Thank to the school's Active Team Partnership Committee for organising a visit to the library for the Junior Infant classes. Both classes visited the library on separate days. They walked from the school to the library where they were greeted by Mary the librarian. Mary read some lovely books to the class. She also played some really fun games with us as well. Both classes got to explore the children's section of the library and look at some books. We all had a great time and are looking forward to going there again!
Junior Infants really enjoyed the Science Fair that was held in the school a number of weeks ago. The Science Fair is held in the school every year to mark Science Week. 3rd and 4th classes had their Science Fair on Thursday whilst 5th and 6th classes held theirs on the Friday. It was very interesting to listen to and partake in some fun and exciting experiments.
This month in Aistear we are learning all about the restaurant. We are really enjoying it. Here are some photos of us doing some of the activities. We are pretending to make pizza ovens, making food from play dough and pretending to work in a restaurant. We are really enjoying and are looking forward to some of our parents joining us in Aistear over the next few weeks.
Last week Junior Infants B were learning all about small, medium and large. They really enjoyed the sorting activities. They worked in pairs to sort the teddies into small, medium and large on paper plates. They had great fun and as you can see they all enjoyed working together!
The boys and girls looked fantastic on the dress up day on Thursday before the midterm. We had great fun looking at each others costumes and strutted our stuff in a fashion show around the classroom. Take a look at our cool costumes......
The boys and girls in Rory's class also had time to carve a special cat pumpkin!
On October 25th we celebrated One Day Together at school. Educate Together turned 40 and the boys and girls in Junior Infants A and B had a great time at the dress up day and showed us some excellent dance moves at the disco to celebrate!! Take a look.....
Thank to Cormac's 4th class for inviting Junior Infants B to their classroom this week. 4th class had been learning lots about space as it had been space week. 4th class told Junior Infants B lots of interesting facts and information about outer space.
Junior Infants B got to participate in many space related activities too with 4th class. Thank you so much Cormac and 4th class. We had a great time!
Junior Infants B have been learning lots about home too in Aistear. We are really enjoying all of the different activities!
The girls and boys in Junior Infants A were using all of their new vocabulary about the home during Aistear this week. We had lots of fun playing at the different stations. The boys and girls were building houses and furniture and were very busy cooking, cleaning and doing jobs around the house! Take a look at what we got up to.....
We had a visit from some new members of the school on Friday. David and Darragh came to our classes to show us the brand new school wormery which will be used for the school garden.
The worms will be used to make compost to help the garden plants grow. There 100 hundred worms in the wormery and they will be fed using leftover food from the staff room. The worms were added to the soil on Friday and they came to visit us. We also watched Darragh and David add some apples to the soil so they would be fed.
We really enjoyed meeting our new wriggly friends!
