We had an action packed month in the Junior Room. We learned all about Saint Bridget and made fabulous crosses from paper. In P.E the children continued to work on the strand of Dance. We are having great fun learning different dances.
In Maths, the children continued to work on number formation, counting, addition and subtraction. All classes also worked on Money.
In Art, as mentioned above, the children made Saint Bridget crosses, Valentine’s hearts and cards and beautiful butterflies.
We learned how to make music from various items in the classroom, such as our copies, pencils, lunch boxes and drink bottles.
Our topic this month in Aistear was The Dentist. We learned all about the dentist, healthy eating and drinking and taking care of our teeth.
We continued with Literacy and Numeracy stations this month. The children worked on their phonics, reading, writing and answering questions about a piece of text. In Numeracy, using a number line and 100 square, Mathematical games, money, mental maths and colouring by number activities were completed.
We continued working on the Incredible Edibles programme this month. We learned about the Bord Bia mark and what this symbol means. We also leaned about the fruit and vegetables that can be grown in Ireland.
As part of our Well-being programme, we worked on the topic of gratitude and completed some lovely activities such as our gratitude jars.
Today, we had great fun taking part in a Kahoot quiz as Gaeilge and we completed the topic of Éadaí.
I hope you all have a lovely midterm break. See you all on Monday.
