Junior Infants and The Haven class recently enjoyed a trip to Claremorris to Mc Mahon Park. The children loved this park and had a lovely walk around the lake. They also enjoyed feeding the ducks, geese and goslings. They also had the opportunity to enjoy their lunch outside in the beautiful weather we are having at the moment.
Junior Infants learnt about all the different animals that live on the farm. They learnt about The Life Cycle of the Chick. They also made some farm animal crafts. The children also had the opportunity to grow their own cress seeds and runner beans and they watched them grow throughout the weeks.
The theme in the Junior Infant room for February was Pirates and Under the Sea. The children learnt about pirates and the different types of creatures that live under the sea. The children enjoyed investigating what items float and sink in water, what materials attract to a magnet and they also had great fun making their own creations based on pirates and creatures under the sea using playdoh, sand and construction bricks. The children also made many different arts and crafts items.
This month Junior Infants learnt about the Polar Region and Polar Animals. They made beautiful Polar Arts and Crafts.
