Junior Infants Rm 3 (8/3/19)

What a jam packed week we’ve had in Room 3. On Tuesday we celebrated Shrove Tuesday with pancakes and some healthy toppings.

On Wednesday Father John came to school to bless us all with ashes for Ash Wednesday to start Lent.

We started a new Aistear theme this week, The Toy shop. We had a Toy shop set up in the role play area, a puppet theatre, a construction area where we could choose Lego or duplo and a board game area.

We have been talking about Spring. We listened to the story The Very Hungry Caterpillar and learnt about the life cycle of a butterfly. Then we made our own butterfly using our handprints and we added them to the Spring flowers we made last week.

We have started our Stay Safe lessons and have been talking about feelings like being sad, happy, excited, scared and feeling safe and unsafe. You can read about the Stay Safe programme at www.staysafe.ie
