Term Two…

Time is flying by in Junior Infants, we can’t believe that we are half way through Term Two already. We have been so busy learning lots of new letters, numbers, poems and songs. Our theme for Aistear last month was ‘People Who Help Us’ and we even made our very own ‘People Who Help Us’ books.

We have just completed our block of six gymnastics lessons with our visiting coaches. We had so much fun and learned so many new gymnastics skills and techniques during this time. We learned how to do forward rolls, use a springboard, perform balancing, strengthening and jumping activities. We are so proud of the certificates we were awarded on completion of our lessons.

Furthermore, we are focusing on the importance of daily exercise and healthy eating for a healthy body and mind. We are working on exercising more through the ‘Run a Mile Challenge’ and we continue to make healthy food choices through our food dudes lessons. Well done everyone on your fantastic efforts!

We are looking forward to learning all about St. Patrick, Spring Time and the various signs of seasonal change during this time, Seachtain na Gaeilge, Pets and Animals and Easter in the up and coming weeks.

Term One…

We have been very busy in Junior Infants. We are learning lots of new and exciting skills, facts and activities 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 the world around us, Art activities and PE lessons. Everyday in Junior Infants we get to meet our friends and have lots of fun on our many learning adventures, it is super!

Take a little look at some of the pictures that Mrs. O’Neill has captured during our Aistear Activities , Snuggle Story Time, Autumn Nature Walk and fantastic creations which we’ve made in the classroom.
