Welcome to Rebecca’s Junior Infant page!

We have been very busy getting settled into school, learning our new friends names and getting started on our work!

This year we started by reading “Have You Filled a Bucket Today?” by Carol Mc Cloud. This year we will all try to be the best bucket fillers by showing kind hands, kind feet and kind words in school.

Throughout the year our wonderful work will be posted here for our families and friends to see.

So far we have been learning about homes within Aistear, using Play Doh, blocks and small word houses to explore this topic.

This month in Maths, we have been focusing on sorting, matching and classifying.

               

We have also been working very hard on our cutting skills. Below you can see our wonderful ‘s’ for snake cutting we did last week.

We had a great time learning about Space during Aistear!

During Aistear we made, witches capes, dancing skeletons and crazy potions!

These are some of the fun activities we got up to before our Halloween break!

We started putting all our recycling to use through Junk Art. We created trolleys, cash registrars and shopping baskets.

We had a great time on our first “school trip” to Lidl.

During our supermarket theme we concentrated on Bia (food) during our Gaeilge lessons. We learnt the song Bosca Lóin (lunch box). Take a listen to our wonderful singing!

Through phonics we have learnt the letter ‘o’ and created octopi with Kate and Fiona’s Junior Infant classes. Check it out on your way into school!

Science week fun!

Tie dying and experiment fun with 5th class buddies!

The Sam Maguire came to school!

We had great fun getting ready for Christmas, practicing our songs for our first class show, creating Winter art and exploring the Post Office and Santa’s work shop through Aistear.

       We took care of Rudolph in the stable.

  We practiced our letters with a toy cut and stick activity.

 

 

 

 

 

We had lots of fun sorting mail in the Post Office.

However, our Christmas fun came to an end and we said farewell to Pudding the Elf.

Here’s what we’ve been up to recently 

We learnt all about volcanoes through our Learn Together curriculum

We made use of the lovely sunshine to explore our shadows 

We took part in Engineering week

Our 5th class buddies taught us about gravity and we also tried out the spaghetti and marshmallow activity.  

    

Spring is here and we were lucky to go on our first school trip! We took the bus to The Mermaid in Bray to see the wonderful show Return of Spring.

We has some fun exploring what is magnetic in our classroom!
