26 super boys and girls started 'big school' in Kilbride National School this year. They are looking forward to the year ahead - lots of learning and fun. Take a look at their lovely smiles on their first day in Junior Infants.
We have been busy doing lots of fine motor activities in Junior Infants during September.
We have been using playdoh, threading, building, cutting, pinching, making jigsaws, writing and lots more.
Take a look at some photos..
The children in Junior Infants are working hard at their writing!
We have been mark making using pencils, markers, chalk and cotton buds with paint.
The boys and girls even practised drawing shapes and writing their name on the yard using chalk.. it looked great until the rain washed it all away!!
We love maths!
Take a look at some of the great sorting and matching activities the boys and girls were doing.
We brought our learning outside to make the best of the sunny days
The kind boys and girls in Junior Infants put poor Humpty together again!
The children enjoy free play time in the classroom at the end of the day.
They enjoy playing with the kitchen, train set, farm, cars, lego, playdoh, doll house and sand.
When it's raining and the children can't go outside at lunchtime, we like to have a run around in the hall and play some games together!
Ted is our newest student in Junior Infants!
Ted loves adventures. Each Friday he will go home with a little boy/ girl and spend the weekend with them. He then returns to school on Monday, ready for a busy week of learning.
The children in Junior Infants have been doing great work at their handwriting. They are practising their pre- writing shapes using pencils, markers and paint but they love using the chalk outside in the outdoor classroom and on our yard.
The children visited Trim library to see a puppet show as part of the Children's Book Festival.
They also designed their favourite book character using a wooden spoon. Take a look at the wonderful work by our super Junior Infants.
In Kilbride National School everyone enjoyed maths week!
Junior infants participated in lots of fun activties including a whole school maths trail, designing and making shape monsters and doing a daily maths challenge as part of their homework.
We love getting out in the fresh air for PE. The children enjoyed practising relays during October.
The boys and girls have been learning lots about Autumn. They know many facts about squirrels, hedgehogs and trees. They enjoyed going on a nature walk around our school to collect leaves. Everyone did lots of beautiful Autumn art - take a look at our photos.
Everything is starting to get a little spooky in our classroom in preparation for Halloween! Take a look at our fingerprint ghosts..
Our fairytale of the month for January is 'The Gingerbread Man'. We read the story, sequenced it, designed our own Gingerbread men and we even learned the story in Irish 'An Buachaillín Sinséir'.
The children have enjoyed the theme of 'Weather' during our Aistear Stations in January.
Our wonderful Junior Infants are now 100 days in Kilbride National School. We celebrated this very special day by dressing up as 100 year old Grannies and Grandads!! We had so much fun.
We all fit together!
In a world where you can be anything, be kind.
