Junior Infants

Mrs O'Neill

February was a very busy month in Junior Infants. The month began by celebrating St. Brigid’s Day. All the Junior Infants came together to create a beautiful St. Brigid’s Cloak. 

We really enjoyed making and eating our Pancakes on Pancake Tuesday, they were so yummy!

This month we have been learning all about Animals. We enjoyed listening to lots of animal stories and our favourite was probably Farmer Duck. The girls spoke about their pets and what makes a good pet. We learned how we need to take our pets to the Vet for a check up or when they’re feeling poorly. We loved playing the role of the Vet during Aistear and caring for all the sick animals. We also looked at the work of the farmer. We even made a farm during Aistear. Take a look at our fabulous creations.


We came back from our Christmas holidays full of energy and ready for lots of work and learning. This month we were learning all about clothes and hot / cold temperatures. We loved playing at the Clothes Shop, dressing the dolls and we even designed our own shoes during Junk Art time. We learned how to keep warm in the cold temperatures by wrapping up in warm clothes. We have been working on zipping our coats to make sure we keep warm when we’re out and about during the winter months. Some animals like to live in cold climates. We did a report and a super Art activity on the penguin. We’ve also started our Gymnastics lessons. We’re really enjoying all of our jumping, rolling and balancing activities.


October was a very busy month for all the Junior Infants. Firstly, Ann Marie the Librarian from Browne’s came to visit us in our school library. She gave every girl in Junior Infants a wonderful pack of books and read us a beautiful story.

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 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 trick or treating and showing off our fabulous costumes to our friends in school. Mrs. O’Neill caught some of the action on the camera, so make sure to take a look at our lovely pictures!


The new school year has started and our Junior Infants are so delighted to start ‘Big School’.  We’ve settled very well and we love learning new skills, games and songs. We especially like playing with our toys and new friends. Junior Infants is so much fun,  we can’t wait to see where our Junior Infant adventure goes. Mrs. O’Neill caught some of our activities on camera, make sure to take a look!
