Ms. Bermingham’s Junior Infants have been learning all about caterpillars for the past few weeks. We even had some caterpillars join our class! Today, we were finally able to release our butterflies in our wonderful school garden. It was lovely to have 6th class join us as we let our beautiful butterflies go. We told them to say a special hello to Ollie for us.

It is hard to believe we are almost halfway through the year. Junior infants have settled into ‘big school’ so well. Ms. Bermingham is so proud of them and how much they have learned so far. This month, we learned all about the North and South Poles. We were Polar Explorers in our role play corner where we travelled to the Arctic/Antarctic. We made igloos with our blocks and sensory snow. We also played with water and did some floating and sinking experiments. The children have learned so many new words relating to our Polar theme, like “hatch”, “huddle”, “flipper”, “frost”, and “waddle.” It is great to hear them using them in class with one another.
We were so excited to get hot lunches this month and the boys and girls are loving them! They get so excited for lunchtime! We also celebrated Stephen’s birthday this month and surprised him by singing ‘Happy Birthday’ and making him lovely birthday cards.
We can’t wait to see what the rest of the year will bring.
Junior Infants are well and truly in the festive spirit after a brilliant day today! We had fun looking for our Elf on the Shelf, had our Christmas dinner and ice-cream, sang Christmas songs, and watched our very own Christmas performance which you can watch by clicking here or on the link below. The boys and girls in Junior Infants have had a brilliant first term and are so excited for Santa to come very soon.
Nollaig Shona gach duine!
Ms Bermingham, Stephen and all the girls and boys in Junior Infants
Ms. Bermingham’s Junior Infants were so excited to welcome a very special visitor to their playtime today. Garda Rob from Fitzgibbon Street Garda Station very kindly came to visit the boys and girls in Junior Infants who have been learning all about the work Gardaí do. They have been very busy working in our Garda Station role play corner, playing with traffic in small world, making Garda cars in arts and crafts, and learning lots of rhymes and songs about policemen and women. Garda Rob showed the children his uniform, walkie talkie and handcuffs. He took the time to speak to the children about his job and answer all of their questions. He even worked with our very own mini police officers in our station today. Thank you Garda Rob for all the work you do and for taking the time to come and visit us.
