November news from Junior Infants

posted in: Junior Infants News | 0

November has been a busy month in Junior Infants with our theme being “Water” and sub-theme “houses and homes”.  Read our blog below to see some of the exciting things we have been up to!


They played in the “Laundrette” for Role play.  They have become very good at separating their clothes by colour, pairing socks and hanging up on the clothes line!

We were busy learning all about floating and sinking in Science.  We experimented with lots of different materials and we drew our results!  We also made wooden rafts and we were thrilled when they floated!!

Another of our Science experiments for Science week was the rainbow skittle experiment.  First we did a Maths lesson with the skittles making shapes and patterns.  Then we added water and watched the magic happen!

They learned about the storm “Noah’s Ark”.  They used their cutting skills to make doves and they painted lovely rainbows.  They learned the science about what makes a rainbow.  They made rain drop mosaics to brighten up our windows.

Junior Infants have been doing a fabulous job with their sounds, blending, dictation and writing – we are so proud of them!

We learned about different types of houses and homes and what materials they can be made of.  Then we designed our own houses using scrap paper!

We also have had lots of fun in P.E. this month!

Junior Infants have worked so hard and have learnt many new things.  They learnt how to cut, stick, participate in a fire drill and to develop their motor skills.  They are all very excited about Halloween and dressing up.

Enjoy your mid term break and stay safe.

Learning through play

Junior Infants have had a busy first month in Taney!  They have worked hard on their fine motor skills to prepare for writing and have been busy learning all about patterns in Maths.

Learning through play is fundamental in early years and this month our theme was “Myself” and “The Baby Clinic”.  The boys and girls did a great job looking after the babies and making sure they are healthy and well cared for.

Junior Infants have settled in really well into Taney school.  We have all been getting to know one another and making lots of new friends.  Here is a sample of some of the work they have completed.

Congratulations to one of my Junior Infants who entered her boat into “Dublin’s Outdoor” competition (see top middle photo).  She won the “runner up” prize.  We are very impressed with her lovely colouring and fantastic cutting and sticking!  A great job – Well done!
