School Year 2017-2018
Welcome to the Junior Infant page of our website. Our teachers this year are Nicola and Sinead. We will update our page with news and pictures from our classes.
Maths is Fun!
We have been creating our own patterns in Maths. We hope you like them!
The Garden Centre
We are learning about the Garden Centre in Aistear. In our role play area, we enjoy being the manager, the shop assistant, the gardener and the customer. In the small world and construction areas we like to create our own Garden Centres and in the junk art area we like to make flowers and plants.
Pancake Tuesday in Junior Infants
We enjoyed celebrating Pancake Tuesday in Junior Infants. We had jam pancakes, chocolate pancakes and lemon and sugar pancakes.
A Visit From Bumbleance
We were learning about the doctors surgery during Aistear and our teachers organised a visit from Bumbleance, the children's ambulance. We had a look inside the ambulance. It was really cool. It had a games console, DVD's, games and reading and colouring books. Have a look at our pictures....
Nicola's class went out for an Autumn walk around the school grounds. They were looking for signs of Autumn. They found orange, brown, yellow and red leaves and lots of twigs that had fallen from the trees.
Nicola's class are learning about the doctors surgery. Here they are in role play as the receptionist, the doctor, the nurse and a patient.
A big hello from our new junior infants. They have settled in well and made lots of new friends. Here are some pictures of them having fun in school.
School Year 2016-2017
A visit to Ballymun Garda Station
We went to visit Ballymun Garda station to meet Garda Dave and Garda Mairead. We are learning about the gardai in school and Dave and Mairead invited us to visit the station. We had a great day visiting the cells, dressing up in uniform, watching our teachers being handcuffed and sitting in the car with the siren on. It was really loud.
We have been learning about the airport in Aistear and were very lucky to go on a bus trip to Dublin Airport to watch some planes taking off and landing.
Mary's class decided to make the most of the recent sunshine. They took their maths lesson outside. They were learning about the story of 5 and were making 5 frames.
The Post Office
Junior Infants have been learning about the Post Office in school. They have been working in the Post Office, writing and posting letters, building their own Post Office. They also wrote a postcard to home, put it in an envelop with a stamp and walked to the local postbox to send it. It was then delivered to their homes by a real postman.
A visit to Newbridge Playground.
We went on a short trip to Newbridge Playground as a reward for always trying our best in school. We had great fun with our friends.
Fun in the hall.
Junior Infants have great fun in school. Here they are playing cups and saucers in the hall.
Ruth's class went on an Autumn walk around the school. They looked for signs of Autumn and collected leaves of different colours.
We are having lots of fun in school. We have met lots of new friends too. :-)
