I am really looking forward to meeting everyone on the 21st November at the parent teacher meetings. Each meeting will be about 5 minutes long. Don't forget to return your acceptance slip!
We had a great Halloween party on Friday. All the children wore great costumes. We had a costume fashion show, did creepy Karaoke and played bumps in the night. Well done to the children who won the pumpkin raffle!
In junior infants we do lots of active learning. For literacy we do stations. This means we spend 5 minutes doing 5 different activities. The activities change during the year. At the moment we are doing:
1. Letter pegs: Looking for initial letter sound
2. Sight words matching
3. Letter formation: in our copy
4. Letter matching: Matching letters to pictures
5. Magnetic letters
