Junior Infants 2020-2021


We had lots of fun getting ready for Christmas this year in Junior Infants. The excitement began as we started Aistear around the theme of ‘Santa’s Workshop’. We wrapped presents, followed Christmas lists and made some festive patterns. Here are some pictures of all the fun that we had!

  • Practicing the steps in putting up the Christmas tree!
  • Christmas Patterns!
  • Santa’s elves were very busy!
  • Making our Christmas puddings!

Here’s some art work from the month of December, along with our kindness tree in the classroom. The children made their own decorations – very impressive!

October in Junior Infants

We learned lots about Autumn this year in Junior Infants. We started Aistear this month where we discussed Autumn clothes, signs of Autumn and some Autumn vocabulary. We even made our own leaf rubbings! The children enjoyed doing a different activity every week with their group during Aistear time.

For our last week before midterm break, we did something a little different and painted with broccoli. Our pumpkins turned out fantastic and the children had great fun!
