Junior Infants

Mrs O'Neill


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!
