In December we had a visit from Santa Claus. We learned about toys from long ago and compared them with our toys. We posted Christmas cards home to our families and we went Carol singing in Waterford Shopping Centre.
Our theme for the month of November was Space. We had a great time at Aistear pretending to be astronauts exploring the space station. We made space art and built space rockets. We read ‘Aliens Love Underpants’, ‘Back to Earth with a Hump’ and ‘My Alien and Me’.
This has been a fun-filled month for Senior Infants. For Aistear we built a farm, made paper bag scarecrows and completed an autumn hunt on our nature table. We dressed up for Halloween and had a wonderful Halloween party. Congratulations to Emily who received a certificate from the mayor for full attendance last year. Well done Emily! We are very proud of you.
We had a very busy month in September. We started Aistear and our theme for the month was ‘Our School’. We read the story ‘Don’t Eat the Teacher’ and made sharks with paper plates and paint. We made new buddies with the Sixth Class girls and they helped us make friendship bracelets for Friendship week. We made hedgehogs out of clay and are looking forward to learning all about the harvest in October.
