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.
