Junior Infants 1 (Ms. Fallon)
Welcome to Junior Infants 1
Keep an eye on this page to see what we get up to throughout the year!
This week in Maths we have been sorting different objects by their length. Some objects were long and some objects were short. We played lots of games, where we had to tell Ms. Fallon which object was longer and which object was shorter. Here are some pictures of us working hard with our groups and trying our best!
From the beginning of the year we have completed lots of different artwork. We designed our own turtles, artwork based on ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and Halloween cards using a printing technique. Our beautiful was displayed outside our classroom for everyone to see.
On our last day of school, we all dressed up for Halloween. We made magic wands with magic glitter. After we all created spooky spells using our magic wands. We had so much fun!
This week was Maths Week. Ms. Moriarty and her 6th class organised a scavenger hunt for our class. We worked with a pupil from Mr Glynn’s 4th class. We had so much fun searching for the shapes around the school garden. Afterwards we sat down in the outdoor classroom. We tested the boys and girls in 4th class and asked them very difficult questions about shapes. Take a look at us on our scavenger hunt!
During the first term, we have been doing orienteering during PE. We had so much fun working with our partners. We have really enjoyed orienteering so far!
In Maths we have been working so hard. We have been learning all about shapes. We made new friends with Cerol the Circle, Sandra the Square, Timmy the Triangle and Ruby the Rectangle. We worked together to create our own shape monsters.
The first week of October was friendship week. We were learning about how to be a good friend, focusing on the theme of sharing using the book ‘The Rainbow Fish’. We each designed our own fish. We were sharing the materials with each other and we helping each other with our fishes.
Aistear has started this month. Our class will be doing Aistear month on, month off. For the month of October our theme is Autumn/Halloween. Every day we will play at a different area: Small World, Sand, Creative, Construction and Socio-dramatic area.
We are enjoying our time in the Aistear room and we look forward to it everyday.
At the sand area we are digging and sorting shapes.
In the small world area we built hibernating dens for our hedgehog.
In the socio-dramatic area we were organising Halloween parties, writing invitations, preparing food and dressing up in costumes.
In the creative area we went on a nature walk around the school. We gathered leaves and we created leaf rubbings. We had so much fun creating hedgehogs and hoglets using play dough and sticks as their prickly spines. We had so much fun making our own monsters using play dough and google eyes. Take a look!
In the construction area we have been building spooky witches houses. Have a look!
At assembly this month we won the attendance award. Out of all the classes in the school from Junior Infants to Sixth class, everyone in our class was in school every day. We were rewarded with this special certificate by Ms Keheo at our very first assembly. On Thursday the 25th of October we will attend a special workshop as our prize. We cannot wait! We are so excited.
