A big warm welcome to all the new boys and girls in Junior Infants. We are all settling in so well! Ms. Senior is very impressed!
Our theme this month is school. We are learning so much about our school, the people who work here and the school building. Our aistear (learning through play) theme is ‘School’ and we had our very first play session today. It was great and all the boys and girls had so much fun.
We are building the muscles in our hands before commencing formal handwriting. We have been in the ‘fine motor and finger gym’, doing many different activities to build our finger muscles. These activities include, cutting, colouring, threading, using tweezers and much more!
So far the boys and girls have learned the sounds ‘s’ and ‘a’. They are doing a great job preforming the sound actions, listing things that start with these sounds and singing songs with the sounds.
We are very busy in Junior Infants, but our days are certainly jam packed with fun!
