Art in the Junior Room
St. Patrick's Day Art
We have been busy in the Junior Room preparing for St. Patrick's Day. Have a look at all the amazing Art completed by the children in the Junior Room.
1st Class Maths Trail
1st Class have been learning about Length the last week and how to measure various items. We have learned about the metre and used a metre stick to measure various items around the school year. We estimated how long the item might be and then using the metre stick measures the item. The children enjoyed all the measuring and used their maths skills so well.
The children have been enjoying their hurling sessions on a Friday. They have been working so hard on their hurling skills and working together during the game. A big thank you to Sinead for giving her time to come into the school and provide these great sessions to the children!
Halloween and Autumn
Halloween and Autumn Art
Have a look at the wonderful Halloween and Autumn art we have been doing these past few weeks.
And see all the wonderful Halloween costumes the children wore for our Halloween dress up day!
Music with Ms. Killeen
The boys and girls in the Junior Room have been working so hard with Ms. Killeen every Monday, learning lots of Autumn themed songs and putting actions with the songs.
We have a lot of pop stars in the making!!!
Signs of Autumn
We have been learning all about Autumn these past few weeks. We have learned about the different signs of Autumn all around us - from the leaves changing colour, some animals we might see and lots of conkers and acorns falling from trees!
We went exploring the school yard today in search of signs of Autumn and we found loads of different sings of Autumn!
1st Class have been working really hard these past few weeks in both Maths and English. We have been doing a lot of hands on activities, learning together and playing games to understand the content. Who says learning can't be fun??!!
We played some card games such as Go Fish and Snap to help us recognise our sight words and we played a matching game after we learned about capital letters and lowercase letters.
Learning Through Play
Aistear is the highlight of everyone's day in the Junior Room. We get the chance to play together at different stations each day. Each station ties into a specific area from the curriculum where we can develop our skills and learn through play.
We want to give a big welcome to our new Junior Infants. We all hope that you enjoy the next eight years here in Coolanarney and we look forward to seeing you all grow, learn and become part of our school community and family here.
