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.

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

March6

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!
