Playing Games In Junior Infants

On Friday we enjoyed playing different games in class. We are learning to play independently, take turns, follow the rules, play fairly and win and lose graciously.  


Podcasting in Rang VI

This year in Rang VI we decided to do some Podcasting. We started by making a Word of the Day Podcast. We posted on a platform called SoundCloud. Three pupils per day participate in creating the podcast – two presenters and a sound engineer. We use Audacity to record the podcast. We also occasionally use the Garageband App. We did a special Podcast featuring

6th class ‘Wonder’ful outing!

After studying the fabulous book ‘Wonder’ by RJ Palacio, our 6th class went on an outing to the cinema to see the film.  We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the book come to life on screen and it make for an interesting discussion and comparison between the merits of book and film.  


Working with Buddies

Our buddies came to work with us again on Friday.  We showed off our rhyming, cutting, colouring and sticking skills. We also performed our rhyme about a crocodile and made them jump!


Junior Infants At Work

We’ve been improving our colouring skills and learning to recognise the characters in Oxford Reading Tree.


Junior Infants working hard.

Some colouring, cutting and sticking work based on the story Peace At Last. We worked really well, didn’t need much help and didn’t get too much glue on the tables! Miss Wetherald was very happy with our work.


Junior Infants – First Two Days

We’ve settled into Junior Infants very well and have had a busy few days – playing, touring the school, painting, listening to stories, working and learning some of the routines of ‘big school’.


Room on the Broom

Junior and Senior Infants went to the Hawks Well Theatre on Mon March 27th to see Room on the Broom. Afterwards they went to Kevinsfort playground for lunch and play time! The children loved Room on the Broom and were very lucky to get such a nice sunny day at the park!


Polar Regions

We’ve enjoyed our topic on the Arctic and Antarctic. In class we’ve had a Polar Regions library with books to read and examples of various animals that inhabit the Polar Regions. We created our own books on polar bears and penguins. In art we painted an adult emperor penguin or a chick, recreated some Inuit art and made a scene showing a polar bear

For the last 4 weeks the Junior Infants have been learning all about the Arctic. They have learned about the animals and the people that live there.  We turned our dramatic play area into an igloo with an ice fishing whole and a sled with husky dogs to pull it along!! The children have had great fun learn all about the Inuit culture and
