We were listening to the story of the 'Three Little Pigs' in Junior Infants this week.

We used these houses to help us retell the story in our groups.

We've been using Ready Set Go Maths in Junior Infants alongside our Busy at Maths book to help us with our counting. Here we are playing the game 'Happy Faces' where we have to cover all the happy faces on our board. We loved playing this game!

We did a Taste Test this week as part of our SPHE. We tried lemon, onion, carrots, avocado, gherkins and olives. When we tried our food we gave our opinions on them. Our favourites were lemon and carrots.

ELMER

We have been reading the story 'Elmer' by David McKee. This book is about Elmer the elephant who isn't grey like all the other elephants but is patchwork. We made our own patchwork elephants and stuck them up with a big Elmer. We really loved this story!

January for Aistear our theme was ‘The Shop’.

We made a shop in our classroom, made out some shopping lists, built our own shops using Lego, sorted money and made sale posters.

We have been learning how to add in Junior Infants. We have been using hula hoops and beanbags and counters and bowls to help us add up to five.

For spring we made some Cherry Blossom trees. We used our fingers to print the pink buds.

We took part in the Incredible Edibles programme this year where we grew our own vegetables in Junior Infants. We all got a choice of growing either watercress, peas or tomatoes. Every day we had a 'Vegetable Detective' who checked on our plants and made sure they had enough water.

For Saint Patrick's Day we made hats to wear for the parade but some leprechauns stole them from us! Luckily they dropped them back to us with a note explaining that they had just borrowed them for a party. They did have to shrink them though down to tiny hats to fit their heads!

In March our Aistear theme was 'At the Restaurant'. We created a restaurant in our room, we designed menus, built tables and chairs for the Restaurant using Lego and made food using Play-doh.

We've been learning about people in our community and the different jobs they do.

Thank you so much to Aisling who told us about her job as a soldier, Emma who told us about working as a hairdresser and Aisling who told us all about being a nurse!
