Welcome To The Junior and Senior Infant Class Blog!

Christmas Aistear!

We are loving our Christmas Aistear play areas so far. We have a Santa's Workshop Role Play Area, mini elves in the small world, Christmas painting where we are free to create our own Christmas creations, and a construction area where we have been building santa's workshop, santa's home and even sleighs!

Maths

In the Junior and Senior Infant room we love to be active during maths lessons! 

Here are some shapes pictures the Junior Infants made.

Here are some of our Junior Infants doing grouping activities together.

Science Week!

Junior and Senior Infants demonstrated the 'dancing raisins experiment for all the other classrooms! We also got to do science activities such as use magnifying glasses, examine how magnets work, and watch the magic pepper experiment! But the most fun (and messiest!!) thing we did was make SLIME! 

Halloween!

We all looked amazing for Halloween! For our dress up day we played Halloween dancing games, we went on a witches and wizards walk, and we had a Halloween picnic in our classroom!

 

Baking!

Everybody had a great time baking with Louise. We baked cupcakes, and we even made our own icing and decorated them.

Eeyore's visit!

We were all delighted when Deirdre's pet rabbit Eeyore came in to visit us for the day. We learned how to take care of a rabbit, and we even got to pet him and take him for a walk...on his lead!

Aistear

Aistear is one of our favourite things to do at school! So far we have done themes such as myself, Autumn and homes in Aistear. We take turns to use play areas such as role play, small world, junk art and construction. It allows us to learn in a fun and creative way. Have a look at our photos below!

Autumn Art

We had lots of fun doing leaf rubbings and paintings with autumn colours for art!
