Junior Infants have been very busy since returning to school after mid-term break. In Aistear we have been learning about Neil Armstrong and his trip to the moon. We have been learning about the changes in weather in Winter and created beautiful winter wolly art. Finally, we had great fun in P.E. this term. Our tennis coach Josh has been teaching us how to play tennis.
This October Junior Infants have had a very busy few weeks learning about the themes of autumn and Halloween. We completed lots of fun activities in Aistear and learned about how some plants and animals change in autumn. This month the children also learned about how they have grown and changed since they were a baby and we examined their baby pictures to see if there were any similarities or differences. Finally, this week we celebrated Maths week. The children had great fun going on a Maths trail, creating rockets using different shapes in Art and also creating lovely colourful patterns.
National Tree Day 7th October.
Junior Infants and Senior Infants at Cloonakilla N.S celebrated National Tree Day on Thursday 7th October. Students gathered outside with their teachers near our outdoor classroom. Gerry, our caretaker, planted a Wild Cherry Tree as we watched with excitement. Students from each class helped Gerry by watering the tree after it was planted. Our Green School Committee will check on the tree and water it weekly. We are very excited to watch our tree grow and to see beautiful white and pale pink flowers in the spring.
Our Nature Walk.
Our Nature walk was on the 6th of October. We saw nettles, dock leaves, delicious blackberries, and lots of trees and birds.
Aistear The Doctor.
Some of the Junior Infants pupils are busy learning coding! The pupils are creating correctly sequenced algorithms. They are accurately entering their algorithm into a Bee-Bot and using logical reasoning to debug their algorithm or code if required. Then they share this work with an audience of their peers!
The Junior Infants have created beautiful Arts and Crafts!
