Christmas is coming!!

News from Senior Infants! 

We are learning about 3D shapes. 
Can you find the following shapes in your house.....
....Cubes...Cuboids...Cylinders and Spheres? 

We are busy practising for our Christmas concert . We will be saying one poem and singing two songs . Maybe the Mammies & Daddies have already heard these being practised at home!? We hope you can come along on the 18th of December. 

We have an elf in our classroom !!! He has come all the way from the North Pole . So far he hasn't got into too much mischief  - we're keeping a close eye on him and he is watching us too ! 

The new Student of the Week is picked every Friday . Ms Dunphy visits our classroom to announce the winner. Who will it be this week!? Sometimes it is so hard to decide that we have to pick two!  

The Sam Maguire is visiting our school tomorrow. We made flags to bring to the hall.  We watched the Dubliners singing Molly Malone in class and we sang along. Up the Dubs !

Our School

We have been learning all about our school this month! In Aistear we are pretending to be the teacher, secretary, SNA or Principal! We are also building our own schools and playing with a school playset. On Monday we went for a walk around our school. We followed a map to lots of exciting places like the library, the computer room and the kitchen!

Our theme for September is MYSELF, so we have been talking about ourselves & our families.  Why not continue the chat at home ! If you haven't already done so, please send in a photo from home with your child. (individual/family photo) 

We are learning the skill of PREDICTING this month - this means we look at a story book and try to predict what happens in the story - this really helps to develop our thinking skills and oral language. 

HOMEWORK starts this week - for the moment there will be one activity to do on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. 
Parents/Guardians - please tick off each activity as it's done each day. 

- Read nursery rhymes together
- make time for a bedtime story
- play with playdoh 
-colour, draw & write
- practise writing your name 
- help set the table for dinner 
- help mam or dad with the washing by matching the socks for them
