Chinese New Year
We are celebrating the Chinese New Year this week in Senior Infants. Kate and Dylan told us lots about it. They showed us red envelopes and told us how they have lucky money in them. We wrote some chinese characters and learned that it is the Year of the Pig.Jack brought in a chinese calendar. We pretended we were eating with chopsticks. They are really hard to use!!!!
A Special Visitor to the Circus!!
We got a big surprise today when PT Barnum, aka Tom, came to visit us during Aistear today. He is definitely the Greatest Showman. Thank you Tom.
We are all friends in Senior Infants
We had a lovely session in the Halla today, where we read a story about friendship. Then we divided up into four groups, where we chatted about being kind to everyone, how we are all unique and special, we shared ideas and suggestions on how to be a good friend to everyone. It was very interesting. We are good friends in Senior Infants!!!!
More Circus Fun
This week we are making Clown Flip Books and creating 'Escaped' posters as some animals have escaped from the circus and we are on the lookout for them. We are also building our own circuses in Small World, and creating some fabulous designs with pattern blocks. We use a large parachute to make the Big Top tent, we sit inside it and tell jokes, laugh and sing.....so much fun...
The circus is coming to town....
Our theme for Aistear this month is The Circus. We are in training to become clowns, learning to juggle, balance, play tricks and lots of other stuff.

We did some lovely Christmas activities with 2nd class. They helped us to make reindeer food, to design a Christmas bauble decoration, to decorate a Christmas cookie, (which we quickly ate up!!!), to use Christmas playdough and to colour Christmas pictures.
