Junior Infants

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 sensory trail to find signs of Autumn and we found signs of Autumn everywhere. We found and collected lots of beautiful yellow, red, orange and brown Autumn leaves. It was so much fun learning and discovering outside with my 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. 

We thoroughly enjoyed and had lots of fun with our Aistear activities. We love to play and during October our Aistear activities help us to learn all about ‘Me and my Family’ and ‘Halloween’. We really enjoyed our role play, small world imaginary play, junk Art, construction station, and sensory water play activities. Take a look at our pictures to see all the creativity and fun we got up to!

Halloween this year was spooktacular. We dressed up in our Halloween costumes and had a super time showing of our fabulous costumes to our friends in school. 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!


A big welcome to all our new, fantastic Junior Infants. Over the past couple of weeks we have been very busy in Room 1. We are learning lots of new and exciting skills, facts and activities inside and outside the classroom. Some of the new things we’ve been learning about are ‘Myself’ and ‘My Family’. We really enjoy learning our new poems and songs, listening to sounds all around us and stories. We’ve been learning some of our colours and during Maths time we’ve had lots of fun practising our sorting and matching skills. We’ve created some beautiful pieces of Art. Mrs. O’Neill caught some of our hard work on camera, so make sure to take a look at our lovely pictures! Every day in Junior Infants we get to meet our friends, play and have lots of fun on our many learning adventures, it is super!
