Summer Days in Junior Infants

This is the house that I built…..

Junior and Senior Infants constructed their own imaginative homes. Some children also created homes for animals.

Junior Infants- It’s a bug’s life!

Junior Infants enjoyed learning about Minibeasts. They enjoyed a minibeast hunt around the school and collected lots of different minibeasts including snails, slugs, worms, spiders and even a frog! The children also made their own minibeasts using playdoh.

Pirates and Under the Sea

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.

Samba Drumming- Junior Infants and The Haven

Junior Infants and The Haven enjoyed a Samba Drumming Workshop. The children really enjoyed this workshop and experienced playing different types of drums and instruments.

Christmas Plays 2016

November in the Junior Infant Room

Junior Infants explored the topic of food and shopping during this month. In the classroom there was a role play supermarket area set up and the children thoroughly enjoyed doing their shopping each morning. The children created their own supermarkets using a range of construction bricks and lego. They also made different foods using playdoh. The children also had fun in the sand area where they explored food items and the different food containers that can be filled using the sand. The children made apple and potato prints using paint and also enjoyed exploring their sense of taste by tasting lots of different foods. Finally the children visited the local supermarket, Heneghan’s Costcutters, where the shop owner, Ray, showed and explained to the children the different areas in the shop. Thanks Ray and Yvonne for the yummy treats.
