⭐⭐February in the Junior Room⭐⭐

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.

⭐⭐Junior Room-27th September-01st October⭐⭐

We had another fantastic week in the Junior Room.  The children took part in dance breaks, practiced their handwriting and pencil control, continued to work on the theme of homes during play time and worked really well on their fine motor skills.  The children took part in different games during P.E and worked very well on revising our sounds and phonological awareness.  We also had some yummy pizza on Friday to celebrate the children’s First Holy Communion day , which took place recently.   We look forward to another fun filled week next week.

📗📗The month of May in the Middle Room📕📕

This is a snap shot from the Middle Room for the month of May.  We worked on The Stay Safe programme, began studying our class novel ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’ and learned all about Gráinne Ní Mháille in History.

The children worked on strand of Gymnastic in P.E and in Art the children created various items based on the theme of summer from clay.

We worked on An Teilifís as Gaeilge and had great fun recapping on what we had covered in the form of a Kahoot quiz.

World Book Day-Middle Room

On Friday, the child had the opportunity to dress up as their favourite character from a book.  The costumes were fabulous.

Also, to celebrate the day, the children took part in DEAR time-‘ Drop Everything and Read.’  The children listened to an extract from ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ and then completed activities on this amazing book. The children loved this exercise.

Epic time reading!🙃👌 Junior Room – World Book Day 2020

As part of our World Book Day celebrations, the children dressed up as their favourite character. They also had time to explore our new reading app Epic, which allows the children to lose themselves in a wide genre of books, some audio and some read along also. Each child chose a book to listen to today and gave feedback to the rest of the class. They also completed a written activity based on their dress up character. We always read alot of books in class, this week however It is safe to say we broke a record! One of the favourites of the week was a story called ‘The book with no pictures’. With loud chanting ‘AGAIN ! AGAIN!’ It was without a doubt a hit in class. You can check out the link below to give you an insight into the type of book it is.

Remember a book is a dream that you hold in your hand!

Dancing football , just do it all
Kick it high into the sky.
Quick quick , and do not slip
Score the goal, up mayo !
Active, Active , all the way ,
Things we can do , like jog and play.
Playing games , like hide seek.
the fastest runner, oh do not peak.
In class activities , the joys of it all.
Playing high knees and jumping jacks
Always been mind full of not hurting our backs.
We often keep cool, when cycling to school.
Walking and skipping , never acting the fool.
So let’s keep active every day.
