Junior Infants had a lovely visit from Jake’s Grandmother, Fiona, who works as a dental hygienist. She told us all about how to look after our teeth and how to brush them thoroughly. We loved taking turns with the giant toothbrush to clean the huge set of teeth that she brought. She told us that water is the best drink to take every day if we want to have strong healthy teeth. We loved removing play dough ‘plaque’ from between the teeth of mega blocks using toothbrushes and floss. We imagined what the teeth of different animals might look like compared to ours. Our dentist role play corner was really fun too.
This week in school we got a new student teacher, Miss Shorten she is very nice!
In drama we were split into 2 groups and 1 person from each group got a picture we all had to argue on what the picture was about.In P.E. we played a hockey match.
On Wednesday we were split into 5 groups and started projects.
On Thursday we had P.E and music with Miss O’Driscoll, it was fun, we learned the song riptide !
On Friday we did art we molded birds using clay!!!
Junior Infants have been learning all about our bodies this week. We have focused on exploring our 5 senses in Science and tried to identify mystery smells and sounds. We played a really fun game where we took turns to roll the 5 senses dice to try to complete our Mr Potato Head. We loved working together to draw life size bodies, filling in as many body parts as we could. We looked at some paintings by Picasso which we thought were very strange and we created our own funny faces inspired by his work. Perhaps the most fun was had in the role play corner where we took turns being doctors, nurses and patients. What an action packed week, full of learning and fun!
Last week 4th were making ghosts for Halloween. We read our super hero stories to our buddies in junior infants,then we showed them our art .
We finished our Italian projects and showed them to the class.We also made pizza. It had ham,pepperoni and mozzarella cheese for the toppings.
We practiced our song with 3rd class for grandparents day. We all were very nerves for our maths test and for the Irish verb test.
