Santa has come to Junior Infants. We used different materials to make our Santas – paint, glue, cotton wool and crepe paper.
We made penguins in Junior Infants. We coloured our shapes in then cut them out and finally glued them together.
We have had great fun in our opticians – making appointments, testing our eyes and of course trying on glasses. We also had a visit from Nuala an optomotrist who talked to us about looking after our eyes and all the different tests she does on eyes.
Sixth class came and showed us how to play some maths games so that we can now play them on our own.
We told the stories in our reading books to the children in fifth class. They asked us lots of questions about our books and wrote some nice comments in our record books.
During the week we did the Skeleton Dance. On Friday we dressed up, visited 6th class to show off our costumes and played some games in the hall.
We made pumpkin monsters for Halloween. First we painted the pumpkins then we drew around templates for the mouths and eyes, cut them out and stuck them onto our pumpkins. Some of us decided to add teeth.
On Wednesday we looked at the Safe Cross Code video and tried on our HiVis vests. We went for a walk with 6th class to try them out. We also had a run around the astro.
We enjoyed listening to the story of the Gingerbread Man. We sequenced some pictures to tell the story and drew the features on our own gingerbread man. We also made our own gingerbread man. They were delicious.
On Thursday we went into the soft play area. Half of us played inside and half with the construction toys. Then we swapped over.
