Some of our toys: Junior Infants


Here are four toys some of the children in junior infants brought to school to show the class.  Three of these toys are around for a long time and one is a new toy.  Ask us to spot the old toys, we are very good at it now.

Australia Day: Second Class

This week we celebrated Australia Day.....we talked a lot about how people celebrate Australia Day and about the different Animals that we know that come from Australia. We looked at pictures of the different landmarks like Sydney Harbour bridge, The Sydney Opera House and Ayers Rock to name a few.
We then drew a picture of the Sydney Opera House and made it into a 2011 Calendar that we brought home to put up in our kitchens. Here we are making our calendars.

Looking at houses: Senior Infants

We are learning all about different kinds of houses.  We talked about the advantages and disadvantages to living in different kinds of homes.   Then we got to choose which type of house we would like to live in.  We made a DataChart of the results.  Looks like most of our Mammies and Daddies will have to move to a house boat or a three story house, because these are the types of houses we like the best!!

Old and new toys: Junior Infants

We have been talking about the new things we got for Christmas.  We were all very lucky boys and girls and we all got something nice from Santa.  We looked at old toys and compared them to the toys we have now.  Some of them are very different but some have hardly changed.  Here are a few of the toys we have looked at.
