Junior Infants

This week Junior Infants were learning all about the number 1. We also had our first turn with the IPads. It was a lot of fun!

This week we were very busy in Junior Infants! In maths we were learning about making patterns. In PE we were working on our throwing and catching. We were learning about our 5 senses in SESE. We had to sort the pictures into the right sense. We read ‘The Girl who Never makes Mistakes’ and ‘Beautiful Oops’. We were learning that it’s ok to make a mistake and everyone makes mistakes sometimes. In art we all got a page with a beautiful oops on it and we had to turn it into a picture!

We have had a busy week in Junior Infants! We have been learning about autumn, so we went on a nature walk looking for some signs of autumn. We learned and hedgehogs and squirrels. We made squirrels from different colour autumn leaves. In PE we were practicing our catching with beanbags. On Wednesday we carved pumpkins. We had a great day on Friday when we were all dressed up. We made Rice Krispie buns and had fun doing art with our buddies!
