Senior Infants – Room 11

We have some great boys in Senior Infants this year, we can’t wait for all the fun we are going to have together!

 

Aistear

We will be doing lots of Aistear this year, on a range of themes. Here are some photos of the boys playing/

 

Blue Day 2017

We had great fun on Blue Day this year.  We all wore blue to support the Dubs in the All-Ireland final, and we sang Molly Malone and lots of Dublin chants.

 

Leaf Hunt

We went to look for Autumn leaves at the front of our school. We found lots of brown, orange, yellow and red leaves, we are going to use them in our Arts and Crafts.

 

Aistear in Room 11

We have Aistear every morning and we get to take turns with : Role Play; Construction; Small World Play; Arts and Crafts; Puzzles and Playdough.

 

RSA Talk on Road Safety

We had a visit from Lisa from the RSA and she told us great stories all about keeping safe on the road. We learned about always holding somebody’s hand, always stopping, looking and listening before we cross the road, and making sure everybody has their seat-belt on in the car.

 

Reading Buddies

We started Reading Buddies with the boys from Ms. Keyes’ 4th class.  Every week we will get to read with our reading buddies in the library.

 

10 at 10

We have been very active lately in Room 11, everyday at 10:00 a.m. we have taken part in ten minutes of exercise. We used the videos on RTE Junior to help us and we had great fun!

 

D.E.A.R. Time

We love reading in Room 11 and we have D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read) time everyday. One group gets to sit in our Calm Corner for D.E.A.R. time each day.

 

Garda Station

We have been learning about different jobs people do in the community.  We have a Garda station for Role-play in Aistear and we’ve had great fun, poor Mr. Eviston was even arrested!

 

G.A.A. Coaching

We have started G.A.A. with Colly a coach from Parnell’s G.A.A. club. We have had great fun working on our fitness and hand-eye coordination.

 

Seachtaine Na Gaeilge

We did lots of activities for Seachtaine na Gaeilge. We had a Laoch na Phrásaí competition, Jake was our winner. We had great fun in the Céilií Mór, we learned the dance ‘The Walls of Limerick’.

 

Green Day

We all wore Irish colours for Green Day. We performed an Irish poem and song at assembly.

 

World Book Day

To celebrate World Book Day, the boys in Room 11 dressed up as their favourite book characters. We had great fun and had a parade through the Parent’s Association coffee morning.
