We are really getting into the festive spirit in Senior Infants! Christmas has been our theme this month. We read a story called ‘The Jolly Christmas Postman’ about a postman who delivered letters to lots of the characters we know such as The Three Bears, Humpy Dumpty, Little Red Riding Hood and the big bad wolf. We enjoyed sequencing and retelling the story using stick puppets. We completed story maps in groups. During Aistear, the elves were hard at work in Santa’s workshop getting the toys ready for Christmas. We did lots of nice art too !! It has been a busy but fun month!
For our 10 Stars treat, we had hot chocolate in the staffroom and watched a movie!
We did a fun experiment called Dancing Raisins!
Look at our fabulous Winter Art!
In November, our theme was Houses and Homes. We learned about the different types of houses and the rooms inside. We did great writing about our homes. Have a look below! In Aistear, our roleplay area was transformed into an Estate Agents. We really enjoyed buying and selling different types of homes.In the construction area, we designed and built houses. In the small world area, we played with the dolls house. In the junk art area we designed an apartment, a 2 story, a bungalow and a cottage. We learned the song ‘ Cúigear fear ag tógail tí’. We had great fun!!
In Maths, we were learning about 2D Shapes. We made shape monsters. We were learning about the number 7 and found room 7 upstairs!!
