Juniors planted some seeds using the “Innocent Big Grow Kits”. We planted spinach, salad leaves, beetroot and peas. Now that they are planted, we have left them in the sunlight and we need to water them regularly to make sure our seeds grow.
There was great excitement today as we headed off on our Easter Egg hunt. The boys found lots of eggs and when we returned to the classroom , the Easter Bunny had left us a surprise!!
We decorated our Easter Eggs with lots of different designs and colours.
Junior Infants had an egg-cellent morning looking for chocolate eggs.
The boys in Ms Madden's class really enjoyed learning all about animals as part of our theme for March 'Animals and the Vet's Surgery'.
At the role play area the boys brought their pets for a check-up.
The boys really had to use their thinking skills to remember all the things in the Vet's Surgery when playing the Roll and Colour game.
The construction site was a hive of activity building a barn for the animals one week followed by a Vet's Surgery which included an entrance, reception area and an examination room.
Working as a team was the name of the game when the boys used their cutting skills to make their own farms.
Great fun was had creating a farm in the small world area.
What incredible turn-taking abilities the boys showed in playing different games based on animals such as Old Mac Donald's Farm, Baby Animals and Quack Quack.
Look at the fantastic artistic flair the boys showed when drawing animals that live in the jungle such as tigers and monkeys.
Without a doubt the favourite station for this month was our Small World station where the boys had to work as a team to create a habitat that would be suitable for wild animals to live in. Look at how they turned out! It is so nice to get the chance to bring a little bit of the natural world into the classroom.
Juniors Infants have been working on procedural writing and today wrote the procedure for “How to make Rice Krispie buns”
The gave fantastic, detailed instructions to their teacher to make sure the buns were made correctly. We are looking forward to enjoying our tasty treats tomorrow 🧁
