Day at the playground!

September24

In junior infants we managed to fill our cookie jar yesterday because we’ve been so well behaved for the first month in school.
As a little reward, we made a trip to Edenmore playground!
It was great fun! 😄

We love learning rhymes in Junior Infants!

September24

Every week we learn a new nursery rhyme. So far we’ve learnt twinkle twinkle, hickory dickory dock, Mary Mary quite contrary and this week we learnt Humpty Dumpty!
This sense of rhyming is great for developing our phonemic awareness.
We based our art activity on Humpty Dumpty. Take a look at what we created!

We have been learning about all of the different colours!

September20

We read the story of Elmer the elephant in school last week. It was a great story and taught us all about the different colours of the patchwork elephant.
We designed our very own patchwork elephants.
We also did a colour hunt out in the yard, identifying lots of objects of different colours 🙂 We took note of the leaves, bikes, trees, etc we found in our books.

Sounds of the week!

September14

In Junior Infants we are using the jolly phonics programme to learn our sounds. We looked at ‘s’ and ‘a’ last week, singing songs, listening to stories and coming up with words starting with ‘s’ and ‘a’.
This week, we are learning the sounds ‘t’ and ‘i’.

This could be good to work on at home too 😁

We have been busy working hard in Junior Infants over the last 3 weeks, matching items and sorting similar items into sets!
We sorted objects by colour, by size and by shape! We had great fun.

A lovely bunch 😁

September11

During circle time over the last two weeks we have been trying really hard to get to know everyone’s name! We also sang the name song in our music lessons using dabbledoo!

We then designed beautiful flowers with our names on them and created a bouquet display of them!
