Juniors & Seniors
Welcome to Juniors & Seniors
Class Teacher: Ms Melbourne
What a Start!
It has been so much fun getting to know one another and making great friends in Junior and Senior Infants. We have learned all about one another as we have focussed on the theme of ’Myself’ in SPHE. We have learned we are all different and special. We designed our very own jersey and have been doing lots of colourful art in our favourite colours and designs.
In SESE we have been exploring the season of Autumn. We went on a Nature Walk in the beautiful school grounds and identified many signs of Autumn. We found lots of acorns to plant at home. Junior Infants had a very exciting day where they planted an oak tree. They can now watch it grow with them as they journey through the school.
We have had lots of lovely outdoor classes from Storytime on our comfy cushions in the Hairy Acre to PE and Music etc. and count ourselves very lucky we have so much space. We are also honing our Tag Rugby skills with classes on Tuesdays.
It is been a lovely month and we are happy to be with all of our friends learning and playing together.
Maths Week in the Infant Classroom
We had great fun this week with lots of fun and engaging maths activities.
We used our ‘Maths eyes’ to discover Maths all around us and found Maths everywhere!
We completed lots of number games with dice, peg boards and our interactive whiteboard.
We looked at pattern all around us and made our own patterns with cubes, coloured bears ad colouring activities.
Our Maths hunt was our favourite and we completed it in record time.
A brilliant week with little budding mathematicians in the Infant classroom!
