Nursery Rhymes - Baa Baa Black Sheep

Junior Infants learned a number of nursery rhymes in September and October.

We created our very own version of Baa Baa Black Sheep - with white wool!

We hope you enjoy our display.


Junior Infant Games

Yvonne and Karen's Junior Infant Classes have been learning new games together on the Astroturf.

We have enjoyed playing the following games together:

  • Cups and Saucers
  • Shipwreck
  • Busy Bees
  • Call the Number
  • Sun and Snowballs
  • Flush the Toilet
  • Stuck in the Mud
  • Traffic Lights

Autumn Nature Walk

Both Junior Infant classes joined each other for an Autumn Nature Walk around our school.

We used our senses to explore nature around us:

- What can you see?

- What can you hear?

- What can you feel?

- What can you smell?

We collected some autumn leaves and created a Nature Table.

The Rainbow Fish - Junior Infants

Junior Infants engaged with the story The Rainbow Fish as part of Friendship Week in LETNS.

You can also listen to our story here: https://www.storylineonline.net/books/the-rainbow-fish/

We enjoyed discussing the importance of sharing with our friends and being kind to each other.

We created our very own beautiful Rainbow Fish display!


Friendship Week in Junior Infants

This week in school is 'Friendship Week'. We have been talking about our new friends at school. We have also been learning about what good friends do. As well as this, we have completed a friendship jigsaw piece. We worked in pairs, sharing and decorating a jigsaw piece together. We will put the pieces together to create our own class jigsaw.

English Stations in Junior Infants

Junior Infants have also started English stations. This week our nursery rhyme of the week is 'Twinkle, Twinkle'. Our English stations are based on this nursery rhyme. We are working on retelling the nursery rhyme, identifying the rhyming words and developing pre-writing skills through these activities. Take a look at some of our activities in the photos below.

Maths Stations in Junior Infants

Junior Infants have started maths stations. This week and last week, the children have been working on identifying the colours through sorting, matching and classifying. They have had lots of fun completing their station activities. Take a look at some of our station work in the photos below.

Junior Infants Visit The Playground

Karen's Junior Infants visited the school playground for the first time on Monday. The class had great fun, which you can see in the photos below. Karen's Junior Infants will have playground time every Monday during yard time.

Active Week Fun

We had lots of fun for Sports Day this week with many fun activities to particpate in and the whole school got to show off their moves in a co-ordinated dance as part of Active week. Check out the pictures!

As announced by Mary in our last assemblies, there will be no written homework for children in June. We especially encouage you to go outdoors and to be as active as possible during active week. Please find some suggestions below.
