Literacy Games for Junior Infants

Since returning to school after the Christmas holidays Junior Infants have been working very hard on both their letter sounds and their sight words.

Here are some fantastic games I found online which perhaps the children could spend some time playing and learning during their computer or ipad time?

 

Word Blend Game – Beginning and end sounds

The Quiet Machine – A game which asks children to identify the sound at the beginning of a word

Rhyming Rockets – a game where children have to shoot the rockets which rhyme with their target word.

Mole Rhyming Game – The children have to help Mole to dig his tunnel by helping him identify the rhyming words

Reggie Rhyming – The children have to help Reggie find the rhyming words. This is also a fantastic vocabulary building game for different settings.

January in Senior Infants

We are very happy to be back in school after our Christmas holidays. We have a new student teacher Ms. McCullagh to help us learn. We are learning about clothes and also about weather. We are also learning all about the number 8 and are using gooey bags to help us practice our letters and numbers!

Christmas Nativity Play by 3rd Class December 2015

Third class performed the annual nativity play shortly before the holidays. We sang some of the well known Christmas carols like Silent Night and Away in a Manger. We also sang Do You Hear What I Hear? and a lovely carol translated from the Polish language called Baby Jesus. Here are some pictures and a short video clip. The video was filmed from a distance by a 6th class child on one of our school ipads.

 

A look back at Science in 2015 in 3rd Class

   

Third class were also very lucky to have a visit from a group of Abbvie staff during science week. We were shown how to work as scientists. We carried out tests to identify materials. One lucky pupil got to dress up as a scientist. We learned a lot about the work of scientists.
