Nature Walk

On our nature walk we tried to find all of the things on our checklists – acorns, conkers, autumn leaves, squirrels, and hedgehogs.



 Check out some of our wonderful art creations from this year so far




Chalk Writing

Junior Infants were busy bees this week! They were showing teacher how it’s done by writing words using their sounds! They used chalk to write not only their letters, but their numbers too.


Tasty Treats-Rice Krispie Buns

This month, Junior Infants were learning about Heat and how different things melt when they get hot. We decided to test this out by conducting an experiment. We heated chocolate and watched it melt. We put this chocolate to good use by making (and eating!) Rice Krispie Buns! Yum!




Junior Infants have been learning gymnastics. We are having a great time learning new skills!





Rainy Day Activity Breaks

We have had lots of rainy and icy days this winter so to keep fit we have been doing lots of dancing and taking shake breaks!





We have lots of wonderful artists in Junior Infants!


Junior Infants were busy forming their letters at Letter Formation Stations this week. Look at their fabulous writing





Capacity in Junior Infants

Junior Infants were making a splash in Maths this week! We were learning all about the Capacity of different containers. We decided to become Capacity Investigators by estimating and measuring the capacity of lots of containers!



We really enjoyed the sunny days we had recently!! We were learning all about animals that live in the Zoo and we decided to bring in our Zoo Animals from home!







We are fabulous artists here in Junior Infants, check out our wonderful art displays!!!!
