Happy Halloween!

We had a super fun day here today celebrating Halloween! The boys turned out in some very spooky costumes all while raising vital funds for Mercy Hospital. 

Aistear Time!

October 10, 2018

The boys have been delighted to finally get into our brand new Aistear room this week. At the moment we are working on a "doctor" theme. We visit the room each day and the boys have some time to play at one of our four stations: role-play, small-world, construction and sand. The boys are learning and using all sorts of new and interesting vocabulary such as "stethoscope" and "thermometer". It's lot's of fun!

Station Work

September 20, 2018

The boys have been getting used to station teaching over the past two weeks. During station time, four different activities happen in the classroom all at once. The boys are split into groups and they rotate through each activity over the course of the lesson. 

At the moment we are working on basic skills such as cutting with scissors, pencil control, sorting and matching. 

Lord Mayor's Visit

September 20, 2018

The boys were delighted to welcome the Lord Mayor of Cork to our school on Wednesday. They did a great job listening and taking part in our school ceremony. Well done boys!

The Junior Infant boys have enjoyed getting stuck in to some work over the past few days. We have now finished working on a colour per day. Today we did some fun colour sorting and counting games in pairs to revise this. We have also been working on pencil control (pictured below), Jolly Phonics, Gaeilge and as always, lots of new songs and rhymes.

Hooray! We've made it to the end of our first week! Well done to all the boys on an impressive first few days in Junior Infants. They have done themselves proud. It has been lovely to see everyone getting comfortable in their new surroundings. 

Here are some snaps from during the week. As you can see, the boys have been hard at work ;-) 

 

Early Days in Junior Infants

September 6, 2018

It's been a fun few days here in Junior Infants. The boys have been busy making new friends and getting to know their new school. Yesterday we had our first outdoor playtime and today we had our first P.E. lesson in the halla. Exciting times all round!

During these early days, our focus will be upon establishing positive routines. We will keep our work simple so that we have lots of time to learn and practice important things like listening well, lining up and working in groups. Once we have gotten into good habits we will be ready to take on much more. 

Currently, we are working on a colour per day which is accompanied by a number of hands on activities and songs. We have also taken a peek at Jolly Phonics, Bua na Cainte (Gaeilge), worked on some simple Maths.
