This month we wished a happy 6th birthday to Conor, Hannah Lee, Rosie and Fionn. We sang Happy Birthday to them and they all received a birthday certificate and a prize 😀😀😀
This month our Aistear theme was The Airport. Covid 19 wasn’t going to stop Junior Infants going on holidays ✈️😊✈️😊✈️😊✈️
We played the suitcase game where we practised taking turns and choosing items suitable for holidays in cold and warm countries.
Exploring our theme at the Small world station. The children got the chance to fly planes, helicopters and jumbo jet. ✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️
Designing uniforms for the flight attendants 👩✈️👨✈️👮👮♀️
This month our Aistear theme was the Emergency services. Our role play focused on the fire station.
The children made and answered 999 calls. They were in role as firefighters putting out fires and rescuing animals!
One of our stations was Water play. We used shaving foam to represent the fires and the children squirted water at them to put them out.
This was lots of fun and perfect for developing fine motor skills 😊👌🏻
At our art stations we made fire engines, fireman hats and other emergency vehicles.
We used Lego and Magsnaps to build fire stations.
Happy birthday to Oliwier, Jack & Rory who all turned 6 this month.
We sang Happy Birthday to them all and they received their birthday certificate and prize also 😊🎊🎁🎂
The Junior Infants dresses up as characters from their favourite books as part of world book day. Don’t they all look fantastic 😀
In January we celebrated Kate’s birthday and although we weren’t at school, her friends sent her lovely birthday messages on seesaw🎈🎂🎉🎁🎈
In February Zara also celebrated her birthday at home. Luckily her friends were able to send her lovely birthday messages also. 🎈🎂🎉🎁🎈
It has been lovely to see all the boys and girls settling back into school life and they have been super busy these last two weeks.
This week we did an experiment to show the importance of washing our hands 👐👐👐
We used a bowl of water, pepper to represent germs and handsoap.
We added the pepper to the water and dipped in our finger which resulted in the pepper -(germs) sticking to our finger.
We repeated this process after dipping our finger in the handsoap. When we touched the pepper (germs) they immediately dispersed away from the soap and our finger came out clean this time.
The children thought this was magic but after dome discussion they realised its actually science!
Why not try this at home ☺️👐👐👐👐
