It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas....
We performed in front of the whole school today. It was magical! We can't wait until tomorrow, when we will perform for our parents!!!
Aistear - The Pizzeria
12/11/'18 - 16/11/'18
This week in Aistear the children learned all about The Pizzeria. In the role play area they learned all about ordering food and running a kitchen. In the construction area they built their own pizzerias. The children used play dough to make pizzas and covered them with their favourite toppings and at the last area they made their own pizzas using pitta breads and went up to the staff room to watch them going into the oven.
Junior Infants had great fun dressing up for Halloween. They had a Halloween disco with the Senior Infants and enjoyed playing in Aistear while dressed up in their brilliant costumes.
Aistear - Halloween
22/10/'18 - 25/10/'18
This week in Aistear the children explored the theme of Halloween and had great fun doing it. They built haunted houses at the construction station, played trick or treat at the role play station, made skeletons and magic wands in art and made all sort of things including potions, spiders and bats using playdough.
This week is 'Maths Week' and so the Junior Infant children went on a trail to try to find lots of different shapes and numbers on the school yard.
This week we explored the school grounds for signs of autumn. The children found lots of different leaves, ladybirds, mushrooms and other things and enjoyed using the clipboards to assist in marking their findings.
Aistear - The Home
8/10/18 - 12/10/18
This week the children further explored the theme of 'The Home'. This was done through stories and discussions as well as through role play, construction, colouring pictures of houses and building them using play dough.
Aistear - The Home
1/10/18 - 5/10/18
This week in Junior Infants the children started Aistear. They really enjoyed it and have started exploring the theme of 'The Home' through role play, construction, small world and creative writing.
Teddy Bears' Picnic
Today the Junior Infant children brought their favourite Teddy Bears to school and we took them outside to have a picnic and to show them around the school. We even took them up to the woodland walk to see if we would find any other teddy bears having a picnic!
