Junior Infants

Mrs O'Neill

October was a very busy month for all the Junior Infants. We were learning all about Halloween and the season of Autumn.  We went on our Autumn trail to find signs of Autumn and we found signs of Autumn everywhere. We found Autumn leaves, conkers, chestnuts, berries and pine cones. We collected and sorted these items and displayed them on our Autumn table. It was so much fun learning and discovering outside with our classmates. We learned a lovely song called the Dingle Dangle Scarecrow. We liked our song so much we created our very own Scarecrow, they look amazing on our Art board.

Halloween this year was spooktacular. We dressed up in our Halloween costumes and had a super Halloween party in school. We made delicious chocolate apples, spider Oreos, scary Halloween masks and colourful magic wands. We loved listening to Halloween stories in our school library and dancing at the disco with our friends. Later in the day we relaxed and listened to our buddy readers from Mrs. O hÉithir’s 4th class. It was a fantastic day.We had a lovely rest over the midterm break and managed to do some trick or treating too. Mrs. O’Neill caught some of the action on the camera, so make sure to take a look at our lovely pictures!


Over the past few weeks we have been very busy in Junior Infants. We have met our new teacher and all our new fantastic friends. We are learning lots of new and exciting skills, facts and activities both inside and outside the classroom. Some of the new things we enjoy learning about are our letters, poems, songs, stories, early Mathematical activities, interesting facts about world around us, Art activities and PE lessons. Everyday in Junior Infants is super – we get to meet all of our friends and have lots of fun on our many learning adventures.

Take a little look at some of the pictures that Mrs. O’Neill has captured during our first couple of weeks in Junior Infants. Can you spot us creating our ‘We all belong together’ friendship caterpillar with some of the Fifth Class girls as part of our Friendship Week?  We also created little dolls and enjoyed taking part in our role play ‘At the Doctors during Aistear. We learned a lovely poem called ‘Furry Squirrel’ and the Fourth Class girls helped us to gather some Autumn leaves to decorate his tail. We have been so busy. Mrs. O’Neill is very proud of all our hard work.
