October was a busy month in Junior Infants! Our Aistear Theme was 'The Supermarket'. The children were in role in the role play area as shop keepers, customers, shop assistants and managers. We also built some supermarkets in the construction area and told our friends where you would find bananas, marshmallows and sweets. Some of us even included hand sanitizers at the entrance to our supermarkets!
Before the customers went shopping, they wrote their shopping lists of what they wanted to buy. When they went to the checkout they made sure they had everything on their list!
We made some Autumn leaves paintings as well as using fruit and vegetables to do some printing! We also made some Autumn leaves rubbings with crayons! Before we began our art, we sorted the leaves by colour !
Fine Motor Skills
We have been working on our fine motor skills in Junior Infants which is so important to help develop the muscles in our hands! Some ways we have been developing our fine motor skills is through threading, using tweezers to pick up pom poms and putting pegs into peg boards! We have been doing these activities as part of our Maths and Literacy stations!
