This Month we were learning all about the Firestation in Aistear. Today we were so lucky to get a special visit from the Firemen and their fire engine! The children had the best fun. They got to sit in the fire engine, use the fire hose and try on the fireman's helmet. It was a great day.
This month we are learning are learning all about Emergency services. We are focusing on the Firestation for our aistear theme. The children are very enthusiastic in the play corner and are really enjoying learning through play.
We had so much fun when we went on a special hunt around the school. We did exercises at different stages and when we came back into the classroom, a special visitor had left something for us ! There was great excitement when we found lots of Easter eggs from the Easter Bunny!
Attendance winners again!
We were delighted to find out our class won best attendance again this month. Attendance Ted got to stay with us for another month. This time we made chocolate rice krispie buns as a little celebration and ate them at our teddy bears picnic.
A special visit from the Gardaí
We had a special visit from the Gardaí this month. They came to tell us all about the good things they do in the community and how they can help us all if we ever need them. They explained the special things they need as part of their uniform and some children even got to try some of them on ! We had great fun.
A Special Visit from the main man !!
Santa came to our school !
This was super exciting. We heard bells outside and we jumped from our chairs to look out the window. The children couldn't believe it. Santa was waving in the window. It was so exciting. He came into the school and we got to chat to him and get our photo taken.
When we came back to the class he had left a sack for us. Inside we found a selection box for everyone. It was a great day!
We are very excited about Christmas. We have gotten into the Christmas spirit and our classroom has been transformed. We have started "Aistear" where the children engage in learning through play at different stations.We have set up role play in Santa's workshop , a playdough station, a number station, a reading station and an art station. All stations are based on the Christmas theme. The children loved engaging in this form of learning.
Our class won best attendance this month!
As a reward for winning best attendance our class gets to keep Attendance Ted for the month! There was great excitement in the class. As a treat we had a teddy bears picnic in class and we made hot chocolate with marshmallows! We had the best day!
Halloween Fun !
We had great fun for Halloween. The children dressed up in fantastic costumes and we went on our with walk all around Ayrfield.
Welcome to Room 15
Welcome and well done to our wonderful Junior Infants for settling into primary school. They have done so well surviving the full month of September. They are great at all their daily routines and are having great fun making friends, working hard and playing on the yard . Check out some artwork completed by the children. They even fixed Humpty Dumpty!
Here the children were working on their Phonological awareness skills, looking at themselves in mirrors as they sound out words and speak clearly. They had lots of fun doing this.
The children had great fun at their first GAA lesson with Chris. We are lucky we have Chris coming to teach us GAA skills every Friday.
Here the children were enjoying some Maths games in their groups. They are great at sharing and working together.
