Junior Infants' December Update

Happy Christmas from Junior Infants!

Our first term in primary school has just flown by! We have finished learning all of our Jolly Phonics sounds and are now starting to blend and read words! Ms. Balfry is so proud of us all! We love reciting rhymes together and having story time at the end of each day. We are continuing our station teaching each day and are becoming very good at forming our letters,blending and developing our oral language skills. Thank you to Karina, Mrs. Wixted and Mrs. Quinn for their continued support here!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Skip Hop day and demonstrating our skills for our parents at the end of the day. We had a great Science Week where we created ‘explosions’ using baking soda and vinegar and ‘walking water’ with capillary action. A visitor from Dog’s Trust taught us all about how to protect ourselves and our pets. We are practising making reservations and appointments as part of our Oral Language and have had some fun conversations during station teaching and free play!

Junior Infants were very excited to welcome a new pupil into our class this month and we are doing our best to make Jake feel welcome. He has been such a pleasant addition to our class! We also had a surprise visitor this month in the form of one of Santa’s elves who we have called ‘Jingles’. We look forward to seeing what mischief he has been getting up to every morning!

We are so excited for our first Christmas show ‘Cinderella’. We will be singing a song and dancing on stage. We have been working very hard and can’t wait for you all to see it! Thanks to Kate for helping us prepare.

When we have performed in the school show we look forward to visiting the University of Limerick to see the pantomime, ‘Aladdin’. It’s going to be a busy but fun end to the year! We wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas and will have more updates for you in 2020!
