Welcome to Junior Infants
We have been very busy settling into Junior Infants. We have been getting to know everybody!
Our theme for September was myself. We looked at the artist Paul Klee and made self-portraits based on his work. We had to draw our picture and then cover it with tissue paper.
We also made some handprint pop art, it was lots of fun!
We were busy playing in the birthday party. We had to get everything ready before all the guests arrived. We had to make some birthday treats too with playdough.
We have been practising using a scissors and cutting very carefully. We put the right number of candles on the cake.
The theme for October was the farm and harvest. We loved playing in the farm shop. It was hard to keep all the fruit and vegetables in the right boxes!
We enjoyed listening to the story of the Three Little Pigs. We even made some pig pictures!
We thought about the little pigs’ homes and our own homes. We made junk art houses of our own. It was very exciting designing and creating our own house!
We heard the story of The Little Red Hen too. She had a hard job doing all the work on the farm. We retold the story as a class. We then made bread to eat like the little red hen– it was yummy!
