Junior and Senior Infants

There are 16 wonderful children in our classroom, 8 in Junior Infants and 8 in Senior Infants. We also have our fantastic Special Needs Assistant, Denise, in our room.

We work really hard in our classroom learning all our letter sounds and new words. We sing lots of songs both in English and Irish and also enjoy learning lots of poems and nursery rhymes. We love reading in our infant room and enjoy lots of different books from the library. At the moment we are reading books about space.

One of our favourite things is doing Aistear in our room every morning. We learn all about different themes through our play. We have already been learning about school and Halloween. At the moment we are learning all about Space. We will take part in role-play where we pretend to be in a space station, we use playdough to make different aliens and planets and we are doing lots of space themed cutting and sticking.

There are lots of budding scientists in our room and we always have great fun during Science Week in November. We will get to do lots of different science experiments. We really like making predictions and seeing which ones will be right.

We love doing PE in our class. Since September we have been learning lots of different games that we can play during lunch time. We have also been taking part in Rinka with Katie. We love learning new ways to move and make shapes with our bodies as well as learning different dances.
