Junior Infants are such a busy class. They work so hard and even fit in great play time! This week we have been floating and sinking at the water table! The water is magical and full of glitter! We love playing with the blocks in our classroom. We have to remember to wear our hard hats just like the builders do on a constuction site! We made some great plans on paper and constructed our buildings! We love playing in the home corner too, we sometimes cook dinner for Miss Morton and Gaye! Gaye loves the playdough, she's very good at helping us make our numbers and letters! We just love playtime so much. Mrs Taylor, Miss Earle and Ms Mac Mahon love coming to visit us at playtime. They think we are the best Junior Infants in the whole country!
Did you see our wonderful Kandinsky paintings outside our classroom? We drew lots of circles and painted them our favourite colours. It was very important to concentrate and make sure we got rid of all the white spaces! Miss Morton says we are just like the famous artists, except even better! We did a little play of the Three Little Pigs, Mrs Darlington came to visit when we illustrated the story! She thought our drawings were photographs because they were so realistic!
We have been doing some very tricky work this week; Miss Morton can't believe how clever we all are. She taught us some new sounds and we are already able to read some words! She told us the fantastic news that soon we will be getting reading homework! We are all so excited, we shouted HOORAY in class when she told us! Some of the mums and dads come in to tell us stories in the mornings, wait till they hear the great news! They will be very busy helping Miss Morton listen to all of us reading in the mornings! We will have our own special word bags and sound books! We are so grown up!
We hope to have a special visitor in next week to teach us all about their job! Miss Morton promises to let you all know how it went! Can you believe Miss Morton is meeting all our mums and dads next week to tell them how wonderful we all are? Wow, Junior Infants is very busy but boy is it fun! We will update you all again soon!
