very hard on our handwriting and all of our workbooks! We even get stickers for all our hard work! 

Take a look at some more new photos of us this month! 

 

October:

October has been a fantastic month for our Junior Infants!! We have settled in to school life and are really enjoying being part of our school!! We have all been busy practising for our School Play – “Goldilocks and the three Bears”. We know we are going to be amazing on stage and can’t wait for you all to see it!!

We have been taking part in the “Fit 4 Class Primary School Athletics Programme” and have really been enjoying it!! After the ten weeks of this programme, we even get to receive a certificate for all our hard work!!

We started “Aistear” this month and have loved taking part in all the exciting areas – Arts and Crafts, Small World, Role Play and Construction. Our themes this month are: Autumn and Halloween.

Junior Infants also started to learn letters and sounds this month and have been enjoying all the jingles that go with each letter!

We dressed up for Halloween and had wonderful costumes! Have a look at our photos and see can you recognise us! 

Enjoy!!

 

September:

In September, we welcomed an amazing group of children to our school – “Junior Infants!!!!”. September was an extremely busy and exciting month in our classroom! We were all very enthusiastic about making new friends and starting a new school!!

Our teacher took us on a school tour and we got to learn about all the fun new places in our school!  We made beautiful art pieces on our first day and got our photographs taken – We were even on the paper!!!! On our first day of school, we got to meet a fairy who lives in our classroom. Her name is “Junior”. We leave drawings outside her door and they are gone in the morning!!!! She even writes us letters back!!

We were all very excited about starting our new school books and getting stickers for our amazing work!!

Take a look at some of our photos to see what we have been getting up to!! Enjoy!!!
