The boys and girls in Junior Infants are busy working and learning as much as they can about the vets these days! We have a fully functional vets surgery in the classroom and we get to play in groups everyday there! Everyone gets to take turns at being a vet, a receptionist , a pet owner or a vet’s nurse! We love to play and we are learning so much!!

Junior Infants went for their first ever Maths trail last Friday!

It was so much fun! We found numbers and colours, shapes and all kinds of maths things!!

We visited the school garden on the way stopping to smell the herbs from the garden!

We looked out for signs of autumn too!  We saw leaves falling and the tress bare. We love Maths and Autumn

The Farmer Visits Junior Infants

Aistear Learning through play, General, junior infants, Ms. Foley's Class, Ms. Towey No Comments »

Organic Farmer Clive Bright visited with junior infants last week! He told all about living on his farm with his wife and children, we heard all about how farmers get up really early and go to bed really early too !!

He told us about his cows and pigs and chickens and sheep! All the children were fascinated!!

He told us that the milk in our cereals comes from the farm as well as the meat and veggies for our dinner!!

We asked him lots of interesting questions!!

Farmer Bright visited as part of our Aistear Programme this term! Our theme is the restaurant and so we had a look at where all the food in the restaurant comes from!!

A very big thank you to Clive for visiting us and giving the children an invaluable insight to farm life!!

Great excitement today when Postwoman Anne Conheady came to visit us in the Mercy Primary. Anne visited all the junior infants and told us all about her very busy day! She is up delivering lots of letters and parcels to all kinds of people very early in the morning, while we are still asleep in our beds!!

This months theme in Integrated Playtime (Aistear)is The Post Office… We are learning loads of new words and lots of new skills through play! We hope to visit the post office very soon… Watch out mummies and daddies you might be getting a letter soon!!
