Pumpkin carving, spiderwebs, school parades, a dress up day, baking Halloween cupcakes... it's all fun and games in Junior Infants Green!
During the month of October we had our 'Health and Wellbeing week'. This was a lovely week where Linda organised activities for the whole school to take part in. We learned about friendships, exercise, healthy eating and mindfulness. Carambola kindly gave us some bananas to bring home to help us eat our five-a-day. However, we made sure to use them as Banana-phones before eating them!
Health and Wellbeing week also brought back the very exciting 'Mile with a Smile' walk. This is a walk around our school grounds that takes place during special occasions.
Have a look at some of the other fun activities we did during the month of October. We learned all about the Supermarket as part of our Aistear theme and also about the festival of Halloween which is celebrated in Ireland and around the world on October 31st. We discussed the traditions of trick or treating, games like 'Bob the Apple' and also the many different costumes and clothes that people wear for Halloween.
Junior Infants walked with Senior Infants, First and Second classes all around the school building for our Halloween parade to celebrate the last day before midterm break. We brought musical instruments with us to celebrate in our Halloween costumes! There was even a big dinosaur ringing a bell who was leading us in the parade! I wonder who that was...
Hi my name is Ellen and welcome to the Junior Green blog. See what we get up to in our first year of school!
