Fun in May

Fun in May

The month of May has been an exciting month for us all in Junior Infants.

As the weather is getting warmer, we have been doing a lot of outdoor learning. Together with senior infants we got out our clipboards and checklists and went on a nature walk through the forest and around the campus looking for the signs of summer. It was really exciting as we found lots of signs that summer is on it way. We found butterflies, bees, birds, flowers and ladybirds. πŸ¦‹πŸŒ»πŸ¦…πŸ›

We did a mini project on water and we measured puddles using cubes. Using the puddle we did a floating and sinking experiment seeing if daisies float or if pebbles sink. Last week we made wellies for our teddy bears, now our teddies can come splashing in the puddles with us πŸ˜›

Another fun outdoor activity was practicing matching capital letters with lowercase letters

The whole school walked down to St Patrick's church in Monkstown for the morning mass. β›ͺThe Junior Infants really liked the beautiful stained glass windows.

Riain was this months birthday boy and turned 6 years old on May Day πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆ.

Yesterday was really exciting as Joe the magician came to our school and did a magic show🎩 for the whole school. Elan helped Joe make a table float in the air.

Till next time.....
