Room 9 have had a very busy start to the month of October. We are learning all about Autumn. Ask us about Autumn to see what we have learned. 🙂 We made super squirrels and very ‘tired’ hedgehogs that are getting ready to hibernate for their long sleep over winter. We are practicing our fine motor skills regularly and how to use our ‘frog on our log’. We went outside for a nature walk and spotted different kinds of leaves, conkers and even some mushrooms growing.


Homework: Monday October 11th – Friday 15th October

Using your ‘Superhero Speaking Skills’ revise saying the rhymes Hickory Dickory Dock, Humpty Dumpty, Two Little Birdies & Little Miss Muffet& Baa Baa Black Sheep

Incy Wincy Spider:

Incy Wincy Spider climed up the water spout,

Down came the rain and washed poor Incy out.

Out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain,

And the Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the spout again.

Harry the Hedgehog

I’m Harry the Hedgehog, everybody knows,
And I can feel the frosty ground nip my little toes.
So I think it would be best if I found a little nest,
Where I could lie and rest until the springtime.

Welcome Junior Infants:

This September we welcomed 18 new Junior Infants to St. Tiarnach’s. The boys and girls are setting in very well with their teachers Múinteoir Lisa and Múinteoir Orla. We love our classroom and school especially our super cool playground!

This month we are learning all about the theme of ‘Myself. We are focusing on ‘Superhero’ listening and ‘Superhero’ speaking. We learned all about showing respect to our teachers and classmates, being kind to one another, putting our ‘quiet hand’ up when we want to speak and always trying our best. We have been learning the nursery rhymes ‘Humpty Dumpty’ and ‘Hickory Dickory Dock’- Why not ask us so we can show you our wonderful speaking skills! We also love learning the letters of the alphabet and are practicing our fine motor skills and drawing lines. In Maths we love matching objects and seeing which set has the most and which has the least. In Room 9 we love learning whilst having lots of fun!!
